Guide to Schoology Use for Parents

Schoology

The ROCORI School District uses Schoology as it's Learning Management system for students in grades K-12.


Schoology is designed and intended for student use, but parents are able to access student learning and class materials as well. Allowing parents to engage in the learning process with their student and provide intervention or support when needed.


Schoology integrates with both our Microsoft Teams and OneDrive plus out grading book component of Skyward. This allows for transfer of information between these systems.


However, Skyward is the official grade book and should be the resource for monitoring grades and academic progress.

Logging into Schoology as a Student

Logging into Schoology
Students' login to Schoology using their Microsoft 365 credentials. This is their username with @rocori.k12.mn.us at the end of it. If on a school issued device, they may not have to enter this.


Parents login into Schoology using their own email address and a password. The e-mail address used in Schoology is copied from Skyward. If you do not have an e-mail address in Skyward, you will want to contact your student’s building to update your information. You will need to set your password for your account in Schoology, you can find instructions on how to do that here:

Accessing Your Account versus Child's Account

Having a Parent account in Schoology is actually like having two accounts:

  1. Your personal account, with your own name and information;
  2. Your Child Activity view. From here, you can view Schoology from your child’s perspective, and see what he or she sees, and receive updates about his or her activity.


Start by clicking on the arrow in the upper-right corner, next to your name, and then select your child’s name to switch into his or her account. The checkmark in this drop-down menu indicates which account you are currently viewing.
