LCJVS has adopted the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS). Canvas is easy to use, cloud-based and flexible, and will enhance student’s learning experiences as they prepare for college and career success. Canvas allows teachers to blend all of their tools, apps, and resources into a flexible digital space that complements their classroom, and where students can experience individual learning, and take advantage of their strengths.
Parents can create a Canvas Observer account from which they can monitor their student’s in-class progress. Parents will need access to their student’s Canvas account in order to obtain a code needed to create their observer account.
Canvas has been chosen for LCJVS because it provides our students with a tool to strengthen their high school experience as well as their transition after high school. Not only do colleges and universities such as Miami University, The Ohio State University, and others utilize Canvas; but also Lorain County Community College, where many of our students continue their post-high school education and training, has chosen the Canvas LMS for all of its: on-campus, blended, and online courses.
We are excited about implementing Canvas though we recognize that this process requires both staff and students to make adjustments to how they leverage new technologies. This period will take some time, but the result will be more flexible, connected, and powerful classroom experiences.
