Canvas

Background:

During FHSD Strategic Planning, implementing a district-wide learning management system (LMS) was identified as a priority by internal and external stakeholders.  A FHSD LMS Review Committee reviewed LMS vendors and products, and made the recommendation to the Administration and Board of Education to implement Canvas as the FHSD LMS which was approved.

What is a learning management system (LMS)?

A LMS is an online software application used by schools, higher education, and businesses for the organization and delivery of learning activities.  It provides a school district with a streamlined, user-friendly online learning environment for students and teachers.   A LMS is a platform to create lessons, organize and deliver content and courses, and assess data performance.  Additionally, a LMS offers centralized curriculum and content management, standards-based tacking, collaboration and multimedia tools, and a central depository for shared digital resources.   

Canvas Implementation:

The planned implementation of Canvas will be staged over a three-year period starting in August 2020 at the high school and middle level.  Canvas is scheduled for roll out at the elementary school level in August 2022.
