Schoology Family Access (Parent Access)

Schoology

What is Schoology?
Schoology (pronounced "Skoo-lu-jee") is our Learning Management System that allows students to collaborate, communicate, and engage in learning. Teachers use Schoology to give classroom updates, post their classroom materials online, and provide a safe forum to students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects. With Schoology, teachers can engage in new ways.
Use the following links to access your Schoology account: Parents can view their children's activity within the Schoology platform. A Schoology Parent Account gives you access to:
  • The classes your child is enrolled
  • Your child's upcoming assignments
  • School and class announcements

**IMPORTANT - This is NOT the official grade book so please continue to use Skyward Family Access to view your student's grades."

Navigating the Parent Portal in Schoology
Once you log in to Schoology, you will land on your child's activity page. Having a parent account is actually like having two accounts:
1. Your personal account, with your own name and information;
2. Your Child Activity view. From here, you can view Schoology from your child's perspective, and see what he or she sees, and receive updates about his or her activity.
 To see the different accounts, click on the drop-down next to your child's name in the upper-right corner and then select the account you want to view.
