Teacher Access during District Shutdown - March 16, 2020 (updated)
Posted by The MiSiS Team on 3/16/2020
As communicated by the Superintendent, effective Monday, March 16, all schools will be closed through Friday, May 1 due to the Coronavirus. MiSiS has been updated to prevent teachers at comprehensive K-12 sites from submitting attendance during this time. If teachers attempt to submit attendance an error message will appear asking users to contact the Help Desk. Please do not contact the Help Desk. This is the intended behavior.
During this shutdown period, teachers at City of Angels, Carlson Home, and Continuation schools have not been disabled but are asked not to submit attendance.
Office staff at all school sites will continue to have access to attendance in order to reconcile records and update related enrollment information. Office staff should not submit attendance for dates during the shutdown period.
As a reminder, only the Principal and/or Assistant Principals may assign a new or extend access to an existing Photo Vendor for the school in the LAUSD Photo Portal. Providing access to the photo vendor allows the vendor representative to upload student photos for use in MiSiS. If the photo vendor does not have access to the Photo Portal for the school, the photo vendor will still be able to send the photos to the school site for a school staff member to upload, as a designee.
