We are excited for Schoology, FCPS' new learning management system. Schoology (pronounced /SKOO-luh-jee/)  is a learning space that enhances communication, collaboration, and personalized learning for students, teachers, and families. We are excited to work with you this fall as we use this system to support our students! 

Here is what you need to know now: 

  • We will not use Blackboard 24-7 Learning or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra (BBCU)
  • Schoology has a connected web conferencing tool, Zoom
  • Schoology works with Google Drive
  • You will need a SIS/ParentVUE account to login to Schoology: 
    • If you are a family new to Chesterbrook, you will receive activation information between August 11th and August 13th. 
  • Parent accounts will be available mid-August and more information about how to login to parent accounts will be shared with you closer to the start of the school year
  • Students can log in using their FCPS student ID and password. Look for the FCPS logo to make sure you are on the correct login page
    • Students new to FCPS will receive this information at the beginning of the year
    • Students will not see any classes until the grading period starts
  • As a parent or guardian, you will be able to use Schoology to view:
    • Your child’s class
    • Your child’s assignments and participation
    • Your child’s calendar
    • Teacher comments, scores, and feedback 

We look forward to using Schoology along with your SIS/ParentVue account to strengthen our partnerships throughout the school year. Our next communication will share how to login to Schoology. In the meantime, you are welcome to learn more about this learning management system by visiting:
