|Pre-Start Checklist Tasks|
|1.||Log-in to SIS: If your child hasn't already created their SIS login, have them check their email. An invitation was sent to create their login when you added them to your SIS account. Once they have a login and you have registered them for classes, SIS will within the next 15 minutes create a "Canvas" account for them where they will access course syllabi, assignments, etc. The new Canvas login will be the same as your child's SIS login.|
|2.||Purchase Books: Find a list of required books and materials in your SIS "My Students" page.|
|3.||Tech Check: Go to the Technology Requirements & Support page and

Please note that the username and password for your students' SIS account is the same username and password for their Canvas account.|
