What is Schoology?

Schoology is the District's new Learning Management System (LMS). This is the tool for communicating with students and families through teacher pages, posting assignments and information for students, and accepting student assignments, among many other things. Students can access Schoology from any computer or mobile device with Internet access.

What is the difference between Schoology, Source, and the District/School website?

Schoology is our Learning Management System, where teachers can post course content, provide resources for students, and review assignments. The Source is where parents/guardians, and students go to see their current schedule, assessment scores, attendance, library information and secondary student grades. The District/School website is our externally-facing web presence for people interested in learning more about our schools and programs.

I want to collaborate with other teachers using groups. What should I do?

The District is working on a simple process that teachers can use to request groups. This should be available in early October.

Can I add a co-teacher to my course?

Teachers will have the first 2 weeks of school to add co-teachers to their courses. Please refer to the How to Add a Co-teacher QRD for instructions on how to do so.

I can no longer create a course. Why is that?

With the PowerSchool sync in place, your scheduled courses are automatically assigned to your account to allow you to start building your courses immediately. The "Create Course" ability was temporary for training purposes until teacher courses from PowerSchool were brought over.

Can volunteers access Schoology?

Since Schoology contains student information, volunteers do not have access to Schoology.
