Shelby County Schools began utilizing the Canvas Learning Management System during the 2019-2020 school year as a method of providing educators with flexible alternatives to professional learning and support. Through Canvas, teachers have been able to learn at their own pace, on their own time and anywhere a Wi-Fi connection is available, thus making professional growth more convenient.
