Tech Help Resources

SMCPS has created a Schoology Site which includes FAQs & Tech Help menus. If you are experiencing technical difficulties or have questions about Schoology, you may find this resource helpful.

Accessing On-Line Learning/Schoology: Step-by-step instructions with visuals and a screencast video

You may also contact us at school. We will help solve your problem or connect you with someone who can.

The thought of having to learn so many new things might be overwhelming. Our teachers and staff will be working to instruct, model, and support students in learning how to navigate Schoology. Neither you nor your child will be expected to know these things on Day 1! We appreciate your interest and support, we encourage you to learn alongside your student, and we pledge to work together to launch this virtual start to the 2020-21 school year.
