Canvas is a web-based learning management system, or LMS, used in the Canyons School District to help manage online and blended learning materials and communicate with families about student skill development and learning achievement. Canyons School District teachers apply the CSD Best Practices for Digital Teaching and Learning when creating learning experiences and opportunities for students in Canvas through the creation of content pages, assignments, discussions, interactive activities, and more. Through Canvas, teachers can provide individualized feedback to students, and cultivate and maintain constant communication with students and families.
