Canvas (Learning Management System)
WHO:   All Wyoming School Districts and Colleges!
WHEN: 2018-2019 school year. (Please see more details below!)
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

Tentative Timeline:

Spring 2018: Training and Information will be given out to any faculty who is interested

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.
