Parent Access fo Schoology

Starting August 23, 2021, parents will be able to log in to Focus (BCPS’s Student Information System) and Schoology (BCPS’s Learning Management System). In order to sign up, parents will need to create a parent account with the same email address that they provided to their school and as long as the parent is marked in Focus as having educational access, they will gain access to their student’s information (the system takes up to 30 minutes to process these accounts). Within 48 hours, their parent connection in Schoology will be established. There is a link within Focus that will take parents directly to Schoology. If a parent clicks the Schoology link before the connection is established, the parent will receive an error message.  Parents can contact their school to resolve any issues with this process. 


Meet BCPS Face of the Week: Marcellis McQueen, Rising Randallstown Senior

“Randallstown has a family feel, and I appreciate every moment of it. You can talk to any teacher, any staff person. They all really care. There is something for everyone at our school.” - Marcellis McQueen
Marcellis C. McQueen


As early as Grade 1, Marcellis was determined to become an educator, like his mother. The only issue was that he never saw male teachers. Not in elementary school. Not as he began middle school. 

But as his education continued, opportunities to join Educators Rising at (then) Old Court Middle School, meeting diverse male educators at Randallstown High School, connecting with mentors such as Douglas Handy, now executive director of equity and cultural proficiency, and participating in programs like the Black Male Teachers College at Bowie State University, have steadied Marcellis on the course toward becoming an educator and advocate.

Handy says of Marcellis, "His goal is to be a teacher, and he will be amazing: igniting fire in his students and helping them to set goals and work toward them. I know this because he is modeling it right now.”

Learn more about Marcellis and his story in the newest Face of the Week blog post.
