Your child has been using Schoology to communicate with his/her teacher and classmates this year. This communication tool has many benefits, such as allowing teachers to post assignments online so students can access them from anywhere, and giving students the opportunity to participate in class discussions with their teachers and classmates. Another benefit is that parents can create their own accounts so they can see their child's Schoology account. Creating your own parent account will give you access to the materials and updates your child's teacher has posted, such as homework assignments, test dates, study packets, and more. Check out the information below and feel free to ask any questions in the comments sections.

Getting to Know Schoology
When you first log in to Schoology, you will see your account's Home Page. This page shows a feed of recent activity, like updates and upcoming school events. This information will be pertinent to your account, but you won't see your child's content. To view your child's activity, follow these directions:
The Student Activity area displays the most recent updates, submissions, comments, and grades for a student account. To filter these items, click on the Most Recent toggle to the right of the Student Activity heading.
On the right column of the Summary page, the Upcoming area displays a list of approaching events and graded items in the child's school, courses, and groups. To view more details about the item, click on the name of the item from the list.
Calendar (Left Menu)
This calendar displays events and items with due dates in the child's school, courses, and groups. To find out more information regarding a particular event, place your cursor over the title. A cluetip will appear with the event type (assignment, test/quiz, event), the course or group that the event is associated with, and the child's name that is associated with that event. Clicking on the event will display profile information in a popup window.
