Basically, head to bsdvt.instructure.com and hit the ‘Don’t know your password?’ link in the login window. Type in your Canvas user name (full BSD email address) and you will receive an email and link within for a password change.

Parents go to:
(same address as your student)
and click on 'Click Here For and Account'
At the next screen, just fill out the fields required, and check that they agree to the terms, and click the 'Start Participating' button.
Once you fill in the information requested and click 'Start Participating' you will receive an email with directions.
NOTE: Parents with multiple kids in the system will need to complete this process for each child. Once they've done so, they will see all their children in their account.
Once the parent / guardian has logged into Canvas, via the Settings menu on the left of their screen, parents can set their own communications preferences.
To login, parents go to the same address as their kids:
Parents can change their own passwords (if they remember their email address by going to that same main login screen and selecting 'Don't know your password?'
Parent associations with kids can be separated in Canvas if problems arise ( divorce, legal issues, etc) easily.
