What is Canvas?

Canvas is the district Learning Management System (LMS). Canvas allows teachers to facilitate, document, and track learning in an online environment.

Parents and Guardians can use Canvas to see important class information including assignments, due dates, assignment feedback, and more using their Canvas Observer Account.

How is Canvas different from Infinite Campus?

Canvas will provide a more detailed look at your student’s education and will have the most up-to-date grade information. Use Canvas to see assignment details, view teacher feedback, and engage with your students’ teachers. Infinite Campus will show all student grades in one location. Use Infinite Campus for an overview, a “check engine light,” and use Canvas to “take a look under the hood.”  



What is a Canvas “Observer” Account?

Parents and Guardians are automatically given an Observer Account when their student is enrolled in a Canvas course.  See below for directions on how to access this account for the first time.  As an Observer you are given “read-only” access to your student’s courses and are able to engage with their teachers through the messaging feature.
