    MiSiS Announcements


    Decommissioning LAUSDMAX

    The ISIS application, LAUSDMAX, will be decommissioned on Friday, July 8, 2016. After this date, users will no longer be able to log in and use the application. The data will be backed up and stored in the event that it is needed in the future. Most data from LAUSDMAX has been migrated to other applications (MyData and MiSiS) as well as other repositories. As a reminder, edit rights to the application were disabled in early July 2014.

    The NYE Process will make its final run on June 30, 2016 at the close of the 2015-2016 school year. Student enrollment changes for the 2016-2017 school year will require manual processing. An update will be provided to schools when the Auto-Withdrawal feature becomes available.
