Parent Access to Schoology and Skyward!
Each teacher’s Schoology page will be an excellent resource for you. If you have questions about logging into Schoology, follow this link which gives you job aides and videos to assist with that process.
There are many great features in Skyward that will also keep you up to date with your student's progress in their courses. Click here for more information about how to set up notifications and access other resources through Skyward Family Access. Remember to fully access the Skyward Family Access features, you must have completed your student's information online!
It's Time To Update Your Student's Information!
Monday is the LAST day to complete this task online. We will be sending home packets with all students that do not have updated online information.
The window for student verification is now open for all new and returning FBISD students. Parents must verify the contact and emergency information for all students each year! Through Family Access, parents can verify their student’s information and learn more about District resources including Child Nutrition and Extended Learning. Parents without Family Access accounts will need to contact their child’s campus for assistance.
