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.
