Canvas Learning Management System

Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, Cherokee County School District is launching Canvas, a new Learning Management System for all students, parents and teachers.

The Canvas LMS provides a seamless environment for students, teachers, and parents to access course content, assignments/assessments, grades, and attendance, along with the integration of additional technology tools such as OneDrive and Office 365. This brief video highlights the system’s benefits.

Canvas Parent Account

To set up a parent account, which takes only a couple of minutes, parents need the student ID (5 or 6 digits) and GTID (10 digits) for each of their children, who all can be added to one Canvas parent account. These IDs can be obtained from the school’s front office.

For directions on how to set up a Canvas Parent Account, please choose from one of the following:
