Home Page (Parents)

The My Children area is set as your Home Page. It is the first place you'll land every time you log in to Schoology. It briefs you on activity in your  student's school, courses, and groups. It also keeps you organized by showing important upcoming events and assignments.

Activity Summary

The My Children activity summary displays updates in your child's school, courses, and groups. If you have more than one child using Schoology, you can select which child’s information you would like to view by clicking the All Children dropdown and choosing from the list that appears.

Calendar

Click on the Calendar tab located under My Children to view a Calendar that contains all events associated with your child/children. Each event is color coded: Course events are orange, Group events are green, School events are pink, and Personal events are blue. There is a color guide below the calendar for your reference.

To find out more information regarding a particular event, place your cursor over the title. A cluetip will appear with the event type (assignment, test/quiz, event), the course or group that the event is associated with, and the child's name that is associated with that event. Clicking on the event will display profile information in a popup window.

Note: The calendar tab on the left menu is separate from the calendar in My Children. The calendar on the left menu is your personal calendar, which you may use to add personal events or view events related to courses and groups in which you are enrolled.

 Grades

Click on the Grades tab located under My Children to view the list of courses for your child/children. If you have more than one child, you can select a child from the list to view their courses.

Courses are divided into Current and Past courses. Clicking into a course will display assessment information by categories defined by the course instructor, as well as the Grade, Max Points, and Comments for your child. You may find more details by clicking on the assessment name.

Attendance

Click on the Attendance tab located under My Children to view your child's attendance record. If you have more than one child, you can select a child from the list to view their courses.

Attendance is divided into Current and Past courses. Clicking into a course will display the dates during which your child had been Absent, Late, or Excused. Comments attached to absent, late, or excused dates will appear in the blue Comments box below the list of dates.

Note: Depending on the settings in place at your school, you may not see all of these options in your My Children area.
