Using Canvas for Parents & Students
In Fall 2020, students will log into Zoom for live synchronous instruction with teachers and classmates. They will also use Canvas, a Learning Management System, that serves as a virtual classroom or hub, holding all class assignments, activities, quizzes, tests, and more. Students and teachers can also communicate with each other via Canvas. We hope that these two tools will offer teachers, students and parents a streamlined approach to teaching and learning this fall.
Students may access their Canvas classes through Clever, or through the waffle (the grid of nine small grey boxes on the top right) on their student Gmail account. They will enter the Canvas portal by clicking the orange sunburst icon labeled “Canvas.”
Parents can access Canvas by visiting https://u46.instructure.com/login/canvas
