SCHOOLOGY AND POWERSCHOOL

The use of Schoology and PowerSchool is different this year. Schoology is used as a communication platform for students. This is a place for students to see their assignments, potentially take tests, and communicate with their teachers. PowerSchool is where students and parents will go to check grades and communicate with teachers. Cumulative grades are only being stored in PowerSchool. Some teachers may use Schoology for grading, but the final, cumulative grades will only be in PowerSchool.

nwschools.org

Please refer to our nwschools.org website for any questions, technology support, PowerSchool etc. For the 21-22 school year, it is REQUIRED that all custodial parents have a PowerSchool account. This will allow you to make changes and keep you informed on important information.
