Trusting Connections continues in their commitment to support families when they need it the most through the development of a new Private Educator Service which will be available for homeschooling or any hybrid approach to distance learning for the 2020-2021 school year.
As the nation continues to struggle with the long-term implications of the COVID-19 crisis and work-life balance forces unprecedented challenges, parents everywhere are increasingly concerned about their options for childcare and sending their children back to a brick-and-mortar school this fall.
Millions of exhausted parents spent the last month wading through school district surveys and updates to weigh the potential ‘safe path back to school’ options. Many parents cannot quit their paying jobs nor do they have the skillset to properly home educate but they face real concerns about either the safety or their alignment with the required protocols of sending their children back on an adjusted school schedule. Couple these with the concerns of health, physical and mental well-being and the increasing data that reports distance learning did not work for many students this spring and parents everywhere are really struggling.
Parents who perhaps never considered home schooling have begun looking into it as a viable option. Many are considering a Pandemic pod or MicroSchool option in combination with a small number of other families, to share the teaching load and cost as well as to let their children interact with others.
“We know that parents are headed into the busy fall season already feeling stressed out,” said Trusting Connections Co-Founder, Rosalind Prather. “The duality of legitimate needs and concerns for family and societal well-being are in such opposition at the moment that it can be tempting to feel hopeless. We feel a responsibility to partner with parents and offer tactical and timely advice and services as they navigate this time of great instability and uncertainty,” Prather concluded.
Families considering homeschooling their children this fall or who are interested in support with in-home instruction can schedule part-time or occasional help from one of Trusting Connections’ certified teachers through their flex or placement services to hire a Private Educator.
