Schoology Info for Parents

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 K-12.

Parents may have an account that can be linked with their children's accounts. When parents log in, they will see a Facebook-like interface that links them to the District Schoology page as well as the school pages where their children attend and each child's classroom.


Schoology Mobile App

Schoology also has a convenient mobile app that can be downloaded and used on mobile phones, tablets, and iPads! This app can be found in the Google Play and iTunes stores.

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 link your new parent account with your child.
 
Q: Do I need to set up an account for my child?
A: No. All active students automatically have a Schoology account. They can log in at http://schoology.coloradoriverschools.org using their school account (user@student.bullheadschools.com and user@student.cruhsd.org) and password
 
Q: I don’t understand what my child’s access code is for?
A: Schoology creates a unique access code for each student account. The purpose of this access code is to allow parents to link their personal Schoology account with that of their child(ren).
 
Q: How do I get my child’s access code?
A: Parent letters with your child’s access code are sent home from each school at the beginning of the school year. If you did not receive a letter or have lost the code, you can request it from the school office or your child's teacher.
 
Q: Why do I need my child’s access code to set up my parent Schoology account?
A: 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 link your new parent account with your child.
 
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. Schoology will use the access you’ve entered in 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:
  1. In your browser, navigate to www.schoology.com.
  2. In the top right corner of the screen, click the Sign Up button.
  3. Select Parent from the options
  4. Enter the Access Code for your child that was sent home from their school.
  5. 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: Do I create a parent account for each of my children?
A: Yes and No.
     The answer is yes if you have children that attend different schools.  For example, if you have a child that attends Diamondback Elementary and a child that attends Fox Creek Junior High, you will need two different accounts, one for each school.  Once you have created the two accounts, you can link them together so you only need to use one login to access both accounts.  You can find a help document above.

     The answer is no if you have multiple children at the same school. 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. 
 
Q: How do I log in once I have created my Schoology parent account?
A: Parents will log into Schoology by visiting www.schoology.com whereas students will access Schoology by visiting schoology.coloradoriverschools.org
 
Q: What do I do if I forget my parent password to Schoology?
A: Go to www.schoology.com and click the Login button,  Select the 'Forget your password?' link.  Complete the form and a password reset link will be sent to your personal email account.
