What is Canvas?

Canvas Learning Management System


Cherokee County School District launched a Learning Management System called Canvas for all students, parents and teachers in the 2017-18 school-year.

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.

Using Canvas

For more information on using Canvas, please see our self-paced Orientation Courses (no username or password is required to view either course):

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.
