These common troubleshooting tips may help you:

  • Having trouble logging into Schoology?  View this video tutorial.

  • Issues logging into your laptop after resetting your password? -  Your laptop remembers the last password you used from an FCPS building.  In order to sign in to your laptop with your new password you will need to sign in from an FCPS building.  If you live close to a school or if you want to come to Hayfield, you can remain in your car and just be parked close to the building.  Restart the computer a couple times and then login.  This will sync the laptop and allow you to login with the new password.

  • If you are experiencing a licensing error you may try going to any FCPS site (any school you live closest to or Hayfield) remain in your vehicle parked close to the building.  You do not need to go inside.  Restart the computer a couple times and then login.

  • Microphone and camera issues are the most common request for help.  Ensure that Google Chrome has been set to allow the microphone and camera by opening a site like Blackboard Collaborate Ultra that uses the camera and microphone.  Look for the camera icon in the upper right of the Chrome window.  Choose allow camera and microphone.  If it still doesn't work, click manage to open the chrome setting and ensure that camera and mic are not blocked.
