Canvas

CCPS Transitioning from Google Classrooms to Canvas

Canvas is the new learning management system (LMS) that CCPS students and teachers are using in 2021-2022 to support face-to-face instruction and deliver remote instruction. Canvas streamlines all the digital tools and content that teachers and students love, for a simpler and more connected learning experience.  Assistance for students is located on our Student page of the website.

Parent Access

To access Canvas, parents can use the Canvas Parent App to create a Canvas Observer Account. The Canvas Parent app allows parents to engage in their children's education by providing access to important class information.

Please see THIS DOCUMENT as a resource for parents on accessing Parent Observer Accounts.

With the Canvas Observer account, parents CAN:

 View the list of courses where their students are enrolled. For each course, parents can see syllabus, assignments (title, due date, and instructions) and events.

 Set alerts to view course announcements and/or receive reminders for a specific assignment or event (sent to mobile devices as push notifications).

 Monitor their child’s performance on Canvas assignments (official grade reported in Infinite Campus).

With the Canvas Observer account, parents CANNOT:

 Submit assignments, participate in discussions or take quizzes on their child’s behalf.

 Access course content (files, pages, other students’ work, etc.)

 Participate in the course in any way.
