Clever is our District’s portal system for student and parent technology access. All parents and students have an account in Clever to help them get connected to all the other systems we will be using. Students and parents log into Clever differently.
Parents will log in to Clever at https://family.nsd.org.
The parent portal will give parents access to buttons for ParentVUE, Schoology, and other district systems. It also provides a method for helping students to get logged in on their device. This is called “Instant Login” and should be used only when a student has trouble logging themselves into Clever.
Parents were sent invitations to join Clever the week of August 17. If you did not receive your invitation, please visit https://family.nsd.org and click “Reset Password”. Enter the email associated with your Northshore account. An email will be sent with password reset information. If you have not received the email within 48 hours, please contact your school office.
Students will log in to Clever at https://my.nsd.org.
Student accounts follow this pattern: the username is their email address and their password is the password they ended last school year with or the default (for new students). Student accounts use the student’s ID number. If you do not know your student’s ID number please look at their information in ParentVUE. If you do not have a ParentVUE account, you can request an account and activation code here: https://form.jotform.com/200321140182132
Username is email@example.com, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Their password is the password they used last year. If they don’t remember that password, a staff member can reset their password for them. At Woodinville High School, students should email Dione Garcia at email@example.com or Heidi Lundberg at firstname.lastname@example.org for student password support.
New student in grades K-3:
Username is email@example.com, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Their password is their student id number followed by “nsd”. For example, 4444444nsd.
New student in grades 4-12:
Username is email@example.com, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
Their password is their 8-digit birthdate, for example 04042010.
Schoology is our district’s Learning Management System implemented in the 2020-21 school year. It replaces systems that were used in prior years to distribute class assignments and learning materials, such as Google Classroom. All parents have access to an account in Schoology to monitor student progress, view course materials and assignments, and communicate with teachers.
To login to Schoology, parents will login to Clever (https://family.nsd.org) and click on the Schoology for Parents tile. Enter your email and password. If you have not activated your account, click “Forgot your password” on the Schoology login screen. Enter the email associated with your Northshore account. An email will be sent with password reset information. If you have not received the email within 48 hours, please contact your school office.
Students will log into Schoology by logging into Clever (https://my.nsd.org) and clicking on the Schoology tile.
Commonly Reported Issues
I cannot see all of my children in Clever/Schoology.
This is likely due to incomplete information in Synergy, our student information system. Please log into ParentVUE and review the information associated with your account to ensure that you can see all children and have all contact and educational rights to all of your students. If that information is correct, please contact your school’s main office to research further.
I never received an email invitation to Clever and/or Schoology.
Check your email spam and junk folders to ensure that the emails didn’t get misplaced. If you still don’t see those invitations, visit Clever and/or Schoology and use the “Reset My Password” or “Forgot your password” links to generate a new email from one or both systems.
Error when linking Google Drive to Schoology
One of the most common problems we have seen is students getting an error message when they try to link their Google Drive to Schoology. Here is a quick video from the District about this:
