What is Canvas?
Canvas is an easy-to-use, cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that connects all the digital tools and resources teachers and students use into one simple place.
Who uses Canvas?
All three McKinney ISD high schools and five middle schools use Canvas, as well as many colleges and universities such as Collin College, University of Texas, Baylor University, Dartmouth, and more.
Can parents access Canvas?
Yes! Parents can access Canvas by going to https://canvas.mckinneyisd.net and logging in with their HAC (Home Access Center) credentials. Parents will be able to access their student’s account as an “observer” beginning the first day of school. If there are issues with logging in, please contact the campus to get the correct HAC credentials.
What can I access as a parent?
As a parent you will be able to see the calendar with due dates from your student’s classes (if that teacher has entered due dates), announcements, and some course content. You will not, however, be able to participate in the course.
How does my student access Canvas?
Students can access Canvas using their current network username and password. If your student doesn’t know these credentials, please have him/her see the campus library staff. Students can access Canvas on any device that has access to the internet - at home, at school, at the library, etc.
If you have any questions feel free to contact your CMS library staff.

One 2 The World
In January 2015, McKinney ISD took a strategic step forward in its mission to prepare all students for college and career success by putting a new MacBook Air laptop in the hands of every MISD freshman.
It’s the first step in the District’s new “One 2 the World” instructional initiative that will roll out from 2014–2018. Once fully implemented, the program will provide every high schooler with personal access to a computer by issuing a laptop to each of those students in much the same way that textbooks have traditionally been distributed—but with vastly greater, and more flexible, educational potential.
