Parent access for COLE 3.0/Schoology
One of the great things about the Cherry Creek School District’s updated version of COLE is the parent interface. However, unlike COLE 2.0 (which used Moodle), parents will NOT access it using student’s PowerSchool login. And unlike Edmodo & Moodle, parents will not need a code to create an account or join a course.
Like teachers and students, parent will access COLE 3.0/Schoology using https://my.cherrycreekschools.org. When parents get to the login screen, s/he will log in using the account created for online parent forms.
Once logged into my.cherrycreekschools.org, parents will see several "tiles" that pertain to them. Clicking on the COLE 3.0. tile will take them directly into Schoology.
Parents should be automatically associated with their children, so they will not need to enroll in courses or groups. All children associated with the account can be selected using the pull-down arrow in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
For parents who don't have a parent forms account or need to create another one, there is an option on the my.cherrycreekschools.org login page to "create a new account."
To create a new account, parents need to know some specific information about his/her child, including the student ID#. Admissions will verify that the parent is one of the legal parents listed as a contact for that student. If the information provided matches exactly to the Admissions system, an email will be sent to the parent’s email address. The parent will need to click on the link in the email to finalize the creation of their my.cherrycreekschools.org account.
New parent accounts will be able to access Schoology using this account within 24 hours, provided that they followed the steps above and Admissions was successful in verifying the parent.
Schoology Help has a section specifically targeting parent users, please consult this link as issues arise or contact Adrienne DeBall, WMS Technology Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 720/554-5216.
