Canvas Learning Management System
The Canvas LMS provides a seamless environment for students, teachers, and parents to access course content, assignments/assessments, grades, and attendance, along with the integration of additional technology tools such as OneDrive and Office 365. This brief video highlights the system’s benefits.
Canvas Parent Account
To set up a parent account, which takes only a couple of minutes, parents need the student ID (5 or 6 digits) and GTID (10 digits) for each of their children, who all can be added to one Canvas parent account. These IDs can be obtained from the school’s front office. Canvas parent accounts must be created on a desktop or laptop computer.
