Free Account vs District Account

I’m hoping you can help me.  I signed up for a free Schoology account in either 2016 or 2017.  I used my school email address for this account,  My district finally purchased a license in 2020 and because I used my school email address, my free account was merged into the district account. My district is suffering a budget crisis and although they are purchasing powerschool, they are dropping Schoology.  I am desperate to keep my account.  Is there a way I can keep my account? I tried setting up a new account, using a new email address,  It isn’t working for Schoology, it only seems to work for signing in to the Powerschool community. 


I’d be so grateful for any assistance that could be offered.  I’ve been a longtime user and it’s been a terrific asset for my lessons and my students.

@msbutlerschoology I don't think Schoology offers the free accounts anymore. The only way to keep your Schoology account is through the school district.
