Parent Canvas Info
Parent Access to View Grades and Courses
Shoreline School District uses 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 to 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
1) Each of your children will need to give you a “Pairing code” that they can generate in their accounts.
2) You will use those pairing codes to add them in web Canvas here.
3) They now will appear in your Canvas Parent app.
Setting up Parent Observer Accounts in Web Browser
Go to the Canvas website. Click the option in the upper right hand corner that invites you to create a parent account. Next, 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 and obtain an pairing code.
You will then get an email with instructions on how to complete the registration process. More info on how to use your Parent Observer account is available here.
If you are having trouble creating a parent observer account, please call the Shorecrest Tech Office at (206) 393-4315.
