Communication with Parents

Parent Information

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.

Helpful Hints:
Please look through the PDF below to see how the three main programs relate to each other.
