Collier County Public Schools (CCPS) is committed to supporting children and families in continuous learning, and we are off to a great start! On Monday, March 30th, students began using the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) to access coursework with teachers.


Student Expectations for Online Learning
Virtual Teacher-Led Instruction is conducted by your child's teacher(s) and grades for fourth quarter began Monday, March 30th

  • NEW - Attendance for students is entered weekly (Monday, 8:00am, to the following Monday, 7:59am) based on activity in the Canvas LMS or other communication

  • NEW - beginning April 6th - For elementary students, the duration of Related Arts (Art, Music, Instructional Resource-IR, and Physical Education-PE) has been updated from approximately 15 minutes each day to approximately 10 minutes each day beginning on April 6th

    As all assignments are flexible, students may choose to complete activities for a particular area in one or two days, instead of working on the assignment daily

  • Students are expected to log in to Canvas daily ( and regular activity is necessary for these eLearning days to count as part of the 180-day academic calendar

  • Students may work flexibly throughout the day as multiple children may be using one device in a home and assignment submission is within a week (not daily). Please review directions from your child’s teacher for specific expectations
