The Role of Parental Involvement

One of the highlights of the Iowa Connections Academy (IACA) online school program is the opportunity parents (or a trusted adult) are given to play an important role in their student’s education. It’s been proven that the success of the student depends largely on the involvement of the parents—the more involved the parent, the more likely the child is to succeed. Just a few of the benefits of this high level of parental involvement are higher graduation rates and a greater chance of going on to postsecondary school, in addition to overall higher test scores and grades. At IACA, we value the parents of our students, which is why we’ve given them the honorable title of Learning Coach.
