• Parents can create an account using a free app that allows parents to 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. Parents will have the ability to use the Inbox to message teachers. This guide is for parents who would like access to Canvas to observe their students’ progress  in their courses.
