For Parents

PowerSchool & Canvas Parent Portals (beginning 10-1-14)

 

PowerSchool offers real-time access to grades, attendance, and class information.  In order to create a parent/guardian account, click “Create Account” on the PowerSchool homepage and then follow the prompts. You will be able to link all of your students to this one account.

 

 

Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) that teachers use as a tool to enhance your child’s learning and to provide continual access to classroom tools. In order to create a parent observer account in Canvas, please go to the Canvas homepage and click on the link that says “Need a Canvas account?” and then follow the prompts. Again, you will be able to link all of your students to this one account.

Important Note: in Canvas, the courses are NOT sorted by student. You will just see a list of all courses in which your student(s) are registered. Also, during this initial setup you will receive an e-mail from each teacher’s course when you first join (this may mean many e-mails if you have many students).
