Parents can sign up as an observer in Canvas. Observers can link their Canvas account to their student’s account so they can see assignment dues dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

These instructions are for parents who do not have a Canvas account and want to observe their students in their courses. In order to create a Canvas account, click on Canvas For Families (button above).
