Item 14.    Indemnification of Directors and Officers

     K12 Inc. is incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. Reference is made to Section 102(b)(7) of the
Delaware General Corporation Law, or DGCL, which enables a corporation in its original certificate of incorporation or an
amendment thereto to eliminate or limit the personal liability of a director for violations of the director’s fiduciary duty,
except (1) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders, (2) for acts or omissions not
in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (3) pursuant to Section 174 of the
DGCL, which provides for liability of directors for unlawful payments of dividends of unlawful stock purchase or
redemptions or (4) for any transaction from which a director derived an improper personal benefit.

      Reference is also made to Section 145 of the DGCL, which provides that a corporation may indemnify any person,
including an officer or director, who is, or is threatened to be made, party to any threatened, pending or completed legal
action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, other than an action by or in the right of
such corporation, by reason of the fact that such person was an officer, director, employee or agent of such corporation or is
or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or
enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement
actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, provided such officer,
director, employee or agent acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in, or not opposed to, the
corporation’s best interest and, for criminal proceedings, had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful.
A Delaware corporation may indemnify any officer or director in an action by or in the right of the corporation under the
same conditions, except that no indemnification is permitted without judicial approval if the officer or director is adjudged to
be liable to the corporation. Where an officer or director is successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action
referred to above, the corporation must indemnify him against the expenses that such officer or director actually and
reasonably incurred.

     Our Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation provides for, and upon consummation of this offering, our
amended and restated bylaws will provide for indemnification of the officers and directors to the full extent permitted by
applicable law.

     The Underwriting Agreement provides for indemnification by the underwriters of the registrant and its officers and
directors for certain liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or otherwise.

Item 15.   Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities

      Set forth in chronological order is information regarding all securities sold and employee stock options granted from
June 2004 to date by the Company. Also included is the consideration, if any, received for such securities, and information
relating to the section of the Securities Act and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to which the
following issuances were exempt from registration. None of these securities were registered under the Securities Act. No
award of options involved any sale under the Securities Act. No sale of securities involved the use of an underwriter and no
commissions were paid in connection with the sales of any securities.

     1. At various times during the period from July 2004 through July 2007, we granted options to purchase an aggregate of
2,432,206 shares of common stock to current and prior employees and directors at a weighted average exercise price of
$10.66 per share.

     2. In addition to the foregoing option grants, at various times during the period from July 2004 through July 2007, we
granted options to purchase 1,441,168 shares of our common stock to current and prior employees related to stand-alone
agreements at a weighted average exercise price of $12.35 per share.

     3. In December 2003, we issued and sold an aggregate of 18,656,716 shares of Series C Preferred Stock. Pursuant to the
payment in kind dividend feature of Series C Preferred Stock, we have issued an aggregate of 12,399,833 additional shares
of Series C Preferred Stock through a series of stock dividends to existing Series C Preferred stockholders from January
2005 through January 2007.

    4. In October 2007, we issued an aggregate of 196,078 shares of common stock in connection with our acquisition of
Power-Glide Language Courses, Inc. to the stockholders thereof.

     5. On November 6, 2007, the Company entered into an agreement to sell to a non-U.S. person in a transaction outside
the United States in reliance upon Regulation S under the Securities Act, concurrently with and contingent upon the closing
of the initial public offering and at the initial public offering price, $15,000,000 worth of shares of the Company’s common
stock.

     The issuances of the securities described in paragraph 1 were exempt from registration under the Securities Act under
Rule 701, as transactions pursuant to compensatory benefit plans and contracts relating to compensation as provided under
such Rule 701. The recipients of such options and common stock were related to compensation. Appropriate legends were
affixed to any share certificates issued in such transactions. All recipients either received adequate information from us or
had adequate access, through their employment with us or otherwise, to information about us.

     The issuances of the securities described in paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 were exempt from registration under the Securities
Act in reliance on Section 4(2) because the issuance of securities to recipients did not involve a public offering. The recipient
of securities in each such transaction represented their intention to acquire the securities for investment only and not with a
view to resale or distribution thereof, and appropriate legends were affixed to share certificates and warrants issued in such
transactions. Each of the recipients of securities in the transactions described in paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 were accredited or
sophisticated investors and had adequate access, through employment, business or other relationships, to information about
us.

     Upon issuance and sale, the securities described in paragraph 5 will be exempt from registration under the Securities
Act pursuant to the terms of Regulation S promulgated thereunder.

     All of the shares of Series C Preferred Stock described in paragraph 3 will automatically convert into shares of common
stock prior to completion of this offering.

      Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and
controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that
in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the
Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other
than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant
in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in
connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been
settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it
is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issues.

     The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that:

           (1) For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, the information omitted from the form of
     prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus
     filed by the Registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of
     this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective.

          (2) For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each post-effective amendment that
     contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered
     therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

    The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes to provide to the underwriters at the closing specified in the
Underwriting Agreement, certificates in such denomination and registered in such names as required by the underwriters to
permit prompt delivery to each purchaser.

                                                                          II-4

     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Registrant has duly caused this registration
statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the City of Herndon, Commonwealth
of Virginia on December 12, 2007.

                                                     STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT
   THIS STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is entered into effective as of June 1, 2006 by and between K12 INC., a Delaware
corporation (the “Company”), and JOHN BAULE (the “Optionee”).


                                                                 RECITALS
   WHEREAS, the Company and the Optionee mutually desire that the Company grant Optionee stock options to purchase shares of Common
Stock of the Company to provide an incentive for the Optionee’s continuous employment with the Company and to motivate the Optionee to
increase value for the Company’s stockholders.
   NOW THEREFORE, the parties agree as follows:
    1. Grant of Stock Options. Subject to the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, the Company hereby grants to the Optionee an option
to purchase up to Four Hundred Thousand (400,000) shares of Common Stock of the Company (the “Stock”) at an option exercise price of One
Dollar and Fifty Cents ($1.50) per share (the “Options”). The shares of Stock purchasable upon exercise of the Options are hereinafter
sometimes collectively referred to as the “Option Shares.” The Options are not intended to be, and shall not be treated as, incentive stock
options (as such term is defined under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”)). Optionee understands and
acknowledges that the Company is granting the Options hereunder outside of, and not as a part of, the K12 Inc. Amended and Restated Stock
Option Plan. The Company shall reserve sufficient shares of Stock from its authorized but unissued and not outstanding shares of Stock as set
forth in its Certificate of Incorporation, for purposes of issuing Option Shares to the Optionee upon the exercise of the Options in accordance
with the terms set forth herein.
     2. Vesting Schedule. Subject to the provisions of Section 3 below, the Options shall vest and become exercisable in four (4) annual
installments. The Optionee shall have the right hereunder to purchase from the Company the following number of Option Shares upon exercise
of the Options, on and after the following dates, in cumulative fashion:
   (a)   on and after June 1, 2007, One Hundred Thousand (100,000) Option Shares;

   (b)   on and after June 1, 2008, One Hundred Thousand (100,000) Option Shares;

   (c)   on and after June 1, 2009, One Hundred Thousand (100,000) Option Shares; and

   (d)   on and after June 1, 2010, One Hundred Thousand (100,000) Option Shares.
   Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Vesting Acceleration Event occurs prior to the date that all Options have vested pursuant to the above
vesting schedule, fifty percent (50%) of the Options that have not yet vested as of the date of the Vesting Acceleration Event shall
automatically accelerate and become immediately vested and exercisable as of the date of the Vesting Acceleration Event.
   As used herein, a “Vesting Acceleration Event” means the occurrence of any of the following events while Optionee is employed with the
Company: (i) a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (ii) a merger or consolidation of the Company into or with
another entity that results in the Company’s stockholders immediately prior to such transaction owning less than fifty percent (50%) of the
voting power of the surviving entity (or its parent) immediately after such transaction, or (iii) a sale of outstanding securities of the Company
by stockholders of the Company (excluding any sale in connection with any public offering) that results in the Company’s stockholders
immediately prior to such transaction owning less than fifty percent (50%) of the Company’s voting power immediately after such transaction.

3. Termination of Options.
   (a) Subject to earlier termination as provided in the other provisions of this Agreement, the Options and all rights hereunder with respect
thereto, to the extent such rights shall not have been exercised, shall terminate and become null and void on December 31, 2013 (the “Option
Term”).
   (b) Upon termination of Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company by reason of Optionee’s death, the Options held by
Optionee to the extent not exercisable on the date of Optionee’s death shall terminate on the date of Optionee’s death. The Options, to the
extent exercisable on the date of Optionee’s death, maybe exercised by Optionee’s estate or beneficiaries, personal representative or heirs,
provided that such exercise occurs prior to the earlier of: (i) one hundred eighty (180) days after the date of Optionee’s death, or (ii) the
expiration of the Option Term. The Options held by Optionee to the extent exercisable on the date of Optionee’s death shall terminate at the
end of the earliest of the periods specified in clauses (i) and (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence.
   (c) Upon termination of Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company by reason of “permanent disability” (as determined by
the Company’s Compensation Committee, or if Optionee has an employment or engagement agreement with the Company, then as determined
pursuant to the applicable provisions of said agreement, if any), the Options held by Optionee to the extent not exercisable on the date of
Optionee’s termination shall terminate on the date of Optionee’s termination. The Options, to the extent exercisable on the date of Optionee’s
termination, may be exercised by Optionee or personal representatives, provided that such exercise occurs prior to the earlier of: (i) one
hundred eighty (180) days after the date of Optionee’s termination, or (ii) the expiration of the Option Term. The Options held by Optionee to
the extent exercisable on the date of Optionee’s termination shall terminate at the

                                                                         2
end of the earliest of the periods specified in clauses (i) and (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence.
    (d) Upon Optionee’s termination of employment or engagement with the Company either by resignation or upon termination of Optionee’s
employment or engagement with the Company for “cause” (as determined by the Company’s Compensation Committee, or if Optionee has an
employment or engagement agreement with the Company, then as determined pursuant to the applicable provisions of said agreement, if any),
all the Options held by Optionee to the extent not exercisable on the date of Optionee’s termination shall terminate on such date, and all
Options held by Optionee to the extent exercisable on such date shall terminate on the date of Optionee’s termination.
   (e) If Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company terminates for any reason other than as described in paragraphs (b), (c) or
(d) of this Section 3, then the Options held by Optionee to the extent not exercisable on the date of Optionee’s termination shall terminate on
the date of Optionee’s termination. The Options, to the extent exercisable on the date of Optionee’s termination, may be exercised by Optionee,
provided that such exercise occurs prior to the earlier of: (i) ninety (90) days after the date of Optionee’s termination, or (ii) the expiration of
the Option Term. The Options held by Optionee to the extent exercisable on the date of Optionee’s termination shall terminate at the end of the
earliest of the periods specified in clauses (i) and (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence.

4. Exercise of Options.
   (a) The Optionee may exercise the Options with respect to all or any part of the number of Option Shares then exercisable hereunder from
time to time by giving the Chief Financial Officer of the Company written notice of exercise. Each such notice of exercise shall specify the
number of Option Shares as to which the Options are to be exercised and the date of exercise thereof, which date shall be at least five days (but
not more than fifteen days) after the giving of such notice unless an earlier time shall have been mutually agreed upon by Optionee and the
Company.
   (b) Full payment of the option price for the Option Shares being purchased by the Optionee shall be made by the Optionee in cash (in U.S.
dollars) on or prior to the date of exercise specified in the notice of exercise.
   (c) The Company shall cause to be delivered to the Optionee a certificate or certificates for the Option Shares then being purchased (out of
theretofore unissued Stock or reacquired Stock, as the Company may elect) as soon as is reasonably practicable after the full payment for such
Option Shares and satisfaction of all other conditions to exercise set forth in this Agreement.
  (d) If the Optionee fails to pay for any of the Option Shares specified in a notice of exercise or fails to accept delivery thereof, the
Optionee’s right to purchase such Option Shares shall terminate.

                                                                          3
    (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Optionee’s right to exercise Options and be issued Option Shares is subject
to the conditions set forth in this Section 4(e) in addition to any other conditions set forth elsewhere in this Agreement. The Optionee may not
exercise any Options in whole or in part or be issued any Option Shares unless (i) the transaction is in compliance with all applicable state and
Federal securities laws, (ii) the transaction is exempt from the qualification and registration requirements of applicable state and Federal
securities laws, and (iii) the Company and the Optionee comply with any requirements applicable to the transaction, if any, that are contained
in any credit or loan agreement to which the Company is a party. In addition, the obligation of the Company to deliver Stock shall be subject to
the condition that if at any time the Company shall determine that the listing, registration, or qualification of the Options or the Option Shares
upon any securities exchange or under any state or Federal law, or the consent or approval of any governmental regulatory body, is necessary
as a condition of, or in connection with, the Options or the issuance or purchase of Stock thereunder, the Options may not be exercised in whole
or in part unless such listing, registration, qualification, consent, or approval shall have been effected or obtained free of any conditions not
acceptable to the Board of Directors of the Company.
    5. Adjustment of and Changes in Stock of the Company. In the event of any change in the outstanding shares of Stock by reason of a
stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, split-up, combination, exchange of shares, or the like, the Company’s Compensation
Committee shall appropriately adjust the number and kind of shares subject to the Options and the option price.
     6. No Rights of Stockholders. Neither the Optionee nor any personal representative shall be, or shall have any of the rights and privileges
of, a stockholder of the Company with respect to any shares of Stock purchasable or issuable upon the exercise of the Options, in whole or in
part, prior to the date certificates for shares of Stock are issued to the Optionee.
     7. Non-Transferability of Options. During the Optionee’s lifetime, the Options hereunder shall be exercisable only by the Optionee or
any guardian or legal representative of the Optionee, and the Options shall not be transferable except, in case of the death of the Optionee, by
will or the laws of descent and distribution, nor shall the Options be subject to attachment, execution, or other similar process. In the event of
(a) any attempt by the Optionee to alienate, assign, pledge, hypothecate, or otherwise dispose of the Options, except as provided for herein, or
(b) the levy of any attachment, execution, or similar process upon the rights or interest hereby conferred, the Company may terminate the
Options by notice to the Optionee and they shall thereupon become null and void.
    8. Employment/Engagement Not Affected. Neither the granting of the Options nor exercise thereof shall be construed as granting to the
Optionee any right with respect to continuance of employment or engagement with the Company or affect any right which the Company may
have to terminate the employment or engagement of Optionee.
   9. Amendment of Options. The Options may be amended by the Company’s Compensation Committee at any time (i) if the Company’s
Compensation Committee

                                                                         4
determines, in its reasonable discretion, that amendment is necessary or advisable in the light of any addition to or change in the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or in the regulations issued thereunder, or any federal or state securities law or other law or regulation,
which change occurs after the date of grant of an Option and by its terms applies to the Option; or (ii) other than in the circumstances described
in clause (i), with the consent of the Optionee.
    10. Sale, Merger, Consolidation and Liquidation of the Company. In the event of a sale of the Company (whether by merger,
consolidation, sale of assets, sale of stock or otherwise), if the surviving or acquiring entity or purchaser does not expressly agree to assume the
Options issued hereunder, all Options issued hereunder which are unvested shall terminate and all Options issued hereunder which are vested
(including all Options that become vested as a result of a Vesting Acceleration Event) but not exercised prior to or as of the closing of such
event shall terminate. In the event of a dissolution or liquidation of the Company, all Options issued hereunder which are unvested shall
terminate and all Options issued hereunder which are vested but not exercised prior to such dissolution or liquidation shall terminate.

   11. Restrictions on Transfer of Option Shares and Related Provisions.
   (a) Except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Section 11, Optionee shall not, voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, by
operation of law or otherwise, sell, transfer, assign, hypothecate, pledge or in any way alienate any Option Shares now or hereafter owned by
the Optionee or any right or interest therein (hereinafter, a “Transfer”) without the prior written consent of the Company’s Compensation
Committee, which the Compensation Committee may withhold in its sole discretion. Any attempt to consummate a Transfer in violation of this
Agreement shall be null and void.
   (b) Notwithstanding the restrictions contained in Section 11(a) above, (i) Optionee may Transfer Optionee’s Option Shares to the Company
or a designee of the Company, or (ii) Optionee may contribute Optionee’s Option Shares to a trust formed solely for the benefit of Optionee
and/or Optionee’s immediate family, or (iii) upon the death of Optionee, Optionee’s Option Shares may be transferred to Optionee’s estate,
personal representative or heirs by will or the laws of descent and distribution; provided, however, that as a condition to any transfer under
clause (i), (ii) or (iii) above, the transferee shall hold the Option Shares subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the transferee
shall execute and deliver to the Company an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the Company agreeing to be bound by the terms
and conditions of this Agreement.
    (c) The Company shall have the option (the “Repurchase Option”) exercisable at any time after six (6) months and one (1) day after the date
of termination of Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company for any reason, including, but not limited to, termination with or
without cause, death, permanent disability or voluntary termination, to repurchase all or any portion of the Option Shares held by Optionee (or
by a permitted transferee or Optionee’s estate or legal representative, if applicable). If the Company elects to exercise the Repurchase Option in
whole or in part, it shall give written notice of such election (the “Repurchase Notice”) to Optionee (or permitted transferee or Optionee’s
estate or legal representative, if applicable). The Company shall pay to Optionee (or permitted transferee or

                                                                          5
Optionee’s estate or legal representative, if applicable) in cash the “fair market value” of the Option Shares being purchased (determined as
provided below) within thirty (30) days after the later of: (i) the date of the Repurchase Notice, or (ii) the final determination of fair market
value. Optionee agrees to execute (and directs Optionee’s permitted transferee or estate or legal representative to execute, if applicable) such
documents and instruments as are reasonably necessary to effectuate such purchase. The Company may exercise the Repurchase Option as
many times as the Company may decide. For purposes hereof, “fair market value” of the Option Shares shall be determined as of the last day of
the Company’s fiscal quarter ended immediately preceding the date of the Repurchase Notice and means (i) the average closing price of a share
of Common Stock of the Company on the principal exchange on which such shares are then trading, if any (or as reported on any composite
index which includes such principal exchange), on the ten most recent trading days immediately prior to such date, or (ii) if such shares are not
traded on an exchange but are quoted on NASDAQ or a successor quotation system, the average mean between the closing representative bid
and asked prices for such shares on the ten most recent trading days immediately prior to such date as reported by NASDAQ or such successor
quotation system; or (iii) in the event that clauses (i) and (ii) above are inapplicable, the “fair market value” shall be determined in good faith
by the Board of Directors of the Company.
   (d) Anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, the Option Shares with respect to which the Company’s
Repurchase Option has been exercised shall be deemed to have been repurchased by the Company effective as of the date of exercise of such
option and such Option Shares shall be deemed to be canceled, retired and no longer issued or outstanding effective as of such date without
further act of the parties.
   (e) All Option Shares now or hereafter owned by Optionee shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. All
certificates representing such Option Shares shall contain legends to the following effect:
         ANY SALE, TRANSFER, PLEDGE, ASSIGNMENT OR ENCUMBRANCE OF THIS SECURITY IS SUBJECT TO THE
         PROVISIONS OF A STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CORPORATION AND THE STOCKHOLDER,
         DATED AS OF JUNE 1, 2006, A COPY OF WHICH IS ON FILE WITH THE SECRETARY OF THE CORPORATION.

         THE OFFER AND SALE OF THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN
         QUALIFIED OR REGISTERED UNDER ANY STATE OR FEDERAL SECURITIES LAWS. SUCH SECURITIES HAVE
         BEEN ACQUIRED FOR INVESTMENT AND MAY NOT BE OFFERED FOR SALE, SOLD, DELIVERED AFTER SALE,
         TRANSFERRED, PLEDGED OR HYPOTHECATED IN THE ABSENCE OF EITHER QUALIFICATION AND
         REGISTRATION UNDER STATE AND FEDERAL SECURITIES LAWS OR AN OPINION OF COUNSEL
         SATISFACTORY TO THE ISSUER THAT SUCH QUALIFICATION AND REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED.
   (f) The provisions of Sections 11(a)through 11(d) shall terminate effective upon the consummation an underwritten public offering of shares
of Stock by the Company that

                                                                         6
results in such shares being listed for trading on a national securities exchange or being authorized for trading on the NASDAQ National
Market System.

   12. Representations.
  (a) By executing this Stock Option Agreement, Optionee represents and warrants to the Company that Optionee is acquiring the Options for
Optionee’s own account, for investment purposes only and not with the intent of distributing, transferring or selling all or any part of the
Options.
   (b) In connection with the exercise of any portion of the Options, Optionee represents and warrants to the Company as of the date of such
exercise as follows:
       (i) Optionee is acquiring the Stock for Optionee’s own account, for investment purposes only and not with the intent of distributing,
transferring or selling all or any part thereof in violation of applicable securities laws.
      (ii) Optionee acknowledges that the Stock has not been registered under any Federal or state securities laws and is being issued pursuant
to one or more exemptions from the registration and qualification requirements of such securities laws.
      (iii) Optionee acknowledges that the Company is under no obligation to register or qualify the Stock and that the Stock may not be sold
unless it is so registered and qualified or an exemption from registration and qualification is available.

   13. Lock Up In Connection with Public Offering.
   (a) In order to induce the underwriters that may participate in a public offering of the Company’s equity securities to continue their efforts in
connection with such a public offering, the Optionee, during the period commencing 30 days prior to and ending 180 days after the effective
date of any underwritten public offering of the Company’s equity securities (except as part of such underwritten registration):
       (i) agrees not to (x) offer, pledge, sell, contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option or contract to sell,
grant any option, right or warrant to purchase, or otherwise transfer or dispose of, directly or indirectly, any Stock or any securities convertible
into or exercisable or exchangeable for Stock (including, without limitation, Stock or securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable
for Stock which may be deemed to be beneficially owned by the undersigned in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and
Exchange Commission) or (y) enter into any swap or other arrangement that transfers all or a portion of the economic consequences associated

   And any notice to the Optionee shall be addressed to the Optionee at the current address shown on the records of the Company.
   Any notice shall be deemed to be duly given if and when properly addressed and posted by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid.
     15. Income Tax Consequences. Optionee acknowledges, represents, and warrants that the Company has made no representations
whatsoever to Optionee concerning the specific Federal and/or state income tax and alternative minimum tax consequences to Optionee of the
Options granted hereunder or the exercise thereof, and Optionee shall be responsible for consulting with Optionee’s personal tax advisor
regarding such matters. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Optionee acknowledges that pursuant to Code Section 409A, an option
that is granted with a per share exercise price that is determined by the Internal Revenue

                                                                          8
Service (the “IRS”) to be less than the fair market value of a share of Stock on the date of grant (a “discount option”) may be considered
“deferred compensation.” An option that is a “discount option” may result in (i) income recognition by the Optionee prior to the exercise of the
option, (ii) an additional twenty percent (20%) tax payable by Optionee, and (iii) potential penalty and interest charges payable by Optionee.
Optionee acknowledges that the Company cannot and has not guaranteed that in the event of an examination the IRS will agree that the per
share exercise price of the Stock that is subject to this Option equals or exceeds the fair market value of a share of Stock on the date of grant.
Optionee agrees that if the IRS determines that the Option was granted with a per share exercise price that was less than the fair market value of
a share of Stock on the date of grant, Optionee will be solely responsible for all consequences to Optionee related to such a determination.
    16. Withholding Taxes. Whenever the Company issues or transfers shares of Stock hereunder, the Company shall have the right to require
the Optionee to remit to the Company an amount sufficient to satisfy any Federal, state, and/or local withholding tax requirements prior to the
delivery of any certificate or certificates for such shares. Alternatively, the Company may (but shall not be obligated to) issue or transfer such
shares of Stock net of the number of shares sufficient to satisfy the withholding tax requirements. For withholding tax purposes, the shares of
Stock shall be valued on the date the withholding obligation is incurred.
    17. Governing Law. The validity, construction, interpretation, and effect of this Agreement shall exclusively be governed by and
determined in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware (without regard to conflicts of law principles), except to the extent preempted
by Federal law, which shall to such extent govern.
   IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company and Optionee have executed this Agreement effective as of the date first set forth above.

                                                       STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT
   THIS STOCK OPTION AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) is entered into effective as of June 16, 2005 by and between K12 INC ., a Delaware
corporation (the “Company”), and RICHARD RASMUS (the “Optionee”).


                                                                    RECITALS
   WHEREAS, the Company desires to grant to the Optionee stock options to purchase shares of Common Stock of the Company to motivate
the Optionee to increase value for the Company’s stockholders.
   NOW THEREFORE, the parties agree as follows:
     1. Grant of Stock Options. Subject to the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth, the Company, with the approval and at the direction
of the Company’s Compensation Committee, hereby grants to the Optionee an option to purchase up to Eight Hundred Thousand (800,000)
shares of Common Stock of the Company (the “Stock”) at an option exercise price of One Dollar and Thirty Four Cents ($1.34) per share (the
“Options”). The shares of Stock purchasable upon exercise of the Options are hereinafter sometimes collectively referred to as the “Option
Shares.” The Options are not intended to be, and shall not be treated as, incentive stock options (as such term is defined under Section 422 of
the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”)). Optionee understands and acknowledges that the Company is granting the
Options hereunder outside of, and not as a part of, the K12 Inc. Amended and Restated Stock Option Plan. The Company shall reserve
sufficient shares of Stock from its authorized but unissued and not outstanding shares of Stock as set forth in its Certificate of Incorporation, for
purposes of issuing Option Shares to the Optionee upon the exercise of the Options in accordance with the terms set forth herein.
    2. Fully Vested Options. The Options are fully vested and immediately exercisable, subject to the other terms of this Agreement.
    3. Termination of Options.
   (a) Subject to earlier termination as provided in the other provisions of this Agreement, the Options and all rights hereunder with respect
thereto, to the extent such rights shall not have been exercised, shall terminate and become null and void on September 21, 2010 (the “Option
Term”).
   (b) Upon termination of Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company by reason of Optionee’s death, the unexercised Options
held by Optionee may be exercised by Optionee’s estate, provided that such exercise occurs prior to the earlier of: (i) three hundred sixty five
(365) days after the date of Optionee’s death, or (ii)
the expiration of the Option Term. The Options shall terminate at the end of the earliest of the periods specified in clauses (i) and (ii) of the
immediately preceding sentence.
    (c) Upon termination of Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company by reason of “permanent disability” (as determined by
the Board of Directors of the Company, or if Optionee has an employment or engagement agreement with the Company, then as determined
pursuant to the applicable provisions of said agreement, if any), the unexercised Options held by Optionee may be exercised by Optionee,
provided that such exercise occurs prior to the earlier of: (i) three hundred sixty five (365) days after the date of Optionee’s termination, or
(ii) the expiration of the Option Term. The Options shall terminate at the end of the earliest of the periods specified in clauses (i) and (ii) of the
immediately preceding sentence.
   (d) Upon Optionee’s termination of employment or engagement with the Company either by resignation (excluding a resignation resulting
from the Company’s material breach of Optionee’s employment agreement) or upon termination of Optionee’s employment or engagement
with the Company for “cause” (as that term is defined in Optionee’s employment agreement), all Options shall terminate on the date of
Optionee’s termination.
    (e) If Optionee’s employment or engagement with the Company terminates for any reason other than as described in paragraphs (b), (c) or
(d) of this Section 3, then the unexercised Options held by Optionee may be exercised by Optionee, provided that such exercise occurs prior to
the earlier of: (i) ninety (90) days after the date of Optionee’s termination, or (ii) the expiration of the Option Term. The Options shall terminate
at the end of the earliest of the periods specified in clauses (i) and (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence.

4. Exercise of Options.
   (a) The Optionee may exercise the Options with respect to all or any part of the number of Option Shares then exercisable hereunder from
time to time by giving the Chief Financial Officer of the Company written notice of exercise. Each such notice of exercise shall specify the
number of Option Shares as to which the Options are to be exercised and the date of exercise thereof, which date shall be at least five days (but
not more than fifteen days) after the giving of such notice unless an earlier time shall have been mutually agreed upon by Optionee and the
Company.
   (b) Full payment of the option price for the Option Shares being purchased by the Optionee shall be made by the Optionee in cash (in U.S.
dollars) on or prior to the date of exercise specified in the notice of exercise.
   (c) The Company shall cause to be delivered to the Optionee a certificate or certificates for the Option Shares then being purchased (out of
theretofore unissued Stock or reacquired Stock, as the Company may elect) as soon as is reasonably

                                                                           2
practicable after the full payment for such Option Shares and satisfaction of all other conditions to exercise set forth in this Agreement.
  (d) If the Optionee fails to pay for any of the Option Shares specified in a notice of exercise or fails to accept delivery thereof, the
Optionee’s right to purchase such Option Shares shall terminate.
    (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Optionee’s right to exercise Options and be issued Option Shares is subject
to the conditions set forth in this Section 4(e) in addition to any other conditions set forth elsewhere in this Agreement. The Optionee may not
exercise any Options in whole or in part or be issued any Option Shares unless (i) the transaction is in compliance with all applicable state and
Federal securities laws, (ii) the transaction is exempt from the qualification and registration requirements of applicable state and Federal
securities laws, and (iii) the Company and the Optionee comply with any requirements applicable to the transaction, if any, that are contained
in any credit or loan agreement to which the Company is a party. In addition, the obligation of the Company to deliver Stock shall be subject to
the condition that if at any time the Company shall determine that the listing, registration, or qualification of the Options or the Option Shares
upon any securities exchange or under any state or Federal law, or the consent or approval of any governmental regulatory body, is necessary
as a condition of, or in connection with, the Options or the issuance or purchase of Stock thereunder, the Options may not be exercised in whole
or in part unless such listing, registration, qualification, consent, or approval shall have been effected or obtained free of any conditions not
acceptable to the Board of Directors of the Company.
    5. Adjustment of and Changes in Stock of the Company. In the event of any change in the outstanding shares of Stock by reason of a
stock dividend, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, split-up, combination, exchange of shares, or the like, the Company’s Compensation
Committee shall appropriately adjust the number and kind of shares subject to the Options and the option price.
     6. No Rights of Stockholders. Neither the Optionee nor any personal representative shall be, or shall have any of the rights and privileges
of, a stockholder of the Company with respect to any shares of Stock purchasable or issuable upon the exercise of the Options, in whole or in
part, prior to the date certificates for shares of Stock are issued to the Optionee, which certificates shall be issued without unreasonable delay.
     7. Non-Transferability of Options. During the Optionee’s lifetime, the Options hereunder shall be exercisable only by the Optionee or
any guardian or legal representative of the Optionee, and the Options shall not be transferable except, in case of the death of the Optionee, by
will or the laws of descent and distribution, nor shall the Options be subject to attachment, execution, or other similar process. In the event of
(a) any attempt by the Optionee to alienate, assign, pledge, hypothecate, or otherwise dispose of the Options, except as provided for herein, or
(b) the levy of any attachment,

                                                                          3
execution, or similar process upon the rights or interest hereby conferred, the Company may terminate the Options by notice to the Optionee
and they shall thereupon become null and void.
    8. Employment/Engagement Not Affected. Neither the granting of the Options nor exercise thereof shall be construed as granting to the
Optionee any right with respect to continuance of employment or engagement with the Company or affect any right which the Company may
have to terminate the employment or engagement of Optionee.
    9. Amendment of Options. The Options may be amended by the Company’s Compensation Committee at anytime (i) if the Compensation
Committee determines, in its reasonable discretion, that amendment is necessary or advisable in the light of any addition to or change in the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or in the regulations issued thereunder, or any federal or state securities law or other law or
regulation, which change occurs after the date of grant of an Option and by its terms applies to the Option, or (ii) other than in the
circumstances described in clause (i), with the consent of the Optionee.
     10. Sale, Merger, Consolidation and Liquidation of the Company. In the event of any of the following (a “Termination Event”): (i) a
sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the Company, or (ii) a sale of all of the outstanding shares of stock of the Company, or (iii) a
merger or consolidation in which the Company is not the surviving corporation, or (iv) a merger or consolidation in which the Company is the
surviving corporation but the shares of the Company’s Stock outstanding immediately prior to the merger or consolidation are converted into
other property, whether in the form of securities, cash or otherwise, then, if the surviving entity or purchaser does not assume the Options
issued hereunder, all Options which are not exercised prior to the closing of the applicable Termination Event shall terminate upon the closing
of the applicable Termination Event. In the event of a dissolution or liquidation of the Company, all Options issued hereunder which are not
exercised prior to completion of such dissolution or liquidation shall terminate. The Company shall give Optionee reasonable prior written
notice of any termination of Options pursuant to this Section 10.

11. Restrictions on Transfer of Option Shares and Related Provisions.
   (a) Except as otherwise expressly set forth in Section ll(b) below, Optionee shall not, voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, by
operation of law or otherwise, sell, transfer, assign, hypothecate, pledge or in any way alienate any Option Shares now or hereafter owned by
the Optionee or any right or interest therein (hereinafter, a “Transfer”) without the prior written consent of the Company’s Compensation
Committee, which the Compensation Committee may withhold in its sole discretion. Any attempt to consummate a Transfer in violation of this
Agreement shall be null and void.

                                                                         4
   (b) Notwithstanding the restrictions contained in Section 11 (a) above, (i) Optionee may Transfer Optionee’s Option Shares to the Company
or a designee of the Company, or (ii) Optionee may contribute Optionee’s Option Shares to a trust formed solely for the benefit of Optionee
and/or Optionee’s immediate family, or (iii) upon the death of Optionee, Optionee’s Option Shares may be transferred to Optionee’s estate,
personal representative or heirs by will or the laws of descent and distribution; provided, however, that as a condition to any transfer under
clause (i), (ii) or (iii) above, the transferee(s) shall hold the Option Shares subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the
transferee(s) shall execute and deliver to the Company an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the Company agreeing to be bound
by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
   (c) All Option Shares now or hereafter owned by Optionee shall be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. All
certificates representing such Option Shares shall contain legends to the following effect:
         ANY SALE, TRANSFER, PLEDGE, ASSIGNMENT OR ENCUMBRANCE OF THIS SECURITY IS SUBJECT TO THE
