Starting on Monday 8/30, your students are going to see some additional help sessions specific to each course they are enrolled in Stride!

  • These sessions will run Monday - Thursday and will be subject specific.
  • Certified instructors will be hosting these sessions (although they will not be their Stride teachers)
  • These links will be embedded into each course that students have so students can click on whichever sessions they need help with. Make sure your student look for those sessions in Stride learning platform.
  • All sessions will be recorded so if they miss one that they need, they can always listen to it later
  • Their Stride teachers will be sending announcements out on this so look for those announcements in your Stride account.


If you have any questions or concerns about your child's academic program and your role as the Learning Coach, please reach out to your child's Stride teacher(s).
