If you have another Schoology Parent Account from another district you will need to either Delete That Account or Create a New Schoology Account with a different email address.

Schoology will NOT allow a parent account to be associated with more than one school district or a Schoology basic and enterprise account.

I have a student in another district. What do I do?

I’ve been using the Parent Portal to monitor my child’s progress in the past. How is Schoology different?

Schoology provides more detailed information on assignments, grades and class projects. Parents can review grades for individual assignments, review attendance, send private message teachers with questions, receive daily or weekly academic progress reports, among many other options.

Do I still need to use the Parent Portal?

Yes! The Parent Portal is still necessary for parents to use. Important information, such as emergency contact information, transportation information, lunch balances, library check-outs and final trimester grades will all be found in the Parent Portal.

How is Schoology used in the classroom?

Beginning the 2018-19 school year, all secondary schools will use Schoology for classroom learning purposes. Students can take tests, submit homework and interact with their classmates outside the walls of a traditional classroom (from home, the library or their favorite homework spot). Schoology is also used as a forum for communication between a student and teacher, and the parent and teacher.

What is a Schoology notification?

Notifications are daily or weekly opt-in messages that notify parents, via email or text, of their child’s academic progress. Parents will be notified about homework, graded tests and assignments, recent activity, upcoming tests and other due dates.

Can I use Schoology on a mobile device?

Yes! Schoology can be accessed on both Android and Apple mobile devices. Search for the Schoology app in GooglePlay or the App Store.
