Canvas Parent App and Web Portal

The Canvas App

Parents and facilitators can now download the Canvas Parent app in both the iTunes and Google Play stores.

Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school’s e-learning advisor (ELA).

The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student’s progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:

  • View assignment descriptions and due dates
  • Set reminders for assignments
  • View assignment grades
  • View course grades
  • Set grade alerts
  • View course announcements

The Canvas Web Portal

Parents and facilitators can also access their students courses via the web. The process to gain access is similar to the Canvas app, but the login is online.

Observers have limited permissions that allow them to view what is happening in a course without interrupting the flow of daily course communication. To learn more about observing, view the Parent Registration and Student Observation video.

Detailed instructions, including screenshots, for signing up for an Observer Account is accessible by clicking here.
