Schoology for Parents
Tips & Tricks to help parents navigate Schoology
Schoology is used by LMTSD teachers to post their classroom materials online, provide a safe forum for students to discuss their ideas and collaborate on projects, and to pass out and collect homework electronically. It helps students stay organized and it keeps the class connected.
Schoology also has the ability for parents to create their own accounts which gives them access to their child's grades, their upcoming assignments, and classroom messages posted by the teacher. Parents can view any assignment submitted by their child, so not only do parents see the grade that was earned on the assignment but they can actually see the assignment that was turned in. Schoology helps parents to become more involved in their child's learning.
The one thing a parent will need to get started is the PARENT ACCESS CODE which can be given to them by the classroom teacher or emailed to them by a technology staff member. Contact your child's teacher first to get started!
Here are some helpful links to help you get started using Schoology.
- Create a new parent account using a Parent Access Code provided by your child's teacher
- The Parents' Guide To Schoology provides a detailed explanation of how to use multiple features within Schoology
- Add multiple children to your Schoology account so you can access all of your children's information from one location
- Compare your parent account to your child's account to get an understanding of how Schoology works for you and for your child
