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.

Tentative Timeline:

Summer 2018: Beginning Access to CANVAS

Summer 2018: Summer academies and trainings available.

Fall 2018: all classes and students imported from Powerschool; Students and Teachers will have access to their CANVAS accounts.

 

 

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 for the 18-19 school year.

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.
