Learning Coach Community

Join thousands of Learning Coaches in the National LC Community within the K12 App. This virtual village has been built to help Learning Coaches:

  • Connect with one another
  • Enjoy interactive discussions
  • Receive and share advice, ideas and encouragement

One of the most popular topics in the National Community is LCs connecting their students – for example, LCs share their students interests and gaming handles so the students can make friends.

Download the K12 App, log in using your Learning Coach credentials, and join the National K12 Learning Coach community and if your school has a school-specific community you’ll have access to that as well.
