    Canvas
    The class does most of its formal work on Canvas, the same system that most local colleges use. There are a number of advantages to using Canvas from a parent or student point of view, not the least of which is the ability to see full assignment descriptions, and the status of your (and your students') homework. The most up to date grades are availible on Canvas as well. There is an app for parents (both iOS and Android) as well as one for students (again, iOS and Android). Please note that our school is listed as "Free Canvas Accounts".
