Canvas is a learning management system that allows teachers to have an online learning space for assignments, coursework, and resources and allows students and parents access to those materials in a secure online environment. All students in the district have a Canvas account, and now their parents’ emails have been linked with their accounts. Parents can log-in to Canvas to see all information and assignments that their students’ teachers have uploaded to Canvas, and can also set up notifications to be notified when their children have new assignments. Below are instructions to log-in to Canvas as a parent:
1. Navigate to the following URL: http://bit.ly/magnoliaisdcanvas
2. Select the Parents/Guardians link3. When you get to the login screen, you will enter your personal email account that you previously provided to the district for parent communications. Your password is misd1234 (it is recommended you change it once you login).
4. Agree to the Acceptable Use Policy and Submit.
5. Once you are logged in, you will see your dashboard. This will include your child’s courses (if their teacher has published a course). Take a minute to update your notification preferences so that you can be notified of upcoming assignments and announcements. Notice on the far right-hand side that assignments and activities are listed, including a due date.
Please note that grades in Canvas are NOT official grades. To see your child’s official grades, you will need to log-in to your Parent Self-Serve account, which you can access by clicking HERE.
