What Is Canvas?
Canvas is the district Learning Management System (LMS) for MTSD. Canvas allows teachers to facilitate, document, and track learning in an online environment. Parents and guardians can use Canvas to see important class information including assignments, due dates, assignment feedback, teacher engagement, and more using their Canvas Observer Account. Daily lessons will be provided in a structured format using asynchronous (not happening in real-time, e.g. pre-recorded videos, texts) and/or synchronous (virtually, in real-time with teacher) methods. All assessments and grading practices and procedures will mirror on-campus practices and procedures.
How is Canvas different from Infinite Campus?
Canvas is a learning management system (LMS) that provides a more detailed look at your student’s learning and will have the most up-to-date grade information. Parents/guardians can use Canvas to see assignment details, view teacher feedback, and engage with teachers. Infinite Campus is a student information system (SIS) that serves as a database for student demographics (on the administrative side) and all student grades (on the student/parent side).
