eAcademy students may take online courses in two different learning management systems (platforms): Schoology and Buzz. Courses in Schoology are created by our local teachers and the course name ends with - SC. We supplement our courses with vendor courses created by Accelerate Education or Pearson Connexus. These courses are hosted on the Buzz platform.

The image below is the Genius Dashboard. You can see quite a bit of information at a glance on this screen.

  • Academic Snapshot: Displays the course names and current cumulative grades to date. To see the student’s quarter (9-week) grades, scroll down this document to learn more about the Report Card report.

  • Upcoming Events: Displays the eAcademy calendar events.

  • Messages: Displays any new messages sent to the student or you.
