Canvas: Learning Management System
Canvas is the district-wide learning management system (LMS) for publishing instructional information online. It is highly interactive, offering instructors a central online resource to provide students with access to all of their course-related materials (e.g. assignments, lecture recordings, quizzes/exams). It also offers a robust set of features including simple site design, the ability to send announcements or hold discussions, easy incorporation of media, accessible learning analytics, and online grading capabilities. The district-wide implementation of Canvas is designed to ensure consistency of teaching, learning, and equity throughout the district in all grades K-12.
83 school teams have been trained:
• Curriculum developers are creating custom CCS courses to support teachers in core content areas
• Parent/Student School Training Days: Students and families should learn about Canvas and obtain the login and access course information during the classroom level orientation
• Parent and student preview sessions will be uploaded to the re-entry webpage
• District required professional learning days will focus on Canvas along with other remote learning expectations
