Canvas Parent Account?

To support and monitor student progress, you can create a Parent Canvas account. This allows you to view everything your student sees on the Canvas platform. You will have access to your student's courses, assignments, grades, scoring rubrics, teacher feedback and student calendar. There are two ways to access your Canvas parent account, on a desktop or laptop computer or by the Canvas phone app. Both directions are listed below.

Creating and Accessing Your Account on a desktop or laptop.

To create a parent Canvas account, please go to Make sure this is the Richland School District Canvas login portal. (See image below.) Click on Parent of a Canvas User, found in the upper right corner of the Login box. You will need to create your own account using your email address and a password of your choice. Please note, district personnel do not have access to your password information.
