Checking Your Student’s Progress in Schoology

Today marks the mid-point of the 2nd Quarter. This year, Progress Reports will not be mailed home, unless the student currently has a D or F in a course. Parents can check their student’s progress in Schoology. Last night, Ms. Goetz hosted a meeting explaining how parents can use Schoology to check their student’s grades. You can view the recording of the meeting or download a pdf of instructions from the District. (You must sign into an MNPS account to view the pdf.) You can also watch the district’s video called “Staying Informed: Checking Your Student’s Progress in Schoology.”
