Schoology for Parents

  • Parents are encouraged to sign up for a Schoology parent account. This account will allow for a single sign-on that can connect you to all of your children's Schoology accounts. With your parent account, you will be able to monitor assignments and grades as well as engage in communication between your children's teachers. Schoology will allow you to stay engaged and informed about you children's progress in school.

    Note: A parent account can be created once you receive an access code via email. (Parents of middle and high school students will receive one access code that connects to all classes and teachers on a student's schedule.) Parents receive access codes between the start of school and Back to School Night.
