Bio:
I started using Canvas and became a Canvas admin for K-12 in 2015 when I was the Computing Services Coordinator for a local school district. In the summer of 2019, I transitioned to an Academic Technology Specialist focusing on Canvas for Higher Ed. Since 2008 and prior to Canvas, I used Angel, Blackboard, and My Big Campus.

After reading everything about what it takes to see the VPAT, I too am now questioning turning this tool off.  I have lost track of how many companies we have vetted and while some do require "contrac...
