    Student Photos 

    Access to the LAUSD Photo Portal will end on 06/30/2020 for all photo vendors. 

    Beginning July 1, Principals may begin granting access to next year’s photo vendor by changing the date to “06/30/2021”. 

    • If your school will be continuing your partnership with the current photo vendor, Principals may log in to the LAUSD Photo Portal and extend the date to “06/30/2021”. 
    • If your school will be seeking partnership with a new photo vendor, and the vendor already has access to the LAUSD Photo Portal, Principals may log in to the LAUSD Photo Portal to grant access to the new vendor and assign “06/30/2021” as an ending date. 
    • If the new vendor does not have access to the LAUSD Photo Portal, please have the vendor review the Student Photo Checklist for further instructions on how the vendor may apply for access.  

    Please note that only the Principal may enter this date. 

    For granting and authorizing vendor access to the Photo Portal, please refer to the Schools section of the Student Photos job aids on the MiSiS website.
