Technology Tips

When logging into your district issued chromebook, Clever or Schoology, your student will use their school issued email address and email password.  

Students will be using Schoology for assignments and class related items.

It is best practice for students to access Schoology through their Clever account.  This prevents students from using an incorrect link.  On district issued chromebooks, in the Chrome browser bookmark bar, you will see an item on the left labeled “ Bookmarks”.  When you click that link you will see a shortcut to Clever.

If using a personal device, students will still use their school email and password to access Clever and Schoology.  We have links for both available on our website. In the top bar, click the Quick Links option and then choose Student Resources.


If you can't remember your Holly Area Schools email address and password, please contact your student's main office for assistance.

Are you using Clever to access your Schoology account?

If you are on your own device, are you using the correct Clever and Schoology links?

Are you using your school email and school email password to access the accounts?

Don't remember your email address or password?  Contact your building's main office staff for assistance.  

If you have tried multiple times to log in, your account may be locked.  Contact your building's main office staff to assist.

Having issues signing into your chromebook?

Are you using your Holly Area Schools email address and password?
