    What is Schoology?

    Schoology is the District's Learning Management System, a tool for communicating with students and families through teacher pages. Teachers use Schoology to post course content and assignments, provide resources and other information for students, and to review and accept student assignments, among many other things. Students can access Schoology from any computer or mobile device with Internet access. 

    What is the difference between Schoology and the Source?
