Not every student is the same. At Legacy Traditional Schools, we believe that with a high-quality education, students will be able to learn and succeed in any environment. And, as we continue to adapt our learning options in the midst of change, we remain committed to providing exceptional instruction to our students.
For the 2020-21 school year, Legacy students will experience an entirely different learning environment that integrates online learning as a critical part of their overall education experience.
Schoology is Legacy Traditional Schools’ learning management system (LMS). Schoology provides tools for instruction and assessment, and offers a communication and collaboration platform that brings together students, teachers, parents and administrators. All Legacy students will use Schoology as part of their learning experience.
With Schoology, students and parents have their own user accounts.
Students enrolled in Legacy’s online learning program will use Schoology to receive instruction, complete assignments and take tests and quizzes. Students will interact with their teachers through Schoology and will participate in discussions with other students. Online students will be required to log in to Schoology daily to track their attendance.
Students attending school in-person will use Schoology as a supplement to classroom instruction. Teachers will be able to provide additional learning resources for students on Schoology that they may access after school to improve their academic skills.

Students can use any of the following devices for online learning:
The online learning platform that we are going to use for the 2020-21 school year is Schoology. In order to access it, your child will need access to the internet. Here are some things to consider regarding your internet set-up:
Supported Internet Browsers
For the 2020-21 school year, all students will be required to use the online platform, Schoology, for at least part of the year. Legacy’s Loaner Laptop Program is designed to support families in need.
If a student is in need of a loaner laptop, they will be able to check one out from their school for the school year. At this time, please do not contact your school about loaning a laptop as we continue to refine the check out procedures. Additional information about this process will be shared soon.
Laptops will be available for pick-up by the first week of school at the latest.
