  • In Fall, 2017, the district launched Canvas as its secondary-level Learning Management System.  This platform – which is used by dozens of school districts throughout Iowa, as well as by The University of Iowa and Iowa State University – serves  as the online platform for all secondary-level coursework in the Iowa City Schools.  Canvas Parent enhances the potential for parents to engage in their children's education. Parents can review upcoming or past assignments, check on grades, and receive course announcements.  Canvas Parent can be used by anyone who creates an account, has been added to Canvas with an observer role, or has signed up as a parent using the web browser.
