Canvas for Parents
Welcome to Canvas, a Learning Management System
In our continuing efforts to partner with parents for the academic success of students, the district is providing parents with the ability to access Canvas. Canvas is the Learning Management System being used at the middle school and high school.
Middle and high school parents can use the link above to log into Canvas. The District hopes that this resource will provide you with specific information about your student’s curricula, so you have a better understanding of the work that teachers and students are doing. We hope you use this information to communicate to students that the skills and content identified in these courses are important to master. In addition, we hope this information provides parents with an opportunity to ask students to share ideas and opinions about what is being learned.
Features in Canvas
When you access Canvas, you will be able to see for each of your students:
- feedback on assignments (if appropriate)
- grades on individual assignments
Home Access will continue to be the official record for student grades. Parents should continue to use Home Access to monitor their student’s progress in each of the courses.
Canvas Observer Accounts (for Parents)
In order for parents to create Canvas observer account, students need to generate a pairing code. Student(s) will need to open the Safari browser on their iPad, navigate to lz95.instructure.com, and sign in with their Canvas username and password.
Step 1: Student Generates a Pairing Code using Safari browser
Step 2: Parent Creates Their Observer Account Using That Pairing Code
Parents can then create their accounts using the pairing code from a computer web browser. Parents will use the same website (lz95.instructure.com).
