Everett Public Schools has adopted the Canvas Learning Management System (Canvas LMS) as a method for coordinating online resources. Canvas equips teachers and students with a dynamic, easily accessible content portal. The course structure allows teachers to pull together a wide range of instructional, assessment and feedback tools to engage students in individualized, small group, and whole-class learning. Staff, students and parents use their IDs or login names and their computer/LMS password.
Canvas Parent Access
Staff use Canvas to provide content, host discussions, online quizzes and link out to instructional resources and valuable websites. Logging in to the website gives parents a full view of the course and allows for setting up notifications. For quick view parents can use mobile app offered in both Android and IOS.
The Canvas Parent mobile app with its ease of use and readily available, accessible information is the simplest tool to use. A more complex option with more information and resources 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. Download Canvas Parent App from the phone's store.
