Understanding PowerSchool and Schoology

Following please find information about two tools available to parents and guardians – PowerSchool and Schoology. These two systems have different purposes that supplement each other.

Kindergarten - Grade 4
For students in Kindergarten through Grade 4, parents and guardians do not need to access PowerSchool. Parents and guardians of students in grades K-4 do need to access Schoology and a separate email with directions on how to do that will be sent to you shortly. We use Schoology to communicate classroom information and it may be used in the event that distance learning is needed, as well as for Remote Learning Mondays.

Grades 5 – 12
In grades 5-12, PowerSchool and Schoology are used together to inform families of classroom assignments and cumulative progress.

PowerSchool:
Current course grade
