What is Schoology?
Schoology is an online tool that manages curriculum, assessments, grading and other classroom management tasks and is also a communication platform for educators and students in grades 6 -12.
This tool will be an integral part of how teachers design and implement their lesson plans, assignments and grades. They will use it to post updates to their class and communicate with parents. Parents will be able to see what their children are working on.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do parents have to set up their own accounts?
A: Yes, parents/guardians need to register for their own accounts in Schoology. When parents register to create their own accounts in Schoology, part of the registration process is to enter in your child’s access code. Schoology uses this access code to associate your parent account with St. Johns County School’s Schoology portal and to link your new parent account with your child.
Q: How do I register for a parent account?
A: Use the following steps to register for your parent account:
- In your browser, navigate to www.schoology.com.
- In the top right corner of the screen, click the Sign Up button.
- Select Parent from the options
- Enter the Access Code for your child that was sent home from their school.
- Fill out the information for your new Schoology account (your email address and the password you want to use for your Schoology account) and click “Register.”
Q: When going through the registration process, do I enter in my child’s name in the box?
A: No, when registering for your parent Schoology account, you enter in your information in the box, not your child’s. Your child already has a Schoology account.
Q: Do I need to set up an account for my child?
A: No. All active SJCSD students automatically have a Schoology account. They can log in at https://stjohnsschools.schoology.com using their school account and password.
Q: How do I get my child’s access code?
A: Parent letters with your child’s access code will be sent home from each school. If you did not receive a letter or have lost the code, please contact your child’s teacher.
Q: Do I create a parent account for each of my children?
A: No, if you have multiple children, you create a single parent account with 1 child’s code. After you have created your account, you can link the rest of your children to your account within Schoology by clicking on the arrow in the top left corner by your name and selecting +Add Child. Enter in another child’s code in the box, click “USE CODE” and they will now be linked to your account. You can link each child in your family to your account in this manner.
