Canvas Access for Parents

  • Did you know that Parents and Guardians can create a Canvas account and sign up as an observer in Canvas? Observers can link their Canvas account to their student’s account so they can see assignment due dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

    This guide is for parents to set up a Canvas account to observe their students in their courses. To observe a student, you must have a student pairing code. The guide will show you how to get one and sign up for a parent account.

    Once you have an account, you can view student information through a Canvas Parent mobile app. Please use the written instructions below or this video to set up a parent/guardian Canvas account.

    Here are the full instructions: Parent/Guardian Instructions
