Learning Coaches at Connections Academy have a community of support. If you’re experiencing a challenging situation with your student, chances are another coach has as well. For example, while coaching your own child in high school, you could be wondering how to help them prepare post-graduation plans. Within the secure online learning platform, Learning Coaches can connect with other families to encourage each other and share their best ideas for online school success. In addition, some schools may have private Facebook pages where parents can reach out and arrange in-person meetups for fun and socialization.
Although first getting started with online school can be a challenge for parents, Learning Coaches, and students alike, it does get easier over time! With the support of a high-quality online school and teachers, most families adapt to the new way of learning in about a month. Even better, many parents say online school is very rewarding and draws the family closer together.
