Canvas Parent Guide

Get a jump start on how to use Canvas, our learning management system, to view your child’s daily assignments and grades.

Sometimes parents want to see their child’s Canvas account so they can see assignment due dates, announcements, and other course content. Providence 6th-12th grade parents can now be observers in Canvas to assist their child in their educational journey. There are two methods to observe your child(s) account: the website (which offers the most complete content) and the “Canvas Parent App” for your iOS or Android device. Remember, observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course. To sign up navigate over to Canvas and click the link “Parent of a Canvas User“. You will need to know your child’s Stallion ID and password to create your account.

A few of the options you will have as an observer are:

  • See the Dashboard
  • Read Announcements and Discussions
  • See the Assignments Page
  • See the Syllabus Page
  • See the Calendar
  • View Grades
