Cabell County Schools is pleased to announce the district has adopted Schoology as the district’s learning management system for the 2018-2019 school year.

Schoology is an online gradebook and classroom management platform that enables students, parents and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond.

“The adoption of Schoology is a gigantic leap forward for our instructional program,” says Ryan Saxe, Cabell County Schools Superintendent. “With Schoology, we are leveraging cutting-edge technology to assist our teachers in organizing subject content while simultaneously improving communication among our students, teachers, and families. I believe it is going to be a game changer for our district.”  

Utilizing Schoology, students can digitally submit homework assignments, review grades, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements, gain feedback from teachers, take tests, write academic blogs, and much more. Parents will be able to view their child’s activity within the platform and will be able to interact directly with teachers.

In the coming week, letters will be sent home with students with instructions explaining how to set up Schoology accounts. Duplicate letters will also be mailed directly to all student households. The letters will contain student-specific codes that must be used to establish a new account. If a parent has multiple children enrolled in the school district, all their children can be added to one account.

“We conducted extensive training with teachers before students returned to school and they are already finding innovative ways to utilize Schoology to support instruction,” says Jason Jackson, Director of Technology for Cabell County Schools. “Now, we are thrilled to be putting this tremendous resource in the hands of our parents. We believe our families will quickly find Schoology involves them much more directly in their child’s learning experience.”

For more information about Schoology or if you need assistance setting up an account, please contact your child’s school.  

The district will be announcing a series of events designed to provide additional technical help for parents in the coming weeks.
