The stock of K12 Inc. took a steep plunge last week following its release of more modest revenue and student-enrollment projections than analysts had anticipated.

It estimated average enrollment at schools it manages at 128,000 students for the quarter, up nearly 6 percent from the previous year, yet "below management's expectations."

Expected revenues for the Herndon, Va.-based company, which operates schools in more than 30 states, also disappointed analysts.

Its stock price plummeted from more than $29 a share to about $19.
