  • Students can see all their assignments, due dates, and class materials  in one spot. They can turn in assignments and see teacher feedback and grades.
  • Parents can create accounts so they can get a glimpse into the classroom, see what assignments are in the works, keep an eye on due dates, etc.

PowerSchool vs. Canvas?

  • PowerSchool contains grades and attendance. It’s the authoritative source for report cards. It also contains links to other tools so you can complete back-to-school paperwork, edit how you receive phone calls/emails/texts, and more.
  • Canvas is a classroom resource. It contains assignments, hand-outs, links to resources, and more. It also shows grades. If the grades in Canvas and PowerSchool don’t match up, please ask your student or teacher.
