Pursuant to the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act, schools provide homeless students access to education and other academic services they need so they are not disadvantaged due to their lack of a fixed, regular residence.
The term ‘homeless children and youths’ means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence; and includes:
(i) children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals;
(ii) children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings;
(iii) children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and
(iv) migratory children who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this subtitle because the children are living in circumstances described above
At Anima Mundi, a Learning Coach is the adult responsible for providing support, motivation, and guidance to their student throughout the school year. Here are the top five things you should know about this important role. A Learning Coach is typically a student's parent or legal guardian, but can be another family member, friend, or trusted adult. What’s most important is that the Learning Coach be available and committed to supporting their student each school day. Learning Coaches help online school work. For students in kindergarten through second grade, a school day is a blend of online lessons and offline learning, such as reading, skills practice, and hands-on projects. School days also typically include live online classes with certified teachers. Learning Coaches of students in kindergarten, first, and second grade get to share in their student's successes and struggles, sparking their joy of learning.
Learning Coaches in the younger grades are actively involved each school day as students begin learning how to read and use computers. From tracking attendance to helping students gather materials, to getting them logged in to their classes on time, Learning Coaches play a crucial role in keeping students on pace and progressing in their courses. They help students stay focused and engaged during live, teacher-led class time. Learning Coaches also lead offline lessons, helping students develop foundational skills in reading and writing.On average, a Learning Coach will spend 4 to 6 hours per day working with a kindergartener, first-, or second-grader. Some may need to spend more time, depending on their child's needs and level of independence. At this early stage, it's critical for the Learning Coach to be by the student's side throughout the school day.
But an online school day doesn't have to be ruled by the bell. Learning Coaches should build in healthy breaks throughout the day and find ways for students to be social outside of their school experience. Because we know and value the work our Learning Coaches put in, we supply them with support at many levels. Learning Coaches regularly communicate with their student’s teachers and school staff. Being a Learning Coach is a wonderful way to make a real difference in a child’s life. It's also a key part of the Anima Mundi community. We’re grateful for those who take on this role and empower their students to get the personalized education they deserve.
