The purpose of this action research is to investigate the needs and opportunities for high school math teachers pertaining to the adoption of Schoology, a learning management system (LMS). Data was gathered from 98 students, 13 teachers, 24 parents/families and 8 technology integration experts in an effort to gain a multitude of perspectives relating to Schoology use at the high school level. The information gathered from these four groups was analyzed and used to make suggestions regarding how teachers or schools navigate the first year of LMS use. This data was gathered over a period of eight weeks through Google Forms questionnaires, email questionnaires, and a student focus group session. The results show that students, teachers, parents and technology integration experts have both shared and unique concerns, desires, and suggestions pertain to Schoology use in their setting.
