Overview

Canvas is a web based learning management system created by Instructure that is used in education.

Logging In


The Oakland Schools Service Desk can only assist parents with verifying they are logging in with the correct credentials. Any other assistance, requests, or internal Canvas issues should be directed to the appropriate person or building under District Specific Information.

Staff and students will log into Canvas with their email address and email password. Each district has its own login page that has to be used by that district. You CAN NOT log into Canvas using their generic login portal on their website.
