Observer Pairing

Observer Pairing has been turned on for families. Below is a link to a step-by-step guide for students and parents to follow to set up this access.

Directions for Linking Students to Parents in Canvas

In Canvas, the Observer role can be used to enroll parents, mentors, and guests who would like to view a Canvas course but do not need to actively participate in the course. Observers have limited permissions that allow them to see what is going on in a course without interrupting the flow of daily course communication. Observers cannot submit work on behalf of the students they observe, but they can see student grades, assignments and events, and course interactions.
