Canvas Information

  • Canvas is a comprehensive learning management system (LMS) that we will use to house all instructional content for our students here at Clay Community Schools in kindergarten through grade 12.  Your student(s) will be using Canvas daily either independently or with teachers through whole group instruction.  Our teachers can use Canvas to post information, instructional content, instructional videos, discussions, assignments, tests, and quizzes.  Parents can set up a parent observer account that will allow them to see what their student(s) see when logging in.  Instructions for creating this account, along with other helpful information, can be found below.  

Canvas Orientation Course

  • Canvas offers a lot of options for our students.  Take some time to visit this orientation tour, hosted in Canvas, that is designed to help parents and students feel more confident navigating through courses, submitting assignments, checking feedback, and asking for help.
