Learning Management Systems

  • An LMS — Learning Management System — is a digital tool that tracks a wide variety of student-teacher interactions such as homework, grading, sharing of resources, parent communication, assessments, and more. It allows teachers to create, distribute and track class materials anywhere, on any device. That means it’s accessible from school or home, with any platform (including Macs, PCs, Chromebooks, and tablets).

    Classroom teachers in LEISD have two digital learning management systems they can choose to use with their students: Canvas or Google Classroom.


    For more information regarding whether your student will be using any of these tools, please contact your student's teachers.  Often information is provided by the teacher through their syllabus or course introduction document given to students and parents at the beginning of the school year.
