SLPS has transitioned to Canvas, a modern and innovative learning management system (LMS), which has replaced Infinity beginning with the 2017-2018 school year.
Canvas is the 21st Century LMS. Adaptable. Reliable. Customizable. Easy to use. Mobile. Time-saving. And, perhaps most importantly, it gets used. That’s because it’s designed to get out of your way, to let you do your thing. Every last feature, every last interface is crafted to save you time and effort and to make teaching and learning easier. 
» One of the key features of Canvas is the integration with Skyward. Meaning all students are loaded and ready to go in your courses. All Canvas assignments will automatically transfer into your Skyward Grade Book.
Employees can log into Canvas  using your SLPS credentials. You can also find a shortcut to Canvas in the Office365 waffle.
Training opportunities will be posted in Frontline for teachers, administrators, and district personnel.
If you are a district employee and are having trouble accessing a professional development course in Canvas please contact Julia Hilburn,

  • collaborate with colleagues within the course and participate in group discussion boards
  • receive full credit on all assignments (if asked to resubmit).
