Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) used by select middle and high school classes in the Appleton Area School District.

A learning management system is a software program that allows teachers to create and administer assignments and document and track learning. Students use the software to complete and turn in assignments. Parents also have access to the software to follow their student's assignments and progress and to engage with their student's teachers. Find out more about Canvas.

How is Canvas different from Infinite Campus?

Infinite Campus is our student information system. This is where we update information such as addresses and phone numbers for students, medical needs, attendance, grades, and more. It is also the system we use to report required information to the state and federal government.

Parents can view grades and attendance in Infinite Campus and update student information. With Canvas, parents can view more details about courses, specific assignments, and ongoing student progress.

For Parents 

If your child is using Canvas in their classes, information regarding your child's instructional program is now available to you as an "observer." Canvas will provide grade-book information as well as updates on upcoming and/or late assignments, the calendar of activities for the course and even insight into the content shared with the students. As we become accustomed to this reporting tool, we will provide resources to support parents when learning aspects of Canvas.  

A parent account allows parents to observe the courses of students they are linked to, as well as receive the same notifications the student would.
