Schoology is an online communication and networking site that we have purchased for all High School and Middle School students. Each teacher is required to use Schoology for at least one class during 1st and 2nd Term and for all classes starting 3rd Term. Schoology allows you to see the most current grading information, along with assignment information and requirements, upcoming projects, etc. *WMS staff are in the learning phases of Schoology and have not fully implemented all aspects and are learning new features every month. We are also experiencing some difficulties in the grading conversion process from Schoology to Powerschool and continue to work with technical support to iron out all of these issues. We think that this will be a great tool for our building but ask for your patience in the implementation process.
The Middle School is dedicating our normal Parent Teacher Conference time to roll out Schoology Parent Login information to parents on November 13. If you have a student at both schools, you are only receiving middle school access at this time. Students are encouraged to attend with parents as they can assist parents in the Schoology access process. We ask that all parents/guardians enter through the main doors/ East Entrance and attend one Schoology presentation in the WMS Auditorium.
IF YOU WANT AN INDIVIDUAL CONFERENCE WITH A TEACHER, PLEASE ARRANGE THIS WITH THE TEACHER. PLEASE NOTE: Teachers will not be available after 8:00pm for individual conferencing unless prior arrangements are made.
The agenda for each Presentation on The Roll Out of Schoology Parent Log in Information is as follows:
15 minutes: WMS Auditorium: Schoology Parent Access Introduction presented by WMS Administration and Staff
30 minutes: Advisory Classrooms: Parents will move to their students’ advisory classroom for School Instructions and Log In. Parents will be walked through a tutorial on the features of the parent account, including courses, updates, grades, calendar, and communication links. Teachers will also give you examples of how they are using schoology in the classroom.
There are 5 Presentation options listed below and each presentation will be identical. We ask that each family please attend one presentation, and choose the one that works best for your schedule. If you have to miss the Introduction in the auditorium, then please report directly to your child’s advisory classroom.
