Schoology Parent Walkthrough

Parent Schoology Access

GMSD teachers use Schoology to post calendar events and resources for their students. As a parent, you also have a Schoology account that is associated with your child. All Schoology parent accounts automatically sync from Skyward. This eliminates the need for parents to sign up for Schoology and type in a student access code. All that is done automatically.

You may use your Skyward email address to log into Schoology. To log in to Schoology, go to and enter the email address you have associated with Skyward Family Access. The first time you log in, you will need to reset your password by clicking the “Forgot your password” link.

The login procedure for parents is different than the procedure for students. Students log in at and use their Google email and password. 

Parents, if you have any questions or issues with your Schoology account, contact Chris Cooper (901-752-7880 or If your child has an issue with their Schoology access, we have full-time tech staff at each school to assist them.

Once you get logged in, be sure to download and install the Schoology mobile app from your phone’s app store. It is super helpful for accessing Schoology on the go!
