Canvas is the Learning Management System that is used by the Richmond County School System. If you have not used Canvas before or you need a quick refresher, please take the Canvas Tour for Students and Parents.
If you have never used Canvas before, this is the place to start. It will give you a tour of the main parts. Take a look BEFORE you start learning Canvas.
The first thing to know is how to get to Canvas. On your Chromebook or PC, go to your LaunchPad account.

Canvas Tour for Students and Parents
This quick course guides you through logging in, setting up parent accounts, email settings, configuring your dashboard, and so much more.
These guides are to be used as a resource to answer specific questions about using Canvas.
Students who do not have internet access at home may download their Canvas courses to a computer or an iPhone from an available internet connection. Once downloaded, the course can be taken offline without an internet connection. Once students have completed content in their course(s), they will need to find a location (i.e. a school parking lot) to connect to the internet so assignments will be uploaded for teacher viewing.
