Parent Accounts in Schoology

Parent Process

Click Here for a Video Tutorial

SVVS Schoology accounts for parents are created only after they have created a full Parent Portal account in Infinite Campus with a unique email address. The office staff at each individual school can assist parents and guardians in creating a full Infinite Campus Parent Portal account that will require the GUID number and school code. Within 24 hours after the creation of the Infinite Campus account a Schoology account will be created and an email from Schoology will be sent to the email address provided from Infinite Campus.

It is important to note that not every school, or every teacher, uses Schoology so please check with your building about their method of communicating homework and assignments. Example of email below.

  • Other notes:
    Parents log in to schoology.com (or app.schoology.com) and NOT svvsd.schoology.org like students and staff do.
  • SVVS staff members and teachers that have children attending school in St. Vrain are tied to their child via that district provided Schoology account and not a typical parent account. The log into schoology.svvsd.org.
  • Parents can change the default period in ‘Settings’ after the initial log in.
  • If a parent forgets their Schoology password the password needs to be reset at schoology.com by clicking the ‘Forgot your password’ link.
  • If parents enter a single email address, or the same email address, in Infinite Campus Schoology will only one Schoology account. If both parents would like a Schoology account they would need to enter a unique email address for both people in Infinite Campus.
  • SVVS Schoology parent accounts rollover year-to-year so they will use the same credentials each year.
  • All official grades and attendance are kept in Infinite Campus and not Schoology.

* Only parents that have a Infinite Campus parent portal account and a unique email address will have a Schoology account. The log in information is sent from Schoology after the parent portal account is created. Contact the school registrar if you need help with this step.

* If you have a district email account for any reason, a substitute teacher for example, you will log in as a staff member. If you have questions please contact the registrar at the school your child attends.
