LAUSD Photo Portal

Principals are encouraged to review their designee(s) annually in the LAUSD Photo Portal.  To view the staff member(s) who currently has/have access to the school site, click on the Designee tile.  If a staff member should no longer need access, click on the “remove” button under the Action column.  Refer to the Granting Access to Photo Vendors and Assigning Designee job aid for instructions on how to add a designee.

The following items have been enhanced/corrected in MiSiS:

Students in grades 8, 11 and 12 are eligible to take no more than one service-like course per semester, for a maximum of two per year, for the selected grade level.
