Schoology from the Parent Perspective

We have heard some feedback from parents that posting activities in a weekly/daily format has been very helpful and easy to follow. Parents have said it is easier for them to locate the week and then find the day their child needs to complete.

Below are some pictures from Ms. Stalker's page of how she posts her lessons.

If you need assistance with this, feel free to reach out to the coaches.
