Canvas Learning Management System

Cherokee County School District will launch for the 2017-2018 school year a new Learning Management System called Canvas 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 are in the Aspen system or can be obtained from the school’s front office. The Aspen system will be offline for public use as of June 30, 2017, so parents are encouraged to look up these IDs and any other data they want to save before then.
