K12 Announces Chief Financial Officer Leaving
K12 (NYSE: LRN) announced today that Harry T. Hawks, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, has informed the Board of his plans to leave the Company before the end of the fiscal year. Mr. Hawks has agreed to continue in his current role and beyond, as a consultant, to ensure a successful transition for his successor.

Mr. Hawks stated, “It has been my great honor to support the transformational mission of K12 and the children it serves. It has been extremely rewarding to work with the men and women of K12 who tackle today's compelling challenges in education with passion, creativity and energy. My colleagues on the Finance team amazed me every day with their determination, skill and dedication to purpose.”
“I particularly want to recognize and thank the distinguished members of our Board for their leadership, vision and friendship. I am fully committed to assisting the Company in any way I can to ensure a smooth transition.”
Nate Davis, Executive Chairman of the Board, added, “Harry's contributions are far too numerous to list, but in three years he has evolved the finance and accounting functions at K12 and positioned the department to function at the high-level needed to support our future growth. We will certainly miss Harry and wish him all the best in the future.”
