Canvas is UCFSD's Learning Management System or LMS. It’s an organizational framework for students to interact with teachers and courses, all in one place. Students will be able to login to Canvas from the high school website and see all their courses, assignments, announcements and a calendar. NOTE: PowerSchool will still be the place of record for all course grades.
Students use their campus login to access Canvas and should stop by the tech office (room 245) if they are having difficulties logging in.
Parents may also sign up for a Canvas "Observer" account. Parents (Observers) can link their Canvas account to their student's account so they can see assignment dues dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.
PowerSchool is the UCFSD student information system. Both students and parents/guardians have access into the system via the high school website. Primarily, students will use PowerSchool to check class schedule, grades, and request course placement for the next school year.
Students use their campus login to access PowerSchool and should visit the tech office (room 245) if they are having difficulties logging in.
Parents may also sign up for an account. Parents can use this account to also see their child's class schedule and grades as well as attendance reports. Parents can also schedule emailed grade notifications with this account.

Unionville-Chadds Ford School District utilizes the web filtering solution, Securly. This solution was implemented in 2017 to help keep students safe on their school-issued devices.
Starting in September 2019, you will receive a weekly email from Securly.comthat will show you a preview of your child’s online activity. To receive access to their full online activity history, you can enter the free Parent Portal.
If you do not wish to receive the weekly email from Securly, simply click unsubscribe in the bottom left corner of the email.
To enter the Parent Portal, click on the "go to my parent portal" link, or the “sign up” link at the bottom of your weekly email. You will be asked to check two boxes and then click “Yes, please set up my account.” Once you do this, you will receive an email with login and password information. After you set up your account, you can enter the Parent Portal anytime by going towww.securly.comand clicking on “login" then "parent".
The Parent Portal contains three categories on the left from which you can choose:
1. Activity (shows a real-time audit trail of your child's online activity)
2. Flagged (shows posts made on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ that have been flagged by Securly as potentially related to self-harm or bullying
3. Settings (allows you to control content on the device at home only)
