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 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).
Parent and guardian accounts are also automatically created and are available through the parent ID Portal.
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 and guardians are able to reset passwords from the ID Portal by clicking on "Need help?" and then selecting "Forgot My Password."
Parent and guardian Schoology accounts are managed by PAUSD. All PAUSD parents and guardians are automatically enrolled in a course on Schoology called the “PAUSD Schoology Backpack.” This course provides information and step by step instructions for how to use Schoology and access important information. This course is also a model for what your student(s) might experience in Schoology. Taking a few minutes to explore the “PAUSD Schoology Backpack” is recommended.
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.
