Everything You Need to Get Started on September 1, 2020

What is Schoology?

Schoology is a one-stop shop for teachers, students, and parents. Lessons, assignments, grades, and assessments will be stored and accessed in this platform. A benefit of using this platform is having all of our teachers use one system which will alleviate confusion and minimize frustration when using multiple apps and programs. Also, parents will receive weekly emails to monitor their child's progress, communicate directly to the teachers, and seek assistance for technical support. It is imperative your contact information in Baker's student directory (i.e. phone number, email address, etc...) is current and correct. Support will be offered during school hours from the teachers and after hours on the Alabama Homework Hotline.

How do I access my Classes?


  1. Do students have to wear uniforms for online learning? Students need to be dressed appropriately, but do not have to wear official school uniform.
  2. Do we need to buy any school supplies? Teachers will notify students of any supplies needed during the first weeks of school.
  3. How will attendance be monitored during online learning? Teachers will be able to check attendance daily by viewing whether or not the students have logged into their courses through the Schoology platform.
  4. What if I miss the "Live Instruction" in my class? If you are unable to attend a live session, you will be able to access the recorded lesson at a later time. It is expected students are present for daily instruction.
