Schoology Online Parent Group
If your student is enrolled in one or more online courses at Kolbe Academy, you will be included in an “Online Parents” group, which will allow you to connect with other parents of online students.

Locating the Online Parent Group
When you log in to your Schoology Parent account, it will default to the student view, which is discussed in the Schoology Student View article. To toggle from the student view to the parent view, click the drop-down arrow found to the top-right of the Schoology page, then click your name to switch views.
Once you are in the parent view of your account, locate the parent groups by clicking “Groups” on the main menu ribbon. This will bring up a drop-down from which you can select the parent group you want to view. You can also click the “See All” button to list all of your groups on a full browser page.
Parent Group Updates Page
When you first open a parent group, you will be directed to an “Updates” page. This page is used by Kolbe administration to post updates to the parent group as needed (you can also comment on the updates).
The Discussions page is where parents can discuss various topics related to online schooling. This can be accessed by clicking the “Discussions” tab on the menu to the left side of the parent group.
Parent Group Resources Page
The Online Parents group includes a spreadsheet that allows parents to list contact information so that students can keep in touch with other students with parent permission. This is located in the Resources section and can be accessed by clicking “Resources” on the menu to the left side of the Online Parents group page. Including your contact information here is completely optional.
