What Is Schoology?
Schoology (pronounced school-ogy) 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 Greene School Schoology page.
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 and have access to their grades through Schoology.
Course pages are where teachers post content documentation, photos, handouts, assignments, and other information that he/she wants to retain from year to year. Parents will visit as little or as much as they want to get a snapshot of the class.
Group pages are where teachers will share information with that have a short “lifespan” i.e., shortterm updates and/or communication. (Users should know that all content from these group pages will not be retained after the end of the school year.)

Early Childhood to Second Grade
In these grades, Schoology is really for the adults. Parents to children in these grades will see how our playbased approach fosters child-centered learning. Parents will observe how teachers engage students in creative, differentiated curricula. Teachers may also use Schoology to share information, dates, and schedules with parents.
Third Grade and Fourth Grade
Parents are provided with a glimpse into their child(ren)’s school life. At this level, teachers will use Schoology in a variety of ways, including links to teacher blogs and newsletters, pictures of classroom activities and general information.
Fifth Grade to Eighth Grade
By the time a child enters Middle School, the role of Schoology becomes very much teacher-student focused. For parents of Middle Schoolers, Schoology becomes a tool to help you keep abreast of your child’s assignments and activities. Teachers will use Schoology to share assignments, documents, and resources with their students, to post homework, or facilitate group projects. Teachers will use Schoology to support their curriculum.
