    Password: first initial + middle initial + last initial + birth month + birthday + birth year + @

    CANVAS PARENT ACCOUNTS

    What Is Canvas?

    Canvas is a learning management system (LMS) that allows teachers to provide instructional support, class calendars, assignments and resources for students in a safe online environment. For traditional face to face classes, Canvas is an integral part of sharing blended classroom instruction.

    Parents can sign up as an observer on Canvas, the Learning Management System (LMS) used as the preferred electronic delivery and work management system for Paulding County Schools. Since I have published my courses, parents will have access to observe their student's class, but only an observer. I use Canvas as my delivery and communication system, so please consider signing up and becoming part of the class. Parents will need some information from your student (username and password) to link to their account, but students use this every day in my class so they can provide it.

    What Can Parents Do in Canvas? Depending on the individual course set-up, parents will be able to:

    1. Set notifications

    2. Preview and download some files

    3. View the dashboard

    4. View the modules page

    5. View the course syllabus

    6. View discussion prompts but not participate

    7. View the calendar

    8. View but not submit assignments

    * Please note that Infinite Campus is Paulding County School District's official grade book. The grade feature is reflective of only the work submitted in Canvas; therefore, the grades displayed in the Canvas gradebook are not the actual grades for a course. Check your Infinite Campus Parent Portal Account for up to date course grades.

    How will Parents Access Canvas?

    The link to the Canvas login is located at www.paulding.k12.ga.us/canvas. Please remember to bookmark the Canvas login website for future quick and easy access.

    1. Click on the link “Parent of a Canvas User? Click Here for an Account.”

    2. Enter your information and your child's username/password. For middle school students, set up your account using the username and password that your child uses to access school computers. Visit http://www.paulding.k12.ga.us/Page/28792 for detailed

    directions on creating and using observer (parent) accounts. If you are experiencing trouble with your login or password, please contact your child's teacher.
