Canvas has been the district's primary learning management system since August 2022. Canvas provides parents improved real-time access to student’s courses and enhanced teaching and learning for students. Families can also log in to Canvas to easily view student’s courses, assignments, and important dates at any time.

Canvas benefits include:

  • Anywhere, anytime access to digital coursework and instructional content
  • Consolidated materials in one place with quick, easy access
  • Streamlined communication and collaboration from any device
  • Canvas is one way SBISD is simplifying and consolidating our platforms to ensure a great learning experience for all.

How do I log in to Canvas?

Parents/guardians are enrolled in Canvas courses as observers. They are linked to a single student or multiple students. Observers can view course content, assignments, due dates and events, but they cannot participate in the course.
