Canvas Use at KMMS
Canvas is used:
- In 6,7, and 8th grade house areas (not using the Summit Learning Platform)
- For Elective Courses including: FACS, PhyEd, STEM, Computer Science
Parent recommendations for accessing / monitoring
- As a parent you may want to limit your focus to the calendar due dates and any feedback that your student may receive.
- Success is found when a student logs into the platform and has a conversation around the learning. This builds student ownership and increases parent understanding of the context.
- Note: Parent account access does not provide access to all Google documents due to privacy and copyright restrictions. If you would like to view your student’s progress on a specific document please have your student sign into the platform to show you his/her work.
Create Your Parent Account
When you sign up for a parent account in Canvas, it gives you access to see:
- Student assignments and calendar
- Student Feedback/Progress
You will need a pairing code from your student's account to create your parent account.
Please view the video below for instructions to create an account.
