Secondary Canvas

Students in 7th through 12th grades will be using Canvas as their Learning Management System (LMS).

A learning management system, or LMS, is students' "homebase," where all learning starts. It allows teachers to provide students and families with course information and weekly/daily schedules, to share lessons and instructional/supplemental content, to distribute assignments and receive submitted assignments, and to evaluate assignments and provide students with feedback. It is a "one stop shop" that will include all links to Zoom meetings and teacher/student messaging.

The videos, links, and information below explain how to access and use Canvas.
