We want to inform you that Kimono (the platform that provisions your data) will perform planned extended database maintenance for 24 hours from 8:00 pm MST December 26, through 8:00 pm MST December 27, 2019. During the scheduled maintenance, no scheduled collections or events will process, and SIF agents and APIs will receive a “HTTP 503 Service Unavailable” response. This means no data syncs will run during the scheduled maintenance time. Normal Kimono service will resume after 8:00 pm MST December 27, 2019. 

While no action is required from your team for this maintenance, you can visit Kimono’s Status Page if you would would like to follow the status.

Canvas (Learning Management System)
WHO:   All Wyoming School Districts and Colleges!
WHEN: Current
WHY: To have a consistent Learning Platform for all Wyoming Students in education K-12 and higher education.
WHAT:  Online Learning System  to help simplify teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools teachers use in one easy place.
HOW: Wyoming Department of Education has adopted Canvas as the statewide Learning Management System.
WHERE: SCSD#1 will allow any classes/teachers to utilize this software in our district.

Why did the State of Wyoming choose CANVAS LMS

Six Key Points on why Wyoming chose Canvas:

1) Easy to use

2) Doesn’t hold instructors/students/administrators back (intuitive)

3) Mobile-friendliness

4) Dependable

5) Enhances the learning experience

6) Saves time

Why Should I Use CANVAS?

Simplifies Teaching and Learning

Simply put, Canvas makes teaching and learning easier. It’s intuitive, collaborative, and you can access it anytime, anywhere, on any device.

Being easy to learn, easy to implement, and radically easy to use makes Canvas that much easier for teachers to adopt.



Staff and Students will be able to log in through their Google account and  access CANVAS.

Mobile Availability will also be available through Canvas Apps




Does SCSD#1 have to use CANVAS?

 The State of Wyoming is adopting CANVAS as the statewide LMS in 2018.

SCSD#1 would like to offer  teachers/classes the option of trying and utilizing this software as one of their educational tools.

This will not take the place of any other software utilized in the district but will be an additional support piece for our teachers and students.
