Parental Involvement at Alabama Connections Academy

Alabama Connections Academy (ALCA) promotes regular parental involvement in our virtual school program. When a parent (or other trusted adult) focuses on daily engagement in learning activities with a child, it teaches that education is a high priority—and also helps ensure that child’s success.

Parental involvement is key in online public school, and the benefits to your child could include improved test scores, higher grades, and better graduation rates. These benefits can also lead to increased enrollment for postsecondary education.

At ALCA, the trusted adult who provides support for online education in the home is called a Learning Coach.
