Dear Parents/Guardians

Novi Community Schools uses Schoology as a Learning Management System (LMS) for grades 5-12 and Novi Virtual. Each teacher has a Schoology page to which your child has been added. To access your child’s Schoology classes, please follow the directions below. You will need a Parent Access Code, which has been specifically assigned for your child. Your child’s teacher will give you the 12-digit code and that one code will give you access to all their classes. If your child is a new student, it takes approximately 24-48 hours to get your information into the system.


Connect to Schoology to receive important updates from your child and teacher in their Schoology courses.
  • Your child may complete coursework within Schoology.
  • Teachers will also send you messages, reminders, or important information.
  • Schoology is private. You'll only see posts created by your child or their teacher.
