We are very excited about the launch of HCPSS Connect on Monday, August 31 and the opportunities for parents to stay engaged with their child's academics. One component of HCPSS Connect is the Canvas Learning System.
Beginning this week, parents are being added to their child's course pages in Canvas. You may have even received emails notifying you that you have been enrolled in your child's courses.
Parents will have access to these courses beginning August 31, but save the emails as a reminder to log in on Monday to view your child's courses.
For parents with students enrolled in Music courses:
This year, high school music teachers will not be using the Canvas Learning System grading feature the way that other teachers will. Instead, music teachers will be using the Synergy Student Information System for the purposes of grading.
For parents, all official grades are found in Synergy so this will not result in a change in process in order to access your child's grades in music. The only difference that parents will notice is that while most other courses in Canvas will contain assignment grades, music courses will not.
