WHAT IS CANVAS?
Canvas is Webster Groves School District’s learning management system, which supports teaching and learning by connecting all of our digital tools in one place. This connection empowers teachers to transform the learning experience for students by making it more personalized, engaging and collaborative.
Students can check their course calendars, access materials and submit assignments. In addition, parents and guardians can access Canvas to view course calendars, grades and assignments.

CREATING A PARENT ACCOUNT
Please be aware that being a parent observer in Canvas is similar to looking out the window of a plane. You can see the ground but you can't make out all of the fine details. There may be times when you click a Canvas notification on your phone and it will result in a 503 error. This happens because you do not have a Webster Groves email account, and both Canvas and Google limit what you can see. If you need to see everything, we recommend logging in to Canvas using your student's account.
If you have any questions please complete the Canvas Q and A form.
