Schoology for Parents
What is Schoology?
Schoology (pronounced: Skool'uh-jee) is our district's learning management system (LMS). Schoology was chosen by a committee of educators, administrators, curriculum staff, and technology staff members.
KCSD Technology Vision
Excellence is the goal of the Kenton County School District (KCSD). Implementation of the digital conversion (DC) will transform teaching and learning to ensure that students learn at higher levels while mastering content standards. The DC will foster new, creative, and innovative ways of learning and will be observable through the 7 concepts of the Kentucky Academic Standards for Technology:
- Empowered Learner
- Digital Citizen
- Knowledge Constructor
- Innovative Designer
- Computational Thinker
- Creative Communicator
- Global Collaborator
KCSD strongly believes that technology is a "tool" to enhance instruction and learning, allowing students to have the world at their fingertips. When used appropriately, technology will take our classrooms to new levels of learning for ALL KIDS, ensuring they are fully prepared for the 21st Century and College/Career ready.
Schoology is a tool for students where they will have access to learning 24/7.
With the movement of KCSD towards 1:1, Schoology offers our students and staff a platform for collaboration, communication, organization, discussions, as well as a place to submit and provide feedback on assignments. Students will be able to access their school work anywhere at any time. Schoology will house the day to day work, while final grades will remain housed in Infinite Campus.
Schoology is not just for students and teachers; it is also for parents. With your parental account, you will be able to view your child's activities, courses, calendar, updates and groups. This will connect you directly to your child's learning.
