•  Canvas

    Lee County High School currently uses Canvas as its learning management system.  What is Canvas?  Canvas is a very simple and straightforward teaching and learning tool for students and teachers that keeps parents connected to daily classroom activities.  Students will use Canvas on a daily basis to receive homework from teachers, submit completed assignments, take tests and quizzes, participate in classroom discussions, have access to a calendar which lists all current and upcoming assignments, tests and quizzes, ability to message teachers quickly, and much more!  As a parent, you will be able to see graded assignments/quizzes/tests, access the calendar listing upcoming assignments, quizzes and tests, and have the ability to message teachers quickly.  


    (Please note that PowerSchool is our official Student Information System and that final grades that appear in Canvas may not reflect the official grade which is recorded in PowerSchool.  In regards to grades, parents should only use Canvas to see individual assignment/task grades and teacher comments.  To access your student’s official PowerSchool grades, please stop by the front office and complete a Parent/Legal Guardian Portal Request Form.)
