Quaker Valley School District will be adopting a learning management system called Schoology during the 2017-2018 school year. With Schoology students can digitally submit homework assignments, review grades, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take tests and much more. Parents will be able to view their child's activity including assignments, calendars, and communication with the teacher within the platform. Schoology enables students, parents and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond. Quaker Valley looks forward to using Schoology beginning in November 2017.
Although the official implementation of Schoology will begin in November, teachers may choose to begin using Schoology with students and parents as early as the start of the current school year. Teachers who choose to use Schoology prior to November will communicate this to parents and students. In order to ensure that you receive these communications, it is important for all parents and guardians to create an account in Schoology. Click here for directions.
To create this account, parents must enter their Schoology login and access code. Individual codes are being mailed home mid-August.
Once you have created an account, you can add additional children from your household to your account so that you can view information on all of your children from one convenient place. Students will have separate usernames and passwords that will be provided to them during the first few weeks of school. Please note that gradebooks for students in grades 3-12 will still be accessed through PowerSchool during the 2017-2018 school year. A link to PowerSchool is available in Schoology.
Additional resources for parents can be found in the help center accessed by clicking the question mark (?) icon in the upper right-hand corner of the Schoology home page. Parents may also access additional information on how to use Schoology in the Schoology Parent Guide located here.
If you have questions or feedback regarding Schoology, please email Sandra Calgaro, QVSD Technology Coach, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
