Communication with Parents
These three programs are distinct companies and provide different information but overlap in several areas. This page will help to explain the similarities and differences.
- PowerSchool: This program is student-based and keeps track of schedules, report cards (6-12), student demographic information and state reporting requirements.
- Canvas: This program is learning-focused and keeps track of assignments, quizzes/tests, teacher resources, and student calendar of due dates. To learn more, visit the Canvas informational website.
- SchoolMessenger: This program focuses on mass-communication for the district. School messenger sends phone calls, emails, and instant messages to keep students and parents informed of various events within the district.
Please look through the PDF below to see how the three main programs relate to each other.
If you want to create a PowerSchool Parent Portal, please email Steve Noyes with the names of your students.
Communication is a key element in helping to ensure the success of your student in the ICSD. We encourage sharing of information between home and school.
