What to Expect
 

Giving Your Child a Learning Space They’ll Love

With online schooling, your child will have new opportunities to learn and grow. The better prepared your family is for online learning, the more your child can get out of it.

Your Role as Caregiver

Parents and caregivers at Pecos Connections Academy are their child’s Learning Coach. Being a Learning Coach gives you the chance to be a part of your child’s learning, celebrating their victories and lending a hand when they need extra help. The younger your child, the more you’ll want to be by their side. But no matter your child’s age, their teachers will be readily available to work and collaborate with you. And you’ll have plenty of resources to make sure you—and your child—stay on track for success.

Your Child’s Responsibilities

As an online student, your child will spend part of their day logged into their online classroom. Younger children spend less time on a screen than older students, but all students engage with dynamic lessons and are expected to complete assignments, quizzes, tests and class projects by certain deadlines. If your child needs help at any point along the way, they can quickly connect with their teachers or turn to you for guidance and support.
