The Richmond County School System would like to introduce you to our Learning Management System - Canvas. Canvas is used in school systems all over the nation and is also used by many of the major colleges and universities for online classes.
We recognize learning something new can be a challenge, so we want to ensure students and parents have the tools to be ready to use Canvas. We have provided orientations for elementary students, secondary students and parents/guardians below.
We are excited for our students to learn Canvas!
Students and teachers can access Canvas through their Launchpad account.
If you are ready to log-in, watch this quick how-to video:

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 the 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.
