There is a true connection that can be made with students online. It’s not the same as in a traditional school where you see students every day—but it can be just as deep a connection with phone calls and small LiveLesson® sessions. Students who are receptive to speaking on the phone engage in some amazing conversations. What’s great is that you can individualize the conversation specifically for the interests of that student. It’s also rewarding to have a student succeed when all odds are against them.
Inspire does a great job communicating with parents, students, and the community, and we’re always looking for ways to increase our engagement. All staff conduct a welcome call to students and families before school starts, which helps start building relationships. Throughout the year, we’re in constant communication with students and families and offer a wide variety of communication methods. When circumstances allow, we hold field trips and events across the state of Idaho to meet our students in person and gather as a community.
