What is Schoology?
Schoology Flyer (pdf)
Schoology is the District's new Learning Management System (LMS). This is the tool for communicating with students and families through teacher pages, posting assignments and information for students, and accepting student assignments, among many other things. Students can access Schoology from any computer or mobile device with Internet access.
What is the difference between Schoology, Source, and the District/School website?
Schoology is our Learning Management System, where teachers can post course content, provide resources for students, and review assignments. The Source is where parents/guardians, and students go to see their current schedule, assessment scores, attendance, library information and secondary student grades. The District/School website is our externally-facing web presence for people interested in learning more about our schools and programs.
