What Is Schoology?
Teachers use Schoology to post their classroom materials online; provide a safe forum for students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects; and to assign and collect homework electronically. It helps students stay organized and it keeps the class connected. A Schoology Parent Account gives you access to: ● The classes your child is enrolled in. ● Your child’s upcoming assignments. ● School and class announcements. Schoology makes it easy for parents to stay involved in their children’s education.
