HERNDON, Va., June 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As required by the existing charter agreement, this Fall, the Agora Cyber Charter School in PA ("Agora") must submit an application for the renewal of its charter agreement with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), to continue operations for the 2015-2016 school year and beyond.
The Agora Board has elected to use an RFP process for the services and products required to operate the school. Proposals are due to the Agora Board on July 25, 2014.
K12 Inc. has been working with the Board and looks forward to providing robust submissions for the provision of educational services, products, and curriculum. We are confident that this process will lead to an even stronger application to PDE for the renewal of the school's charter. We are also confident that the value K12 has brought, and can continue to bring, to the students of Agora will be clear in this process. We are proud that so many of the parents with students at Agora have expressed overall satisfaction with the school and especially with K12's curriculum.
We value our long term relationship with Agora and look forward to building on the positive momentum we have created under the Board's leadership. The innovations K12 is making in curriculum, instruction and technology offer Agora students continued learning options to fit their individual needs.
