Canvas Parent Access

Canvas Parent Access
Posted on 09/12/2018

If your child’s teacher is using Canvas, you may log in as a parent and observe. This means you see exactly what your student sees, including calendars, documents, announcements, and discussions. This will not allow you to interact as the student.


To observe a student in Canvas:

  • Go to https://edmonds15.instructure.com/ to access the parent portal.   In the upper right, click on “Parent of a Canvas user?”

  • Enter your email and create a password.

  • You will then be asked for your student's pairing code. to connect to your student’s account.  (You will need to get this code from your student.  The student will login to their Canvas account, select Account, select settings, and select Pair with Observer to get the code).  

How to get a pairing code?


To add a second student:

  • Log in to your parent account.

  • Under Account > Profile you will see Observing at the bottom of the left side menu.

  • Click on Observing.

  • Add the pairing code for another student to follow and select + Student. You will need a different pairing code for this student.
