Parent Access In Schoology

Parents have the ability to access student courses in Schoology. Essentially parents would need to get a code from the teacher, and then create a parent account in Schoology. The steps below outline what you need to do as the teacher and what parents need to do to gain access to their student’s courses.


Part 1: Getting the Parent Access Codes as a Teacher

  1. Go into your course. Select Members on the left side of the screen.
  1. On the right-hand side, click the link to get Parent Access Codes. You will then be prompted to download a spreadsheet with all parent codes for your classes.
  1. Determine how you will get the parent code to the parents. There are two options:
  • Physically copy/paste or write down individual codes to give to parents in a note or email.
  • Complete a mail merge to automatically create a printout of the parent codes.

Part 2: Signing Up as a Parent in Schoology
