What is Canvas?
Canvas is the district Learning Management System (LMS) used in Early Childhood - 12th grade that serves as a digital classroom.

Canvas allows teachers to manage content, record and measure learning, and communicate with all users. Students have the ability to connect with their teacher and peers, access activities and assignments and receive feedback. Guardians will function as observers of the course, which allows them to view work pertaining to their individual student(s).

Why Canvas?
Consistency & Efficiency
We believe that the consistency and efficiency Canvas brings will improve the process in which we teach and communicate with students and parents. 

Personalized Learning
Teachers are able to build their course digitally, with several options that allow for more personalized learning for students. We have been working hard district-wide to meet the needs of ALL students in order to achieve success.  This is one way that we can offer that support. 

Preparation for the Future

Canvas is just one of many learning management systems used world-wide in K-12 and universities.  However, Canvas is the LMS currently being used at all University of Wisconsin Schools,The Ohio State University, University of Miami, North Central State University and many more. K-12 schools using Canvas in Wisconsin include Oshkosh and Pulaski as well as many others. Introducing our students to this instruction delivery method is one more way we are striving to prepare them for their future.
