Canvas Help


If you are a secondary school student or instructor (grades 6-12) and cannot login to Canvas at

Your Username and Password are the same ones you use to login to PowerSchool or to a district computer. Please note both the username and password are case sensitive, so they need to be entered EXACTLY as shown in PowerSchool. 

Typically the username is 6 characters, often a mix of letters and numbers. Same for the password. You do NOT need to enter "" when logging into Canvas; you can just enter your username. (You DO have enter when logging into a district Chromebook.)

If you do not know your username or password, ask a teacher or librarian to look that up for you on the “Demographics” screen in PowerTeacher. Remember, both the username and password are CASE SENSITIVE.

If you still cannot login, ask your teacher to use his or her school email account to contact Mr. Meador at the ESC.

Use your school email account to contact Mr. Meador at the ESC.
