Handbook » Roles


Learning Coach: The Learning Coach is the designated adult who has the primary responsibility of being actively involved in all school related work and activities. A parent or guardian may serve as a Learning Coach or assign this role to another trusted adult. In all cases, the parent /guardian is ultimately responsible for ensuring adherence to school policies. The Learning Coach should:
  • Actively monitor, assist and motivate the student daily.
  • Communicate regularly with the student’s teachers and Community Family Advisor (CFA)
  • Ensure the student is engaged and follows a weekly schedule that includes attending live class and completing weekly assignments per program requirements.
A student that is a legal adult may serve as their own Learning Coach.
Community Family Advisors (CFA): Community Family Advisors are your first point of contact. Each family is assigned one Community Family Advisor. They assist in getting students started and staying on track. Community Family Advisors can answer general questions or help connect you with the correct person if you aren’t sure who to contact. They will also host community building events online and at locations around the state.
Course Teachers: Courses teachers are responsible for providing instruction in live classes (Class Connect), reviewing student work and providing feedback. Students may have a different teacher for each course. Questions about courses or course content should be directed to the teacher of that course.
