    Below is information about technology support for students and parents. If you have additional questions, please contact the helpdesk or visit the Information Technology Division's website.

  • Parent Portal

    The Los Angeles Unified Parent Portal is your one-stop online tool for important information about your child. Using the Parent Portal, you can view your child’s assignments and grades, attendance, test scores, and much more. It is also important to have access to the Parent Portal so that you can ensure that the school has your correct contact information.

    A personal identification number (PIN) is required to access your child’s information through the Parent Portal. This PIN is used to verify you are the actual parent or guardian and have rights to the student’s information. You will need to contact your child’s school to receive your PIN in order to complete your Parent Portal registration. If you have questions about the Parent Portal or need support with registration, please call the Los Angeles Unified family hotline at (213) 443-1300.
