With school doors closed since March, there's still a lot of uncertainty on how to move forward, leaving parents having to weigh their options.

"Now is a very stressful time for parents as well as students," said learning coach Bridget Ryan.

A group of educators is making sure students get the help they need creating Learning Coach as a resource.

"We're there to remediate, and we're there to help with unfinished learning. We were pulled out in March," said Ryan.

As more parents explore the option of homeschooling their children, educators say it's a full-time commitment that may require some assistance.

"They have to work still. If they're working from home, they have to home school and work as well. If there are multiple kids in the home, they could be on various curriculums and various grade levels," said Ryan.

The Learning Coach staff is ready to assist with routines and assignments ranging from kindergarten to high school.

"Homeschooling, you get a program, but if you want it to count for credit, you have to make sure you're doing the appropriate curriculum," said Ryan.

The request for a learning coach can be weekly or hourly, depending on the individual needs.

"We'll be set up where we can go in face to face or even tap into the lesson and go back over into different things with them and just make sure all their assignments are completed the right way," said Ryan.
