Reminder: Canvas Information Night for Parents

upcoming events

As a reminder, parents and guardians are invited to a Canvas Information Night from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 via Zoom. Canvas is the Issaquah School District's Learning Management System for students in grades 6-12. Through Canvas, students can access coursework, turn in assignments, and connect with their teacher(s) and classmates.

In Canvas, the "Observer" role provides parents and guardians an account to monitor their student's progress in their courses as well as support their students' learning at home. In order to protect the privacy of all students, observer accounts can only access their own children's work in Canvas. Therefore, it is important for family members to use their own observer account, rather than logging in as their student. 

A few examples of things observers can do include viewing the class calendar, seeing student grades, viewing assignment due dates, and view teacher feedback. Families will learn more about how their student's teachers use Canvas during curriculum night at individual schools. 

Sessions will be offered in English, Chinese, and Spanish.  Presentations in other languages are available upon request. This information night is designed to help families learn how to use Canvas. Register for the Sept. 20 virtual event: Canvas for Parents and Family Access Information Night (Grades 6-12) Sept 20, 2023.

For more information about Canvas and how to access your Family/Observer account please visit our website.
