Canvas is the students' online "homebase", for their classes in grades 3-12. It allows teachers to provide students and families with course information, schedules, lessons materials and content, distribute assignments and receive submitted assignments, and provide students with feedback.

Families can keep track of the daily progress of their student through Canvas as an observer. Click on the tabs below to learn how to login to your observer account, manage account settings, and how to use Canvas as an observer. Each section will include information on how to use Canvas on a computer and on a phone.

        Using Canvas

        As an observer you will be linked to your student(s) in Canvas based on the email address that is listed in Skyward.

        The observer role is different from the student role. Observers can:

        • View course information but cannot participate in the course.
        • View student grades
        • View what work isassigned along with due dates.
        • View course information and announcements.
        • Communicate directly with individual teachers through the Canvas Inbox (email).

        Important Items to Know:

        • Courses are only visible to observers if the teacher publishes the course and the course has started.
        • The Canvas Parent Phone App provides limited access to Canvas. There will be more access on a Computer browser versus the phone.
        • Some resources in Canvas may not be visible to the parent observer since they are restricted to only Edmonds School District accounts or students.
