Learning Coach Role

Enrollment in the virtual instruction program is a commitment by the student, family, and learning coach. Every student must be provided with adequate daily supervision and support by a responsible adult or learning coach. The learning coach’s active participation is essential to ensure the success of the virtual school student. The learning coach will establish the structure necessary for daily, focused participation in classes and will provide motivation and time management. The learning coach should also communicate with the teacher and administration to ensure the student has a positive and productive experience. The learning coach and/or parent/guardian will also be responsible for providing transportation to orientation sessions or other required/optional activities.

The learning coach must be available approximately five hours per day to monitor the student’s computer access, engage the student in educational activities, and provide support for the student with assignments that are submitted to the teacher. The learning coach should also encourage the student to participate in daily organized physical exercise experiences.
