“Through the Minnesota Online High School (MNOHS) Peer Leaders Program, experienced students will coach incoming 9th grade and transfer students to help them transition to online learning and connect to our school community. The Peer Leaders Program is a MNOHS Student Leadership Council school improvement project. Peer Leaders will commit to a full year of involvement, complete intensive training during the summer, and earn elective credit for fulfilling their commitments during the school year. These include connecting at least twice weekly with the students they are coaching, online small and large group meetings, and in-person social meetings and conferences.”
