What is the Parent Portal?

At LAUSD, parents/guardians are our partners in the education and success of our students. It will connect parents/guardians to information about their child(ren)’s academic progress, including grades, attendance, A-G progress, standardized test results, and much more. It also allows parents to apply for select District programs online, directly update emergency card information and access Schoology.
