Canvas for Parent/Observer

  • CXP


    Attention Parents and Guardians,

    You can now view student content as an Observer in Canvas.  Canvas is a web-based learning management system (LMS) that teachers use in the classroom, to manage and deliver course content to students. Parents & guardians can create and link their Canvas account to their students’ account, so they can see:

    • Course content
    • Assignment due dates
    • Announcements

    Observers (parents or guardians) can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.


    To obtain access as an observer, a parent or guardian must:

    1. Obtain a student pairing code (from a student Canvas account) to create a Canvas Parent/Observer account
    2. Discover how to use your Canvas Parent/Observer account
    3. Download the App to use on your mobile device.
