A crucial role at Connections Academy® is the Learning Coach, who is a parent or caretaker that builds the weekly school schedule, tracks attendance, communicates with teachers, and supports their student while they complete their schoolwork.
As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher. You know them best and understand what works and what doesn’t to keep them motivated and engaged with learning. Whatever your situation is, you may be wondering how parents can help with online learning and maintain their role as mentor and educational coach while balancing all of their other obligations—including a full-time job.
If it sounds like it may be too much as you think about balancing those tasks with your work responsibilities, Connections Academy staff and teachers—along with our community of parents—offer many tips, tricks, tools, and support to help you find success as a Learning Coach no matter how busy your schedule is.
