What’s my role as a parent?

You’ll play an active and important role as your child’s Learning Coach. Plan time each day to:

  • Provide academic support, motivation, and guidance
  • 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.
