PowerSchool & Schoology Sign-up Instructions

PowerSchool is the student management system for Glenbard District 87 and contains all student grade and attendance data. Students and families may view grades, scores, and schedules in PowerSchool.

Schoology is our learning management system that enables our students, families and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond. With Schoology, students may view course materials, submit homework assignments, review grades, participate in discussions, receive announcements, provide feedback, take tests, and more. Families may view their students’ activity within Schoology, including homework, due dates and other important class information.
