investors in K12, Inc. ("K12" or the "Company") (NYSE: LRN) in the U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Investors who purchased shares of the Company's common stock between
September 9, 2009 and December 16, 2011 (the "Class Period"), and lost
more than $100,000, are encouraged to contact Newman Ferrara partner

concerning this notice. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must

will direct the litigation and participate in important decisions
including whether to accept a settlement and how much of a settlement to

Company during the Class Period.
According to the Complaint, K12, an educational service software
company, failed to disclose that: (1) it engaged in fraudulent
recruiting and sales strategies designed to attract students
irrespective of their potential to properly complete the curriculum; (2)
that its infrastructure purposely pressured its employees to pass
students despite insufficient demonstration that the students had met
the criteria for completion of the material; (3) that its results with
math and reading performance did not meet minimum statewide standards
for those subjects; and (4) its assertions made to investors regarding
its overall financial and academic success were false and misleading.
Whistleblowers: Persons with knowledge that may aid in the
investigation of this matter are encouraged to contact the firm. Under
Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Bill, whistleblowers are protected from
employer retaliation and may be entitled to as much as 30 percent of the
