Canvas Pairing Codes

Powerschool and Canvas

  • PowerSchool vs. Canvas
    • PowerSchool is the official location of student grades.  The PowerSchool grade is what will go on a student’s grade card and it also contains information regarding attendance.  There is an app available for iOS and Android.
    • Canvas is a learning management system (LMS) that allows teachers to have a single site for many technology resources.  Grades in Canvas likely do not match the student’s actual grade. We are moving to Canvas this semester so the extent to which teachers use Canvas will vary.  There is a method for a parent to observe their student’s Canvas courses that involves the student sharing a pairing code (this is the best way we have found to do this).
