Parent's Guide to Schoology

  • Schoology is what’s known as a Learning Management System. Our teachers use this LMS to present course materials, collect assignments, moderate discussions, conduct assessments and help build an online community of digital learners.

    Schoology’s parent access features allow you to engage in your child’s education with a set of convenient digital tools. You’ll be able to monitor your student’s assignments, keep track of missing work and view grades. You can also take advantage of Schoology’s notification system to set up alerts for upcoming assignments and posted grades.

    How Do I Sign Up?

    1. Contact your child’s teacher for a parent access code that attaches your accounts (Tip: you only need one teacher’s code to access your child’s entire schedule)
    2. Create an account at, and use your parent access code (Need help?)
    3. If you already have a parent account in Schoology for one child, you can add additional children to your account (Need help?)
    4. If you are having difficulties contact for assistance with creating a parent account in Schoology.
