Canvas Guides

Secondary schools and programs (grades 6–12) use Canvas as their learning management system (LMS) or online classroom space. Teachers communicate information about class instruction and assignments through this platform. Students can access this space using their district email and password. Look for the link to Canvas in the “waffle” after students log in to their Google Drive. In addition, families can monitor their student’s progress using the Canvas Parent App for mobile devices.
