Linking Parent Accounts Across Different Organizations

What Is Linking Accounts?

Since parents must have an account at each of the Schoology organizations in which their children are enrolled, you may have multiple Schoology accounts. For example, if one child is enrolled in a high school in one district but another is at a middle school in a different district, or if one child is in college and one in high school, you must have an account in each organization, and link the accounts to toggle between them.

By keeping both accounts and linking them together, you can access all content from a single location. This feature also allows each organization to manage your parent account settings appropriately, and to communicate with you separately.

Note: If you have two children who attend different schools but are in the same Schoology Enterprise account–for example, one child in high school and one in middle school in the same district–you do not have to link accounts.
