Being a Parent Observer in Canvas
Canvas has a 4 minute video that will walk you through the steps of creating an account in the Canvas app and how to use Canvas to check grades, look at assignments, and see the calendar.
**YOU WILL NEED A PAIRING CODE**
The video goes through two scenarios. In the first, the middle school student logs into their Canvas account and creates a pairing code to give to the parent. In the second, the teacher has given the parent a pairing code. Any of your child's teachers can send you a pairing code. One code works with all classes.
