Important Information on How to Log In to Schoology
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.
Students will use their Berkley Schools Google accounts to log into Schoology. 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.
Parent emails will come from Schoology (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the subject line will be Schoology Registration. Inside of this email from Schoology, you will receive a Login Link, Username (your MISTAR Parent Portal PIN), and Password. This email will be sent to the primary email listed in MISTAR for your child.
Here is a sample of what the email will look like that you will receive today from Schoology:
