Guardians' Guide to Canvas Observer Accounts

Canvas Observer

During the 2020-21 school year, many Alpine School District teachers and students will be using the Canvas Learning Management System, provided by USBE and UEN. Additionally, ASD parents and guardians will have the ability to monitor student learning using Canvas Observer accounts.

Observer accounts allow guardians to monitor their student’s courses, assignments, teacher feedback, due dates, and scores. Please note that while guardians and students can see assignments and assessment scores in Canvas, they should always check Skyward for official student grades.

Parents/Guardians who wish to get an Observer Account will need to complete the steps detailed in the video / instructions below:


Guardians will sign up for a Canvas Observer Account by clicking this link and selecting the “Parent of a Canvas User? Click Here to Create an Account” button

Register for an account and enter the pairing code

Additionally, parents and guardians can download a free Canvas Observer app for iOS and Android devices called Canvas Parent
