Managing Schoology Groups

This article references the Secondary Schoology Guidelines.  This video has been provided as an overview of all aspects of managing Groups in Schoology.

To provide reminders to students, we recommend that you post an update in Schoology.  Additionally, students and parents may use email and messaging in Schoology. Please check your Schoology messages regularly to ensure you do not miss any messages.


Schoology Groups / Non-expiring Courses

Groups and Non-Expiring Courses can be created in Schoology for clubs, committees or working groups, with permission from the divisional Technology Coaches.  A teacher should be the Administrator of the group and monitor the group activity for inappropriate content and communication.  All messaging for school-based clubs should be done through Schoology, rather than through other platforms such as WhatsApp, and should adhere to the HKIS Social Media Policy.  Students cannot create groups independently and will need a teacher to manage their group.
