Online education can strengthen family ties and provide the individual attention children need to thrive, but getting started can be a big change for parents. That's why Connections Academy offers a robust assortment of orientation activities and resources. Our onboarding program helps ensure that every family receives the support and tools they need to effectively transition to online school.
Our brief online orientation program is designed to familiarize new Connections Academy families with how virtual school works. Recorded training sessions for both parents and students are available at your convenience, 24/7.
Learning Coach Success Series Onboarding Sessions
Newly enrolled parents can learn more about being Learning Coaches, absorb parent-tested tips for daily routines and organization, and learn all about Connexus®, our learning platform. Session titles include Getting Ready for the First Day; First Days: What to Expect; and Beyond the First Days. New parents can also ask questions and get answers!
Resources for New Families
Learning Coach Central, a website containing useful resources for all Learning Coaches, offers a wealth of resources and materials to familiarize you with our online school program and how it works. You’ll also find links to the Learning Coach Success Series session schedules, our Clubs and Activities program, and our College and Career program.
Support When It's Needed
Families have access to our searchable online help system, available 24/7. The Learning Coach can also call a toll-free number to speak with a Connections Academy technical support representative for assistance with installation and troubleshooting. And, naturally, support and encouragement is available from your child's teacher and other school staff.
