• Canvas for Parents

    Waller ISD (WISD) parents can now access Canvas, our new Learning Management System via Canvas for Parents. This allows parents/guardians the opportunity to log in as “Observers'' for an everyday overview of their student's learning interactions including calendars, assignments, submissions, and class resources. To login, parents must have a student pairing code. Learn how to get the pairing code from your child’s account.
