Canvas, Grades, and Attendance

As we get settled into a new school year, we are experiencing situations we’ve never dealt with in previous years. The way we are teaching is evolving, and we recognize this is challenging for teachers, students, and parents. We have implemented Canvas, a new student learning management system, that integrates with Tyler, our attendance and gradebook program. Any time change occurs in a system as large as ours, it is tough on everyone for a period of time. The learning curve is steep, and we acknowledge this can be a struggle. Normally, this transformation would take six months to a year, and our teachers did this in approximately six weeks.  There are challenges that we are diligently working through. We need to work collaboratively together, and allow for grace and flexibility on both sides, while we get accustomed to this change.

Thank you!
