Parent Schoology Information
GRANT COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL
At Grant Community High School, we use Schoology as our learning management system (LMS). If your student used Google Classroom in the past for any courses, Schoology is the same type of system only more robust.
Schoology provides course management, mobile learning, and support for system-wide communication. It also enables our students, parents, and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond. With Schoology, students can digitally submit homework assignments, review grades, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take tests, write academic blogs, and more. As a parent, you will be able to view your student’s activity within the platform. Student progress and activity will be monitored by faculty to ensure a safe, secure, and controlled environment.
One feature of Schoology is the ability to grade assessments and assignments submitted to or taken on the system. Therefore, Schoology also has a gradebook component; however, Skyward is and will remain the official gradebook for reporting purposes. Sometimes the syncing of grades may be delayed so the Skyward gradebook may not match the Schoology gradebook for a bit. Eventually they will match. If you have any questions, please ask your student’s teacher.
Students are provided their login information for their Schoology account, and they begin using it during the first week of classes.
Schoology will help provide you with more information about your student’s coursework and enhance communication between your student, the school, and your student’s teacher. We hope you access this system to engage in your student’s learning experience. Thank you for your time and cooperation.
