Canvas

Parents and students now have access to Canvas, IUSD’s new learning management system. Canvas is a leading edge, online tool that provides a universal approach to engaging students by providing materials, calendars, assignments, communication, quizzes and collaboration for every class in one place.  Access to Canvas as a parent, will allow you to observe the activities students are doing within Canvas. This is the District’s first year using Canvas, so the extent of use in each class will be different. As the 2014-2015 academic year continues, you will see activity within Canvas increase.
