Helping Learning Coaches with all things #LearningCoachLife


We are so happy to have you as members of the National Learning Coach community. This community includes Learning Coaches from across the United States - your students attend over 60+ Stride K12-powered schools. This newsletter is designed to serve up helpful content, resources, and ways for you to connect with other Learning Coaches. We are committed to helping you be successful in your important role as a Learning Coach.

Want to Connect with other Learning Coaches? #LearningCoachLife

Join thousands of Learning Coaches in the National Learning Coach Community. 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 student's interests and gaming handles so the students can make friends.

You can find the Learning Coach Communities in the Online School or the K12 App. Log in using your Learning Coach credentials, click the Community button, and join the K12 National Learning Coach Community. If your school has a school-specific community you’ll have access to that as well.
