Canvas for Parents

Canvas is accessible through the Parent Portal. You no longer use a JOIN code. Parents will have their own launchpad that is different from the student’s launchpad. On the Parent Portal is Canvas, Skyward, and other OCPS parent software systems.

Use the following directions to access LaunchPad to log into Canvas as an observer.

Canvas Observer Access - LaunchPad Directions


Parents need to ensure that their email and cell phone numbers are up to date in Skyward.

When you are certain your contact info is correct, link to Parent Portal atClassLink 

During the registration process, you will receive a one-time password through email or text, depending on how you register. Please be sure you have access to this while you are registering. No one else can retrieve that code for you.

If you are denied access, you need to contact the school at [email protected] to update your information.
