Your Role in Online High School

For Nevada Connections Academy children in grades 9-12, Learning Coaches give their children plenty of freedom to work independently and gain the resilience they’ll need to succeed in adulthood. As your child’s Learning Coach, you should expect to:

  • Spend 1 to 2 hours a day overseeing schoolwork
  • Double-check to make sure your child is completing their assignments
  • Connect your child to their teacher when needed
  • Attend regular teacher conferences

Connecting on the Local Level

Whether you live in one of the many small towns or big cities of Nevada, your local community is a part of who you are. And that makes it a part of who we are too. All across the state, our community coordinators, Learning Coaches and students come together to volunteer and participate in community events. It’s a great way to be a part of your local community and your online school community.

Parents, in particular, perform a very important role, as they often play the role of the Learning Coach, keeping the student on track and regularly communicating with teachers.
