Parents with Students in Different School Districts
Schoology requires parents to have an account at each of the Schoology organizations in which their children are enrolled, you may have multiple Schoology accounts. For example, if you have one child at a high school in one district but another is at at a middle school in a different district, you must have an account in each district/organization, and use the linking feature to toggle between them. To set up different accounts, you must use different email addresses.
By keeping both accounts, and linking them together, you can access all content from a single login. This feature also allows each district to manage your parent account settings appropriately, and to communicate with you seamlessly.
