What's New!The District releases an updated version of MiSiS with software fixes and/or enhancements on a monthly basis. Browse the notes below to learn about all updates released since August 2014.
Please see the notes below to help you use MiSiS in order to prepare for the start of the new school year.
Access to MiSiS
ITD has developed and is implementing the oneAccess System for MiSiS. The goal of oneAccess is to simplify the tasks schools will need to take to process their access to student information systems. Users will be provided default access based upon defined roles and locations as updated in the SAP Payroll/Personnel system. In addition, the oneAccess System provides the ability for school users to request access online and track the status of these requests for nonstandard access requests, such as access to multiple locations or unique roles. The system has been deployed since July 31st for MiSiS. Additional systems (e.g., FOCUS, Welligent, Schoology) will be added in Fall 2018.
The attached documents (oneAccess Approver User Guide and oneAccess Approver FAQ Guide) are provided as additional resources. As a reminder, principals will have to approve some user requests to access student information. Principals: Please check the SPAM folder regularly to ensure oneAccess requests are not misdirected or left pending. Please call the MiSiS Help Desk (213-241-5200, option 5) with any issues or questions.

New Online Portal for Requesting MiSiS User Roles Now Available
oneAccess (https://oneaccess.lausd.net) is a new portal for requesting new or additional user roles in MiSiS and has replaced the legacy EZ Access Request System. This new portal will be available to all District and non-District school-based employees. Users will be able to track when their requests are submitted, manage their existing roles, and keep track of when their access is set to expire.

Please review the release notes for June 19, 2018 located in the <What’s New Section>.
The following items have been updated/fixed in MiSiS:
Starting August 1, 2018, school administrators and designees can take advantage of the Demographic Dashboard located in FOCUS to determine the students enrolled at their school. . This list will serve as a support tool for school schools by identifying new students coming into their school site and are subject to LAUSD Enrollment Procedures prior to their entry date. The NYE process will also serve as a support tool by having Pre-School and Kinder Student information populated in MiSiS, expediting the enrollment procedures and document verification. In preparation for a successful beginning of the school year, school staff is highly encouraged to reach out to new families to inform them when they may visit the school and complete the enrollment process. The Division of Special Education Operations will be supporting schools by reaching out via robo-call to parents of incoming Pre-School and Kinder families in need of completing enrollment procedures and direct them to contact their school of attendance. Your support in facilitating the enrollment procedures prior to entry date is highly appreciated.
