What’s my role as a parent?

As Learning Coach, you’ll be able to take an active and vital role in your child’s education. Plan to:

  • Provide academic support, motivation, and guidance throughout the school year
  • Ensure your child is on track with assignments and coursework
  • Communicate with teachers 
  • Report daily attendance 

If you or your child’s legal guardian are unable to fill this role, you can choose a family member, friend, or another trusted adult to be the Learning Coach.
