Parent/Observer Access to Canvas

​Parents and guardians can view student content as an Observer in Canvas.  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; (Students will have to retrieve the pairing code)
  • Create an account in Canvas; and
  • Use the student pairing code to gain Observer access to published student course


Below are resources to guide parents on the setup process:



I highly suggest you familiarize yourself with the steps if a parent asks you for assistance. This information will also be available on the school website.
