Linking Parent Accounts

What is linking accounts?


Since parents must have an account at each of the schools their children attend, you may have multiple Schoology accounts. For example, if you have one child at a High School, and one child at a Middle School, you must have accounts at both schools, and use the linking feature to toggle between accounts.

By keeping both accounts, and linking them together, you can access all content from a single login. This feature also allows each school to manage your parent account settings appropriately, and to communicate with you seamlessly.


How do I link accounts?


To Link an Account, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the downfacing arrow on the upper right of the Parent account you'd like to keep primary (you will be using this account to login to Schoology).
  2. Click Account Settings in the dropdown menu.
  3. Scroll near the bottom of the Account Settings page and click the Link Accounts button.
  4. Enter the Email or Username of the parent account at the other school.
  5. Enter the password of the other parent account.
  6. Click Link Account to complete.

Select a Primary email address for linked accounts

A list of your primary account and linked account(s) will appear in the Link Account area upon completion. If you have multiple primary email addresses for these accounts, enable the feature to Select a primary email address. This feature allows email notifications for each linked account to go to the primary email address listed in this area.
