• Canvas is a leading edge online classroom tool that provides teachers a universal approach to engage students by providing materials, calendars, assignments, communication, quizzes and tests for classes in one place available online from school or home.


    As the district moves to a more widespread use of Canvas, many teachers may be conducting many of their classroom activities in Canvas. Teachers will be communicating to students and parents at the beginning of the school year as to how they will be using Canvas on a day-to-day basis. 


    Canvas also offers important information from the Desert Vista School Counselers, including:

    • Counselor Presentations
    • College Planning Checklists
    • ECAP - Education Career Action Plans - lessons
    • Announcements from the Counseling Department
