What is Canvas?

Canvas Logo

Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) used by learners and educators of Lackland ISD. Parents can sign up for a free account so that they may view the materials and resources posted in their child's courses that are available in Canvas. Canvas can be accessed by a web browser on a computer or mobile device, or by installing the Canvas Parent app on your mobile device. All parent accounts are given the role of Observer.

With your parent account you can:

  • Read announcements
  • View the calendar
  • See course syllabi 
  • See your child's assignments (with the exception of discussion posts)
  • View your child's grades on assignments. 
    • At this time course grades will still be posted in Gradebook
  • Use the Inbox to contact your child's teacher
  • Set up notifications to get emails or texts
  • View instructional content

Please note that not all features listed above will be used in all courses. Please refer to "What You'll See" for more information.
