Canvas Learning Management System


The Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) is used by NS teachers as an extension to in-class instruction. Teachers using Canvas can post assignments, give feedback and communicate with students. Canvas can also serve as a one stop shop for digital tools and content.

Canvas Observer Logo Parents/Guardians can access Observer accounts to view grades, resources and activities posted in their child's courses. The Canvas Parent app can be installed on mobile devices (iOSAndroid) to make viewing more convenient. Observer accounts can:

  • View student grades
  • Read announcements
  • View the calendar
  • See the course syllabus
  • Access a list of assignments with due dates
  • See online assignments, but not discussion posts
  • Set up email or text notifications for announcements, assignments and more
