    MiSiS Announcements: 

    Procedures for Student Photos 

    As schools are starting to hold their Picture Day, Principals are encouraged to visit the LAUSD Photo Portal (https://photoportal.lausd.net) to manage their student photos.  Student photos that are uploaded to the LAUSD Photo Portal by the school or authorized photo vendor will appear in MiSiS within 24-48 hours.  Several job aids are available, as well as a checklist, to help schools manage their photos.  Please visit https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/11923 to view the checklist and student photo job aids. 

    Manage Grades by Class 

    Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, the ability to enter and edit report card grades/marks in MiSiS will no longer be available to secondary teachers on comprehensive campuses. Secondary teachers must enter progress, midterm, and final report card grades and comment codes using the ‘MiSiS Grade Passback’ app within Schoology. This change only affects grade entry for teachers at comprehensive secondary campuses. Teachers at Options and Continuation schools will still be able to enter grades directly within MiSiS using the ‘Manage Grades by Class’ screen.  

    Office Staff at all school types will still be able to enter grades directly within MiSiS using the ‘Manage Grades by Class’ screen. 

     

    The following items have been enhanced/corrected in MiSiS: 

    Enrollment
