Parent Access to Canvas

In our continuing efforts to partner with parents for the academic success of students, Jordan School District is providing parents with access to Canvas to observe their student’s progress. Canvas is the Learning Management System being used throughout the district.

We hope that this resource will:

  • Provide parents with more specific information about their student’s curricula, so they have better insight into the work that teachers and students are doing in the classroom.
  • Provide more meaningful information that may be used to improve conversations concerning academic progress between parents and students.

When parents access Canvas, they will be able to see:

  • course syllabus
  • course assignments
  • feedback on assignments (if appropriate)
  • grades on individual assignments

IMPORTANT: The total grade in Canvas may be different than the term grade in Skyward. Skyward will continue to be the official record for student grades and all official Jordan School District communication. Parents should continue to use Skyward to monitor their student’s progress in each of the courses.
