Canvas How To's...
CANVAS is the on-line platform Shoreline uses for students in grades 6-12. Students use CANVAS to check grades, set reminders, submit assignments and communicate with teachers. Families can monitor student progress by setting up their own account. Please set up your account as soon as possible! Need help? Contact the Tech Office or your grade level counselor.
Student Access to View Grades and Courses
Student log in is the first initial of their first and last name and their student number. For example, kf0987344.
Student password is the student number with an additional zero. For example, 00987344.
Students, if you have problems accessing Google or Canvas, please visit the Einstein Tech Office in the Library.
Parent Access to View Grades and Courses
**Though creating parent accounts is one way to view student grades, it is often easier to log in as your student**
Parent Observer Accounts to View Grades (Translations: Arabic, Korean, Vietnamese, Spanish, Amharic, Chinese, English)
Shoreline School District has implemented a learning management system called Canvas for managing student assignments and grades in grades 7-12. Middle and high school teachers assign and collect schoolwork, assess and record grades for students using the Canvas system. We invite parents to follow their students’ progress through either the Canvas Parent mobile app for Apple iOS or Android or through the Canvas website.
Setting up Canvas Parent Mobile App
Canvas Parent is available for both iOS and Android mobile operating systems.
We have created a setup guide for Canvas Parent account creation. In order to link to your student(s) Canvas accounts, you will need their Canvas username and pairing code. Student Canvas usernames are the first part of the Google email addresses we have used for several years (ex. js0123456) and can be found in Family Access in Student Info in the school email field. Your student(s) can log in to Canvas at shorelineschools.instructure.com and obtain a pairing code.
Get the free Canvas Parent app at the iTunes Store or the Android Play Store.
Add Multiple Children to the Parent App
- Each of your children will need to give you a “Pairing code” that they can generate in their accounts.
- You will use those pairing codes to add them in web Canvas: shorelineschools.instructure.com.
- They now will appear in your Canvas Parent app.
Setting up Parent Observer Accounts in Web Browser
Go to the website at https://shorelineschools.instructure.com. Click the option in the upper right hand corner that invites you to create a parent account. Next you will need to fill in four fields to create your account, including your student’s Canvas username (first & last initial followed by Student ID number – ex. pg0998877) and their Canvas pairing code, which your student must provide to you. Your student(s) can log in to Canvas at shorelineschools.instructure.com and obtain an pairing code. You will then get an email with instructions on how to complete the registration process.
