“The District is so excited to have this opportunity to engage and introduce parents to Canvas,” said Irma Hess, a licensed master social worker with the Office of Family and Community Engagement. Canvas, a learning management system, will be used to enhance digital learning during the 2020-2021 school year.


Canvas is made up of a powerful set of highly integrated learning products that allow teachers and schools to customize their digital learning environment, as well as introduce students to a system used at colleges and universities around the nation.


“We have dual credit students at the Alamo Colleges and UT Austin who are already taking college courses using Canvas,” said Becky Landa, executive director of the Office of 21st Century Learning. “We felt this was a viable product for high school as it was a natural transition. Rather than having multiple platforms, it allows students to fully participate in college courses right away.”


The goal of integrating Canvas at SAISD is to provide a robust learning management system to facilitate rigorous and high-quality blended learning experiences as well as support teachers, students, and families. SAISD’s Office of Organizational Learning and Office of 21st Century Learning began training master teachers on Canvas in July.
