PARENT OBSERVERS IN CANVAS
Parents can sign up as an observer in Canvas! Observers can link their Canvas account to their student’s account so they can see assignment due dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course. This is a great way to support your student and know what is going on in their classes. To sign up for a for a Parent Canvas Account go to: https://www.4j.lane.edu/instruction/canvas/ Your student will need to give you their access code, which is found in their Canvas account under settings.
