Schoology Self-Paced Parent Groups
If your student is enrolled in a Self-Paced or Self-Paced Plus course through Kolbe Academy, you will also receive access to a Parent Group associated with the course. The parent group will contain all the information you need to administer and proctor the course, including, but not limited to, the teacher version of the homeschool course plan, exams, answer keys, and potentially other supplemental materials to help your student master the course’s content.

Locating Parent Groups
To find parent group for the self-paced courses, you will first need to switch to your parent view in Schoology. When you first log into 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.
To the left side of the Parent Group page, you can find contact information for Tech Support and the Kolbe Advising office.
Parent Group Resources
Every Self-Paced Parent Group includes resources to administer and proctor the course. These can be found by clicking the “Resources” tab to the left side of the Parent Group page.
The Resources section will include an introductory page, FAQs, a link to the required texts (and the option to purchase) from Kolbe’s Bookstore, and folders with administrative course content. Each parent group will at least have an “Exams & Answer Keys” or “Chapter Tests & Chapter Test Answer Keys” folder; however, most parent groups will also include other folders with additional content.
Here is a full list of folders that may be found within a parent group. Note that folders available vary from group to group, depending on what is included with the self-paced course.
Some courses include Online Access to a publisher’s site, which includes online content or e-texts that can be accessed throughout the student’s time in the course. If the course enrollment includes online access to a publisher’s online materials, the request/registration form will be available in the parent group.
Open the request form and follow the instructions listed to request access. Once the required information is received, a member of the Kolbe team will process your information and send login information. This could take up to 7 business days for activation.
