Canvas Support

Canvas is a learning management system (LMS). An LMS allows teachers to deliver content in a blended format, or on the computer. Teachers can give assignments, quizzes, post discussion etc. Canvas is particularly useful if a student is out for an extended period of time as it allows them to remain connected to the classroom content.  All secondary students have access to Canvas. There are a variety of resources on this page to help parents and students with Canvas.

Canvas is the Learning Management System for grades 6-12 in Vance County Schools.  Teachers  digitally share resources, exchange work, and offer assignment feedback in Canvas.
