It gives you insight through parent co-enrollment.
You’re co-enrolled in Canvas K-12 with your student automatically. That means you can view grades, upcoming assignments and due dates, missing work, and teacher communication. Teachers can send individual, group, and course-wide messages to students and parents and your students can also communicate safely with teachers and each other.
It gives your student (and you) anytime, anywhere access.
Canvas K-12 can be accessed anytime on any browser-enabled device from anywhere—at school, on the bus, or at home. Students can create content in Canvas K-12 and collaborate effectively with peers and teachers. Studies show that online collaboration tools help boost student engagement while reducing disciplinary actions and dropout rates.
