We are exploring Schoology now. I used Schoology from 2013-2016. I liked lots of the features - you can post discussion questions on classroom wall, you can post quizzes and tests that students take online, those quizzes and tests get stored for later use so you can collect "Resources" for easy repeated access, you can store grades, there's a mobile app, etc. The reason I stopped using it was because I found a way to do all those things with Google Classroom, which aligned itself with my work even more easily. It created folders in my Google Drive with those resources; I can post discussion questions and quizzes; now you can go into "Quiz Mode" which blocks all other Internet tabs while you're taking a quiz so you can't cheat; there's a gradebook; a mobile app, easy access to Google Meet and Hangouts from within Classroom, etc.... and it’s free. I’m curious what these other LMSs offer that Google doesn’t, and for what cost. I know Schoology syncs with PowerSchool which is nice. What else can’t Google do?

Quiz mode will work on other devises. You can set it, though, to only work on a Chromebooks.

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?

Is a sufficiently explained 'not a cultural fit' adequate here? Will they even care? I also doubt my practice line would approve the transfer since we're understaffed.
