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.
