Schoology is a dynamic, intuitive, and user-centric learning management solution, which is the platform used to manage the day-to-day activities related to content distribution, collection, and collaboration between students and teachers. Schoology is the in-progress system that facilitates and organizes information for students and teachers, while Infinite Campus is the permanent record system. Schoology is also used as the platform for content delivery in blended/hybrid high school courses, as well as for PAUSD's professional development courses.
To get started, please see these help guides from Schoology or see below for the most frequently asked questions.
Staff and students accounts are automatically provisioned when they enter PAUSD and no further action is needed. You will simply use the ID Portal login information provided to you by your manager (staff) or counselor (student).
Starting in the Fall 2019, Parent accounts will be automatically created. Schoology will be available through the ID Portal for parents beginning in early September 2019.
Staff and students should contact their assigned technical support at the school so that they may reset your SSO login. Students may also alert their teachers and/or counselors if assistance is needed.
Parents may use the ‘Forgot Password’ function in Schoology. Please note that this requires that you have entered an email address during or after creating your Schoology account. If you need additional assistance, please contact our Help Desk and we will try to locate your account. In case we cannot find a match, and due to security reasons, you may need to create a new account.
In Schoology, courses transition to archived mode once the semester ends. This transition typically occurs the Sunday after the semester end date. Once courses are archived, students and parents/guardians do not have access to past Schoology courses including content and grades.
It is recommended that students and parents/guardians refer to Infinite Campus for course grades after the end of a semester, as that is where final grades and comments are stored and used for official grade reporting.
If information about individual assignments is required, staff has access to archived courses and may also print a Schoology grade report for the desired students. As the district transitions to fully leveraging Schoology, we have also recognized this grading use case as an improvement area for the platform. We have already opened a feature request with Schoology asking that students have full access to their grading reports, even for archived courses.
