Schoology for Parents
OverviewThe Mercer Island School District uses the Schoology platform as a digital learning management system (LMS) in grades 6-12. An LMS is a multi-function tool for classroom communication, file distribution, assignments, quizzes and more. Islander Middle School has been using Schoology for a number of years, while the high school is in its first second year of school-wide implementation.
InstructionsSchoology also has a system for parent accounts so that you can view course updates, materials and upcoming assignments. Please follow the steps below to access your account. It should be noted that this process is different than the one we've used in previous years. If you have any questions or need assistance, high and middle school families should contact Clay Laughary by email.
