How do parents get accounts for Canvas? - Parents

Parents at Allen-Stevenson are given observer accounts that are automatically created by the School and linked to student accounts. As observers, parents can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

In September of their son's first year, parents will receive an email containing their Canvas username and default password.The Canvas username will be the same username that is used for all other Allen-Stevenson websites (Firstname + Lastname ex: MarkTwain). The default password will be provided in the email and should be changed to something more secure and memorable. For instructions on how parents can change their Cavas password please see How To Change Your Canvas Password - Parents.

The email containing a parent's Canvas username and default password will be sent to the email address provided to the School on the application for admission or the most current email address that has been provided to the School.

It is not necessary for parents to use a pairing code to gain access to Canvas. If you do not know your username and password for Canvas, please contact Ms. Zelmanowicz.
