6. Enter your name
 
7. Enter your preferred email address
 
8. Enter your Dana Middle School student's pairing code. Students know how to generate a pairing code from their Canvas account. The code lasts for 7 days. The code needs to be regenerated for additional parent.
If you have more that one student at Dana here are the steps you will need to complete to add them to your Parent Canvas Observer Account:
To enroll a second child/student to observe – do the following:
  • Log into Canvas Parent Observer account
  • Click account link
  • Click settings
  • Click observing in navigation menu
  • Enter student's pairing code in field provided
  • Click + student button
Below you should see students being observed: both names should appear.

Add a Parent Canvas App to your Phone

In the Canvas Parent app, you can create a Canvas observer account to view student course information. If you already have an account, you can log in to the Parent app. To link yourself to a student, you will need to enter a student-specific pairing code that will link you to the student. Pairing codes are valid for seven days. Students can generate pairing codes from their User Settings. Depending on institution permissions, admins and instructors may also be able to generate pairing codes. For more information on pairing codes, view the Pairing Codes - Frequently Asked Questions PDF.

Even though you have already set up a Parent Canvas Observer Account on your computer/desktop/laptop, you will have to set up a second account once you download the App. The Canvas App is a separate program and more limited than the computer program.  

To create an account in the Canvas Parent App, you will need:

  • What you need: Pairing code created by the student

  • Our school is not listed: type in - Wiseburn School District Parent

Steps with images:

Enter the six-digit alphanumeric pairing code for the student you want to link to in the Student Pairing Code field.
Note: Students can generate pairing codes from their User Settings. Depending on institution permissions, admins and instructors may also be able to generate pairing codes.
