What north carolinians Are Saying About Canvas

In April 2015, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) began providing negotiated Canvas pricing to all local education agency (LEA) and charter schools statewide. Schools and districts purchase Canvas for all users and NCDPI covers all costs associated with implementation, training, course migration, 24/7 support, and more.

“Teachers won’t need to spend a lot of time tracking down assignments, documenting grades or reminding students about looming deadlines. With Canvas as part of our 1:1 mobile learning initiative, teachers can focus on teaching."


Director of Instructional Tech & Media, Rockingham County Schools
