Learners enrolled in our Parent-coach program receive the full Prisma experience, but rather than having a Prisma coach that they meet with one-on-one and that provides them with feedback on their projects and writing and math missions, the parent is the primary coach for the child. We provide significant support to the parent to ensure they are well equipped to coach and give feedback to their child.
Learners enrolled in this program still participate in all our workshops, standups, Expo days, clubs and learner events. Like all our learners they are part of a close knit cohort of other learners that they meet with daily. They also get full access to our curriculum—our missions, projects and journeys, our MAP and writing assessment and, like all learners, they develop a Prisma Portfolio and receive a Prisma transcript. Also included in this program is a support coach who meets regularly with our parent-coaches and looks over the feedback they are providing to ensure that their child is on track and is meeting or exceeding expectations.
This program is open to learners whose parents:
We will assign you a support coach (who is a highly experienced educator) who will work with your family. This coach will:
Additionally, our math coach will also provide weekly office hours for parent-as-coach families who have questions regarding math.
We provide two options for Parent-as-coach families:
Self-directed math (no additional charge)
We will provide you with access to the adaptive learning apps that Prisma uses for math, daily goals for your child based on their ability, in-app instructional videos to help your child learn key concepts and detailed in-app explanations for problems that your child gets wrong. You’ll also have access to our project-based performance tasks and summative assessments that help to gauge your child’s understanding of key concepts (including rubrics to help you assess your child) as well as weekly office hours (optional) with our math coach.
Full Prisma math coaching (additional annual charge: $1,500)
If you opt for the full Prisma math option you’ll get access to all of the above plus twice weekly small group math tutoring with our highly qualified math coach. Our math coach will also own the review of and feedback on your child’s math work.
