A Parent's View of Schoology Using a Web Browser

There are two types of Schoology accounts: Student Accounts and Parent Accounts. This email will share how parents and students will access their accounts. Students and Parents use different websites to access Schoology.

We encourage everyone to log into their accounts before the first day of school, so that you are familiar with the platform, verify passwords and practice finding Zoom links to alleviate frustration from the first day of school.

As a reminder, Teachers have been working non stop over the last couple weeks to learn Schoology, set up their Schoology classrooms and explore all the supporting tools that come along with it. When you and your child log in to Schoology for the first time, please remember teachers may still be building their sites and adding pieces as they spend more time with the platform. Please be patient and flexible during these first two weeks.

Student Accounts

Students will use their Berkley Schools Google accounts to log into SchoologyStudent accounts are ready to view. Once logged in, students will see a welcome message from Schoology and tutorial windows will pop up to guide them through the screens. In the Courses section, you will see all the classes your child is enrolled in. Explore all the sections of the Schoology platform to become familiar before the first day of school.

Student Google Account Information

For elementary students, each child’s email address and password are located in the MISTAR Parent Portal under Network Login.

For secondary students, each child’s email address is listed in the MISTAR Parent Portal under Network Login. Their original assigned password may also be listed, but your child may have changed their password in the past. If they do not know their password, they should reach out to their school Media Specialist for a password reset. We encourage you to reach out to Media Specialists as soon as possible.

Known Issues

Google DocSchoology troubleshooting guide for Berkley Schools families

Duplicate Courses

We are aware of some duplicate courses showing in some student accounts. While we work on resolving this issue, your child’s teacher will only work in one of the courses. You can find all the information you need in the active course. 

Schoology App

At this time, we do not recommend using the Schoology App. It needs some updates to work with our Zoom accounts for live instruction. We are working with Zoom on this issue, and will announce when the Schoology App is ready to go. If your child is using a tablet for school, you will need to download the Zoom App.

Elementary Specials Classes - Update

Links to the elementary specials teachers courses have been sent to each student in their Schoology accounts. Use the codes provided to add the specials courses to your child's Schoology account.

URL Showing During Parent Login

If you see a message pop up below the login screen, asking “Did you mean to log in from…” please ignore this URL.

Berkley Schools purchased Zoom as a Schoology plug in to run all of our live teaching and learning sessions. Each teacher's Zoom link will be inside of their Schoology Classroom. The Zoom section of each classroom will be clearly labeled and inside of the Zoom section, you'll click on Join when it's time for your child's live session.

Zoom may need to be downloaded on your laptop, computer or tablet in order to run the Schoology sessions. Please make sure to log in early to the first sessions to allow any updates or downloads to take place before the live session begins.

Zoom accounts are safe and secure embedded inside of Schoology.
