Announcing... Schoology for OSD!
Available Spring 2017
What is Schoology?
Why does OSD need a Learning Management System?
The rapid increase in the number of student devices necessitates effective and flexible ways to deliver content to students and to track student progress within an online classroom environment. A common platform for all OSD users is highly desirable to facilitate this work. Schoology’s user-friendly interface and gradebook sync with Skyward are two of the top reasons that the pilot group embraced its use.
