Parent Observer Canvas
Canvas Parent Resources
Parent Observer Setup:
- To observe your student’s Canvas account, you will first need a pairing code. You can get an access code by requesting it from your student, one of your student’s teachers, or from the Parent Center or Counseling office.
- Once you have the pairing code follow the instruction below to activate your parent observer account.
Go to the KHSD Canvas URL and click the "Parent of a Canvas User?" link (see image below).
Enter your personal information, email address, and create a password. The Student Pairing Code is a six-digit number that should be provided to you by your school site, your student, or their teacher. This code contains numbers and letters and is CaSe-sensitive. Codes expire after seven days, so be sure to use them as soon as you get them or a new code will need to be generated. Your student can generate a new Student Pairing Code if they have access to their account.
Begin Observing! You will gain immediate access to your student's Canvas activities and course information. For more information about what you can do, see Canvas's Support Site.
