Logging into Schoology/Zoom

You MUST log in through the student portal page of the Dearborn Schools website.

Do NOT use the Schoology App. 

  • It doesn’t have access to the district provided domains and resources. It’ll redirect you to the Global Zoom site and not the Dearborn Zoom site which is restricted to Dearborn School Users. So that will cause an error. 

So…  

Step 1: Go to www.dearbornschools.org

Step 2: Click <Home> tab in the heading banner, then <Student Portal>from the drop down menu.

Step 3: Click on Schoology. It will ask you to login with your Dearborn email address

  • (Student number)@dearbornschools.org
  • Student’s password
  • If you can’t log in —call the Help Desk at 313-827-3003

Step 4:Once logged in you should see your Schoology Homepage: Click <Courses>

Step 5: Click on our class tile.

Step 6: Click on the Zoom meeting link at the top. (or find the link under updates)

If the trouble persists, please call the Help Desk at 313-827-3003.

Schoology

Schoology logo

Students and Parents will be using Schoology as the place to start. Students can log in being Monday morning. (Parent accounts will be coming soon). Students should log in using their Google Accounts. Students who have borrowed a Chromebook from the district should have two tabs load upon sign-in: the district student portal web page and their Schoology page.

Within Schoology, students should find the links and instructions that they need. Links to Zoom meetings will be added by teachers.

Start of the New School Year

As the new school year is approaching, there will be some changes to how we communicate student placement. This year, in order to help our community avoid large gatherings, class lists will not be posted. Instead, our classroom teachers will be e-mailing or calling the parents/guardians of students in their class. We will be having virtual orientation next week and classroom teachers will be sharing information about themselves, their class, and the focus for the upcoming school year via our classroom blogs.

Start of the school year changes

Dearborn students will get to sleep a little later during district-wide online school and ease into the new school year with half days for the first week under recent changes to the school calendar.

Classes for all Dearborn Public School students will be a half day for the week of Monday, August 31 to Thursday, September 3. (Friday, Sept. 4, is a day off for the district.) The four half days will give staff additional time to learn new online teaching tools, including the Schoology and Zoom software that all teachers and students will be using during online instruction.

To make up for some of the half days, the district is eliminating the first three late starts planned for this year.  Class will now resume at the regular time on September 23, October 14 and December 9.

The district is also adjusting its school hours during online learning.  High schools, middle schools, kindergarten to 8th grade buildings, and both Salina schools will start class at 8:15 a.m. with the school day ending at 3:10 p.m. and half days ending at 11:10 a.m. All other elementary schools will start class at 8:55 a.m. and finish by 3:50 p.m. on a regular online day and at noon on a half day.

Middle and high school students will have their first to third hour classes on Aug. 31 and Sept. 2 and their fourth through sixth hour courses Sept. 1 and 3.

All the new schedule changes apply to both the traditional and Virtual Learning Program students.   When the district returns to the school in the buildings, start times for all students will revert back to the traditional hours, generally 7:20 for high school, 8 a.m. for middle school and 8:40 for elementary. Students in the Virtual Learning Program will also move back to the traditional start times. 

“With all students starting the year online, we do not have to worry about daily busing.  Without busing, we can adjust our class schedules to make it a little easier for students, especially the high school teens whom we know would rather not be in class at 7:20 each morning,” said Superintendent Glenn Maleyko.

Administrators worked with the Dearborn Federation of Teachers to adjust the school calendar.  The changes still need official approval by the Board of Education, but that is expected to happen at their next meeting on Monday, Aug. 24.  District calendars can be found at https://dearbornschools.org/services/district-calendars/.

Dearborn Public Schools is starting online for the entire district at least until Oct. 1.  The Board will reevaluate conditions in September to see if students can begin to shift back to more in-building learning.  Students in the Virtual Learning Program signed up to take classes online for the entire school year.

During online learning, students will still be expected to participate in live class every day.  How those school days will look, especially for the elementary students, is still being finalized. 

“We know this school year is bringing with it a lot of changes.  We appreciate the patience from our parents, families and staff as we make adjustments to serve our students the best we can in the unprecedented environment created by COVID-19,” Dr. Maleyko said.

Food Distribution Changes!

Dearborn Public Schools families are reminded that the meal distribution schedule will have a few changes starting the week of May 18 – the week before Memorial Day.

Because schools were scheduled to be closed on Friday and Monday for Memorial Day weekend, there will be no food distribution on May 22 and 25.

Meal distributions will still occur on Monday May 18 and on Wednesday May 20.  The May 20 distribution will include breakfasts and lunches for a full week, so families should be prepared to carry the larger quantity, including a half gallon of milk per student.

Through May 20 pickup times will continue to be later at four locations. Fordson High School, Woodworth Middle School, Salina Intermediate and McCollough Elementary will distribute meals from noon to 2 p.m.

Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School and Smith Middle School will hand out meals from 10 a.m. to noon.

The week after Memorial Day, meal distribution will go back to 10 a.m. to noon at all seven locations. Meals that week will be distributed on Wednesday, May 27 and Friday, May 29.

Dearborn Public Schools has been providing 65,000 grab-and-go meals a week for our students.

One person can pick up food for any student living in the home.  The child does not need to attend that school.  Each bag contains breakfast and lunch for the days until the next pickup.

The grab-and-go meals are provided free to families through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch Program. Through the program, Dearborn Public Schools offered free lunch and breakfast to all kindergarten to 12th grade students before schools were closed to slow the spread of novel coronavirus.

Meal distribution schedule:

May 11, 13, 15, 18 and 20

Meals distributed from 10 a.m. to noon at Dearborn High School, Edsel Ford High School and Smith Middle School and from noon to 2 p.m. at Fordson High School, Woodworth Middle School, Salina Intermediate and McCollough Elementary.

NO DISTRIBUTIONS MAY 22 AND 25

May 27 and 29 and June 1, 3, 5, 8 and 10

Meals distributed from 10 a.m. to noon at all seven locations.
