2020/2021 Course Information
Canvas is the Learning Management System (LMS) used by Cabarrus County Schools. Mr. Maxwell uses Canvas extensively to create courses where all materials are readily accessible to all students. Moreover, Canvas will be the location where all course communication is delivered through Canvas Announcements. Canvas is similar to many other LMS's (Moodle, Blackboard, etc.) that are used in colleges around the nation to improve organization and provide students with electronic access to instructional resources. Instructions for parent and student access to Canvas can be found below.
Students - Go to https://cabarrus.instructure.com and enter your school computer username and password (click Login)
Parents - Refer to the Document Tab (Left Side of Page) and download the Canvas Instructions for Parents File
Important Canvas Note - While Canvas does store and show grades, it does not show every grade that students receive. PowerSchool should still be monitored to view student grades.
STUDENTS: You should be checking your Cabarrus County Schools Email AND Canvas daily, and all Canvas Announcements will also forward to your school email account if your notifications are on. If you have a smartphone, consider downloading the Canvas (for students) App and turning your Notifications on - this will ensure you instantly see all course announcements. Information for turning on Canvas Notifications can be found in the Course Welcome Video posted in your course Canvas page.
