K12 Inc. Announces End of Lawsuit in Wisconsin

May 19, 2008

HERNDON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 19, 2008--K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN) is announcing that a judgment has been entered by the Circuit Court of Ozaukee County in Wisconsin, bringing to a close a lawsuit brought by the Wisconsin Education Association against the Northern Ozaukee School District and K12 Inc. for operating the Wisconsin Virtual Academy (WIVA). In an order filed May 6, 2008, the Court stated that the "parties and the Court agree that the recent enactment of Act 222 obviates the need for injunctive relief from this Court." The judgment ensures the continued lawful operation and funding of WIVA.

Ron Packard, CEO and Founder of K12 Inc., said, "K12 is grateful that this litigation is now over and that WIVA's resources can be devoted to its teachers and students, rather than the expense of defending this academically successful school."
