High School Lifeline

Every new parent has questions that they wish they could ask an experienced K12 parent. Lifeline is your opportunity to do just that.

Do you have a question about working with your student, using the curriculum, setting up your school space, time management, using the Online School or High School platform, student motivation, or just getting through your day? Log in and talk to a real parent who is there just for you! You're not alone! If we don't have the answer, we can help you find out where to look!

This is not a workshop or presentation. This is drop in question/answer space staffed by an experienced K12 parent.
