5. Powerschool/Checking your grades:

  • Apps are now available for parents and students to access PowerSchool information such as grades and attendance.
  • The apps PowerSchool for Parents and PowerSchool for Students were created by Pearson for iPads and iPhones.
  • Parents will need their LexConnect information if they do not already have it and they must create a PowerSchool account to use the app if they have not already done so.
  • The LexConnect login page now includes the PowerSchool for Parents Guide to aid parents in setting up the PowerSchool for Parents app on their iPad or iPhone. A Spanish version is included.
  • Click here for directions on how to navigate PowerSchool Apps.

Students: Go to powerschool.lexington1.net/public/home.html (ignore that it says parent login) Use the Powerschool username and password that was sent to you by email at the beginning of school.

Parents: You can easily access your student’s grades and attendance using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. You can find this same link to the Parent Portal on the Parents page of our website.

If you have not already created a PowerSchool Lexington One parent account, you can use the “Create Account” link on the PowerSchool parent login page.

Once you create your PowerSchool parent account, you will need an Access ID and password for each of your children in order to view their grades and attendance. You can get those Access IDs and passwords from each of their schools.

Be sure to set the “Email Notification” settings, while you are in the PowerSchool Parent Portal, if you would like to receive emails with information about your child’s grades and/or attendance.

6. Schoology© 

As part of Lexington County School District One’s commitment to providing 21st century learning tools for our teachers and students, we have begun using Schoology© as our district learning management system in grades 6–12. In fact, Schoology© will replace Edmodo as our learning management system in grades 6–12. This transition will take place during the first semester of this academic year.

Schoology© is a dynamic platform that allows teachers and students to work digitally and communicate with each other on both computers and mobile devices. With Schoology©, students can submit homework assignments, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take assessments and collaborate with their peers. Teachers will monitor student progress and activity to ensure a safe, secure and controlled environment. Parents will also have access to the system and be able to view teacher and student activity.

Your student has been given login credentials and has begun using Schoology©. Use your school username and AApassword.

You can create a Schoology© parent account and view your student’s account and activity at https://www.schoology.com/home.php. You can find instructions for using this parent access code to create your Schoology© parent account here: https://support.schoology.com/hc/en-us/articles/201000823-Sign-Up-Parent-.

By following this link, you can also find directions for navigating your account: https://support.schoology.com/hc/en-us/articles/201000833-Home-Page-Parents-.

We are very excited about this dynamic, intuitive, and user-centric learning management solution and hope that you find it helpful.

**When using the Schoology app choose Lexington High with the zip code 29072-2215.**
