How to Access Schoology, Clever and other Technology
The information below will assist you and your student accessing school accounts and information. This page will be updated for the 2021-2022 school year as information changes.
Clever is our District’s new portal system. All parents and students have an account in Clever to help them get connected to all the other systems we will be using. Students and parents log into Clever differently.
Parents will log in to Clever at https://family.nsd.org.
The parent portal will give parents access to buttons for ParentVUE, Schoology, and other district systems. It also provides a method for helping students to get logged in on their device. This is called “Instant Login” and should be used only when a student has trouble logging themselves into Clever.
Parents were sent invitations to join Clever the week of August 17. If you did not receive your invitation, please visit https://family.nsd.org and click “Reset Password”. Enter the email associated with your Northshore account. An email will be sent with password reset information. If you have not received the email within 48 hours, please contact your school office.
Students will log in to Clever at https://my.nsd.org.
Student accounts follow this pattern: the username is their email address and their password is the password they ended last school year with or the default (for new students). Student accounts use the student’s ID number. If you do not know your student’s ID number please look at their information in ParentVUE. If you do not have a ParentVUE account, you can request an account and activation code here: https://form.jotform.com/200321140182132
Username is email@example.com, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Their password is the password they used last year. If they don’t remember that password, a staff member can reset their password for them.
New student in grades K-3:
Username is email@example.com, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Their password is their student id number followed by “nsd”. For example, 4444444nsd.
New student in grades 4-12:
Username is email@example.com, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Their password is their 8-digit birthdate, for example 04042010.
Schoology is our district’s new Learning Management System. It replaces systems that were used last year to distribute class assignments and learning materials, such as Google Classroom. All parents have access to an account in Schoology to monitor student progress, view course materials and assignments, and communicate with teachers.
To login to Schoology, parents will login to Clever (https://family.nsd.org) and click on the Schoology for Parents tile. Enter your email and password. If you have not activated your account, click “Forgot your password” on the Schoology login screen. Enter the email associated with your Northshore account. An email will be sent with password reset information. If you have not received the email within 48 hours, please contact your school office.
Students will log into Schoology by logging into Clever (https://my.nsd.org) and clicking on the Schoology tile.
Commonly Reported Issues:
I cannot see all of my children in Clever/Schoology.
This is likely due to incomplete information in Synergy, our student information system. Please log into ParentVUE and review the information associated with your account to ensure that you can see all children and have all contact and educational rights to all of your students. If that information is correct, please contact your school’s main office to research further.
I never received an email invitation to Clever and/or Schoology.
Check your email spam and junk folders to ensure that the emails didn’t get misplaced. If you still don’t see those invitations, visit Clever and/or Schoology and use the “Reset My Password” or “Forgot your password” links to generate a new email from one or both systems.
Northshore is providing ongoing opportunities to learn about our Remote Learning model and to gain an understanding of these new systems and getting started with Clever and Schoology. We are actively updating our website with information based on questions we are getting from our community.
