Important Notes about web version of Parent Canvas Accounts:

  • 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.

  • Canvas does have grades listed but these grades only represent assignments/quizzes that have been graded within Canvas. Canvas does not include assignments/quizzes/tests completed outside of the Canvas tool.  To see overall grades for your child you will need to look in PowerSchool.
