Canvas Learning Management System (LMS)

  • Canvas LMS logo

    The Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) is the online classroom software used by WPS. It’s where teachers can post content, discussion, and assessments. It’s where students can extend their learning outside of the normal classroom and school day.  

    Teachers can post all their class content in one place, including a calendar for due dates, links to class resources like videos, posted homework assignments (and tips on how to turn it all in), etc.

    Students can see all their assignments, due dates, and class materials in one spot. They can turn in assignments and see teacher feedback.

    Please note that the official gradebook for WPS is PowerSchool GradeBook. Grades in Canvas may not reflect the final grade for a course.

    In Canvas, parents are called "Observers." In order to view your student(s) in Canvas, a pairing code is needed. This code can be generated by a student or instructor and is used to link the student and observer. This Pairing Codes FAQ document includes some of the most frequently asked questions to assist you in understanding how pairing codes are generated and the various user roles.
