Canvas Parent Access
Everett Public Schools has adopted the Canvas Learning Management System (Canvas LMS) as a method for coordinating online resources and instruction for students and managing annoucements.
Primary users for this tool are at our high schools though we continue to more staff adopting Canvas in our middle and elementary schools. With the growth in use of this platform, Learning Management Services is connecting current guardians using their LMS log in as observers within Canvas.
Logins to the Canvas Parent mobile app and website Canvas version is the LMS guardian login which is the same as the login for Gradebook, Home Access Center, Blackboard Connect, and the district website. If you do not know your LMS log in - please email LMS@everettsd.org.

Canvas Parent App
Staff may use Canvas to provide content, host discussions, online quizzes and link out to instructional resources and valuable websites. The best option for parents to view Canvas is through the mobile apps offered in both Android and IOS for teachers, students, and parents.
The log in for the Canvas Parent App will be the parent's LMS login which is also used for Gradebook, Home Access Center, Blackboard Connect, and the district website. If you do not know your LMS log in - please email LMS@everettsd.org.

Canvas Parent Access via Web Browser
The Canvas Parent mobile app with its eases of use and readily accsible information is the simplest tool to use. A more complex option is parent access using the online web version. The view is similar to students but more limited and combines all children into a single view.

One time set up of notifications through emails will provide more directed information from the website version of Canvas.
