Schoology for Parents
Schoology is our Learning Management System (LMS), the online system that allows teachers to provide resources, make and grade assignments, communicate valuable feedback, and more. Students use Schoology to access and explore learning materials, practice skills, take assessments, submit work, and more.
Schoology is provided by the Alabama State Department of Education as part of a state-wide adoption of the Powerschool line of products and services, including the PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS) that will be available starting in the 2021-22 school year. We have been using Schoology for the past school year and are looking forward to this incorporation of more Powerschool tools - like the direct communication between the Schoology gradebook and the Powerschool SIS (grades get recorded automatically!) and the increased access to actionable student performance data by teachers, administrators, and parents.
These short videos were developed by Schoology especially for parents:
