The Role of Parental Involvement

One of the hallmarks of the Indiana Connections Career Academy (INCC) virtual school program is parental involvement. A parent’s (or other trusted adult’s) daily engagement in learning activities shows students that education is a top priority and helps ensure their success. There are many benefits to this level of involvement in education, such as improved grades and test scores, higher graduation rates, and greater enrollment in postsecondary education. At INCC, the person who supports the student’s education in the home is called a Learning Coach.
