Parent/Guardian Access to Canvas
Parents & Guardians can sign up to have an observer account in Canvas and have their very own app: Canvas Parent.Observers can link their Canvas account to their student's account so they can see assignment dues dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.
Note: Students need to create a pairing code for observers to link their account.For more information on using Canvas as a Parent/Guardian, here is the Canvas Observer Guide and a video introduction.
