What is Canvas?

The Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) is used by many middle and high school teachers as an extension to in-class instruction. Teachers using Canvas can post assignments, give feedback, and communicate with students.

Canvas Information

Setting up your Canvas account

  • If you already have a ParentVUE account, a Canvas parent account has been created for you. Use these instructions to request a Canvas password.
    • If you need to reset your ParentVUE password, instructions can be found on our ParentVUE page.
  • If you do not have a ParentVUE account, it is easy to sign up! Follow the instructions on our ParentVUE page.
    • After our ParentVUE account is created, a Canvas parent/guardian account will be automatically generated within 24 hours.
  • If you had a previous Canvas parent/guardian account you may receive an email from Canvas asking if you would like to merge them together
    • You may merge them by selecting the Parent/Guardian button above. Next, click on Forgot Password and complete the information.

What are the benefits of having a Canvas account?

Parents or guardians do not need a Canvas account to monitor student progress. You can continue to use ParentVUE. However, you can create a Canvas account to view more detailed assignment information, view feedback and communicate with the teacher.

Canvas Parent App

For Parents/Guardians wanting to connect on the go, the Canvas Parent app is a streamlined mobile application that provides access to important class information (Calendar, Assignments, and Announcements).  For a Canvas experience similar to your student(s) we recommend using the full Canvas website. 

The Canvas Parent app is available for BSD parents using iOS or Android devices.
