CANVAS / E-LEARNING INFORMATION FOR PARENTS:
Canvas is the LMS (Learning Management System) used by the Diocese of Fort Wayne South Bend. This LMS allows teachers to create digital curriculum for students to access while at school or off-site. Your student will use Canvas for e-Learning days, to download files, take quizzes, access vital links, view videos, and more!
Canvas is being used in districts in and around Fort Wayne as well as across the country. This tool does not replace the teacher, but helps to connect students and teachers in a new way, and supplement and enhance traditional classroom learning and activities. This technology gives students practical life skills that they will use for college and careers--all while enhancing the curriculum. By using Canvas, students will make an easier transition to college.
Important and Required information:
In compliance with the Diocesan Internet Usage Policy, the Diocese requires our staff to copy parents on all emails sent directly to their children. A very important step in the e-learning program is setting up the parent's account in the Canvas program. Once your child has set-up his/her account, the parent will receive an email invitation to create an account with Canvas. Parents must respond to this email. Upon acceptance, you will need to create an account. You will need your child's username and password to complete this step. Please get this information from your child. This acceptance will allow the instructor to contact your child via email and will provide the parent/guardian with a copy of all communications. Detailed and step-by-step instructions to complete registration are below.
For each student, you will get one “Confirm Email: Canvas” message. Only be concerned with the first message. To add additional students to your account, follow the steps below.

What can observers (parents) do in a Canvas course?
In Canvas, the observer (parent) role can be used to enroll parents who would like to monitor their child in a Canvas course. Observers have limited permissions that allow them to see what is going on in a course without interrupting the flow of daily course communication. Like students, observers cannot view a course until it is published and the course has started.
Observers are bound to the same prerequisites, requirements, lock dates, etc. as the student they are observing.
If you have any questions, please contact Jim Huth, Principal at (260) 456-1261.
