Schoology

Dear Parent/Guardian,


You were given access to the Schoology Parent Portal for your student(s) at Hofius Intermediate beginning Friday, September 28, 2018. Schoology is our Learning Management System that allows students to collaborate, communicate, and engage in learning through their teachers’ instruction. Teachers use Schoology to post their classroom materials online while providing a safe forum for students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects. This portal will give you access into your student(s) classes, assignments, and school/class announcements.

This is NOT the official gradebook so please continue to use Skyward Family Access to view your student's grades.

You received an email from Schoology on September 28th with your login information. Please pay close attention for this email in your inbox. If you do not receive an email, please contact schoology@kleinisd.net.

You can learn more on how to navigate and use Schoology, by accessing kisd.us/ParentSchoology. If you need assistance, please email schoology@kleinisd.net. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m - 4 p.m. We are excited to provide parents an opportunity to connect to their student’s blended learning environment.
