Schoology

Schoology will provide you a one stop shop for viewing your student's assignments, communication with their teachers, and much more.  As a parent, you have access to view everything your student has been assigned as well as the resources needed to complete the assignment.  You will also see the feedback and assignment grades provided by the teacher.  Schoology also gives you the ability to access all messages and communication from the school.  


You might be asking,”When can I get access?”
We cannot thank you enough for the support you are providing your students as we all learn more in Schoology.  Now that student and teacher accounts are up and running, we want to provide you with information about your parent account.  Please check your student's NISD email account on September 18th.  You will receive an email with your student's Schoology Access Code and instructions for creating a parent account.  If you are not able to access the email, you can reach out to your child's teacher for the access code after September 18th.  

Schoology offers parents many options to view classwork, grades, and upcoming assignments.  You can also check attendance, look for overdue assignments, and communicate with your student's teachers.

My email isn’t working, what can I do?

Schoology and Google Drive will not sync, what can my child do?

Troubleshooting Google & Schoology for Parents and Students

Here are a few troubleshooting pointers to help with the issues you may be having with Google and Schoology.

  1. Ensure that the student device is logged out of any personal accounts (including parent or sibling accounts), and only signed into their NISD Gmail account. Once you are completely logged out of all email accounts, then close and relaunch Chrome, only log in at ​gmail.nisd.net​.

    Students must use their full NISD email address to log in.
    Student example:​ firstname.lastname@students.nisd.net
    (Please keep in mind that some student email addresses may include numbers for common names)
     
  2. Students who are using a chromebook, laptop or desktop should be sure they have ​connected their Google Drive Resources App​ inside of Schoology before they try to open a Google Assignment. This ​video​ will provide the same information for iOS devices.
     
  3. When students open a Google Drive Assignment, they are sent into the Assignment tab. Here they will find instructions for the assignment. Students will need to click on the My Document tab at the top and then make sure they are signed in to Google on this page to see their Google Assignment. (See image below). Here are videos on how this looks in a ​Chrome Browser​ or ​iOS/Apple mobile device.
