Schoology

All middle school students utilize Schoology, an online learning platform, to monitor their weekly assignments, homework, and important due dates. Teachers communicate with their students each week via Schoology by posting a weekly agenda located on the student’s landing page for each course. The weekly agenda includes the weekly assignments and other important information. Teachers also post important due dates on the Schoology calendar.

Staying Organized

Freedom Crossing Academy teachers color code the weekly folder in PINK to help students stay organized. Core teachers create folders in Schoology named by the week and date (Ex: Week 1: August 10-14). Computer courses are named by Unit and date range Ex: Unit 1. The current weekly folder is located on the top and color-coded PINK. Folders in gray are previous lessons. This color coded system helps students and families quickly identify the weekly assignments for each course.

Uploading Documents

Students are responsible for making sure all Schoology assigned assignments are submitted successfully in Schoology. When uploading documents via Schoology, please name the document appropriately including student name, date, and heading if outside of using OneDrive. Students are responsible for contacting the teacher if an assignment will not submit.

Home Access Center

The Home Access Center (HAC) allows students and parents to view their child’s educational information via a secure password protected website, Android app, or iPhone app. Your child’s overall grade(s) are posted in the Home Access Center. This includes your child’s most current grades including missing assignments. The Home Access Center is also where parents can view their child’s interim grades and report card. Please check HAC, not Schoology, for your child’s final grades. Schoology is for individual assignment grades only.

 

Student HAC Account:

  • Students log in with their Active Directory username and password (S-number).  Students can check their grades and view classes and assignments using their HAC account information.

Parent HAC Account:

  • Parents can view their registered students when they use the parent log in. If you have questions about your HAC account, please call the front office at 547-4230 for assistance.

 Please visit the St. Johns County website to access the Home Access Center and for additional helpful resources.

Cell Phone Policy

Per the St. Johns County School District Student Code of Conduct, students may possess cellular telephones and other wireless communication devices at school, on buses, and at school functions. However, they must be turned off, stored in the student’s backpack, purse, or locker. The device shall now be used during the school day without administrative approval or on school buses to and from the school. Failure to comply may result in the device being confiscated (Student Code of Conduct, page 27)

At Freedom Crossing Academy, our middle school students may use their cell phones during school hours only when 1.)  Teacher directed for instructional purposes and 2.) Student purchases a LiveSchool pass to use his/her phone to listen to music during lunch only. Students must use wired headphones.


What is LiveSchool?

At Freedom Crossing Academy, we are committed to creating a learning environment where every student is recognized and rewarded for positive behavior using LiveSchool. Students will receive LiveSchool points for adhering to the FCA Behavior Expectations, known as the “FCA Way”- Focused on Safety, Committed to Responsibility, and Always Respectful and for demonstrating outstanding leadership and character during the school day. Middle School students can purchase Chick Fil A sandwiches, cell phone passes, elevator passes, spirit wear, and much more with their LiveSchool points.
