• Canvas is our new Learning Management System which will be used for on-campus and Digital Academy students. It allows a single, consistent platform to hold instructional content and materials, assignments and assessments, student feedback, and teacher/student and student/student communications for a course. 

    All students and parents should become familiar with Canvas.

     Parent Resources

    Do you want to be able to view your student's teacher's Canvas pages? You can add yourself as an "observer" to your student's Canvas by completing the following two steps:

     

    1. Have your student generate a "pairing code" by following the directions here.
    2. Create yourself an account by going to this website: https://leonschools.instructure.com/login/canvas

    Friendly reminder that FOCUS should be used to look at your student's current grades. Canvas is NOT an accurate picture of your student's academic standing.
