What Is Schoology?

All teachers in grades 6-12 use Schoology (pronounced /skoo-luh-jee/) - an online tool that serves as a one-stop shop for course information, assignments, grades and other learning related information. Teachers also use it to post updates to their class and school administration posts important notifications such as upcoming events.

Parents can register for a Schoology account that is linked with their children's accounts. One username and password within Schoology grants access to your child(ren)’s teachers, courses, schoolwork and grades.

Schoology Mobile App

Schoology 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 associate your parent account with WSD's Schoology portal and 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 Wissahickon SD students automatically have a Schoology account. They can log in at https://wsdweb.schoology.com/ using their WSD network account 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: Access codes were emailed home at the beginning of the school year. If you did not receive the letter/email, or have lost the code, you can request it from Lisa Stoler at WHS - lstoler@wsdweb.org - or Marlene Singer at the WMS - msinger@wsdweb.org.

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 your information in the box, not your child’s. Your child already has a Schoology account. Schoology will use the access code you’ve entered to associate your new parent account with WSD's Schoology portal and 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.

Q: Do I create a parent account for each of my children?

A: No, if you have multiple children, 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. You can link each child in your family to your account in this manner.

Q: How do I log in once I have created my Schoology parent account?
