Use CANVAS To Observe Your Student's Progress

We are excited to announce the districtwide implementation of Canvas, an online learning management system (LMS).

The use of a common LMS provides efficiency and consistency for accessing instructional resources for teachers, students, and parents.

A centralized resource - that houses learning resources in one, easily accessible location - builds familiarity for students beginning in the early grades, continuing through their career in Pewaukee Schools. Parents are able to observe course-related information regarding student progress as an observer in Canvas courses, and stay up-to-date via personalized notification settings. ​ ​

This is a long-term commitment and the district will provide training and support for staff, students, and parents to grow their expertise with the use of the system.​ ​We​ ​strongly​ ​urge​ ​all​ ​parents​ ​to​ ​create​ ​an Observer​ ​Account​ ​in​ ​Canvas,​ ​as​ ​Canvas​ ​will​ ​be​ ​the​ ​main​ ​communication​ ​tool​ ​for​ ​all
global​ ​class/course​ ​announcements,​ ​reminders,​ ​important​ ​dates,​ ​etc.​

​For​ ​step-by-step instructions​ ​on​ ​creating​ ​an​ ​Observer​ Account,​ ​please​ ​go​ ​to: http://tiny.cc/CanvasParent-PSD
