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. The technology gives students practical life skills that they will use for college and careers while enhancing the curriculum. By using Canvas students will make an easier transition to college.

Bishop Luers teachers and staff have been participating in on-going training, as well as weekly sessions to become experts in the classroom.  We are excited for our students and curriculum options!   

 

In the event that we close school due to weather, we will implement an elearning day.
 
Student assignments will be posted by 10:00 a.m. on the actual Snow Day.  The assignments will be listed within a labeled module.  Students will have 3 days to complete the assignments.  Student Assignments given on a Monday must be submitted Thursday of that same week at 7:45 a.m.
 
If a student does not complete the assignment, they are considered absent for that period.  The absence is recorded in their PowerSchool attendance. It is considered unexcused and treated as such.  The student will receive a grade  based on the quality of the work as in a typical class.

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.

Parents:

  1. You will receive a message from Instructure Canvas with the subject “Confirm Email: Canvas.”
  2. Click on the link “Click here to confirm this registration” within the email. This will take you to the Canvas website.
  3. Follow the link: “Parents of a Canvas User? Click Here For An Account.”
  4. Enter contact Information. The Diocese requires our staff to copy parents on emails to their students.
  5.                Enter your name in the field.
  6.                Enter your email in the field.
  7.                Enter the child’s username in the username field (Child’s PowerSchool ID).
  8.                Enter your child’s password in the child’s password field. (Ask your child for this information).
  9. Click “Start Participating.”
  10. You will be presented with a message stating that you need to confirm your registration and create a password.
  11. Check your email for a message that says “Confirm Registration” Follow the link: “Click here to confirm the registration

               process.”

  1. Create a password; this completes the creation of your observer account. (In Canvas, the parent  is the “Observer”)

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.

To add a second (or more) student:

  1. While logged into your Observer account in Canvas, click “Settings” in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Click on “Observing” on the left-hand side.
  3. Enter the username and password of your next student and click “+ Student.”
  4. Repeat step 3 as necessary.

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 Tiffany Albertson, Principal at (260) 456-1261, Ext.3023.
