Canvas Tips

  • Always use Google Chrome; some features don’t work in other browsers.
  • Use Canvas to submit all assignment instead of emailing to your child’s teacher. By going through Canvas, you can check that it was submitted on your end and that your teacher receives it to be graded.
  • Use the Calendar, To Do List, and Feedback tools to help keep organized with assignments.
  • Remember, grades will be found in ParentVue. Canvas will show if activities are submitted and sometimes have comments, but the grade for the activity will go into ParentVue.
