What’s the purpose of my web page?
All teachers have an official web page on their school’s website.
If you haven’t updated your web page yet, it will look generic with your name at the top and no information in the content area.
You’re encouraged to use your web page in whatever way you would like to help your parents and students.
You might want to:
- Include a bio and photo of yourself
- Post links to helpful websites and lesson plans
- Add your syllabus
- Link to your Canvas classroom
- Attach a photo gallery of your classroom activities
- Post a video of yourself with an encouraging message
These are all good examples of what you can do with your web page.
How do parents/students find my web page?
Your web page is located on your school’s website.
Parents and students can find it by selecting the following menu: Faculty & Staff > Teacher Directory.
Each teacher listed in the directory has a link to their respective web page.
Parents and students can also type your name into the search field to quickly find your web page.
Another option is to include the website address (URL) of your web page in any documentation you might give to your parents and students.
How do I get access to my web page?
To access your webpage, open a web browser and type in your school’s website address.
In the bottom left-hand corner, there’s a pop-up menu called “Teacher Access”.
Click on “Teacher Access” to expose the menu.
Select “Teacher Web Page Login” and a login screen will appear where you can type your email address and password.
How do I change my password?
If you don’t know your password or you want to change your password, click on the “Lost your password?” link underneath the login box.
An email will be sent to you with a link to verify your email address and you can reset your password there.
What’s the difference between my web page and Canvas?
Your web page is your official home base at Provo City School District. It’s hosted and maintained by district technology support and it will always be there for your parents and students to access.
Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS) created to connect teachers to their students. It’s hosted by an outside company called Instructure. The purpose of Canvas is to help you to interact directly with your students online, giving them assignments and other materials.
If you use Canvas, make sure you add a link to your Canvas classroom from your web page.
How do I get help building and maintaining my web page?
If you have any questions or need help at any time, please go to https://tech.provo.edu/ and open a work order. Select “School/District Website” as the request type and let us know what you need help with.
Tutorials are also available after you log in to edit your web page. They‘re located at the top of the left column.
If you aren’t listed in the Teacher Directory, please submit a work order and request to be added.
