Please see the NOTES section below for helpful technology information.
Teachers across the district will be making the transition from using their individual School Loop web pages to Canvas. Since Canvas is password protected, it will allow teachers to post more details with their assignments and add attachments that they could not with the public School Loop site. Canvas also gives an advantage to students and parents as it will send you notifications when updates in assignments occur.
When you sign up as an observer of your student(s) in Canvas, you have access to your student's assignments and grades within the program. You can stay up to date with what your child has done and what he or she needs to do.
- Download the attached tutorial (Parent Tutorial: Sign up as Canvas Observer)
- Then go to to the Benjamin Canvas login page to sign up. You can find a Canvas link on Mrs. Anthony's main page, on any district page listed alphabetically under Resources > Student Resources, or right here: bendist25.instructure.com.
