CANVAS for Parent/Guardian Observer Accounts

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. Observers can link their Canvas account to their students’ account, so they can see course content, assignment due dates, and announcements. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course. To gain access as an Observer, a parent or guardian must:

  • Obtain a student pairing code;
  • Create an account in Canvas; and
  • Use the student pairing code to gain Observer access to published student courses.

You may click on the link below for step-by-step instructions, videos, and how-to-guides.

Our teachers are working diligently to publish their course information, so please be patient as they transition to the new platform. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the school if assistance is needed.  The campus contact person is: Mrs. J. Rogers, Campus Instructional Technologist @ 713-688-1361.
