Sensitive Information

Student information is legally protected and is only to be shared with other employees who normally have access to that information. Sensitive information should be treated with care once is it transferred to a local computer. It should not be shared by non-secure mechanisms, particularly email. If you have reason to believe that an intentional or unintentional release of confidential information has occurred, notify the Planning, Assessment and Research Division, Elementary Student Information Systems at (213) 241-4617.

Password Criteria

Please be informed of the following criteria when selecting or changing your password:

User Block

If you make five (5) consecutive failed attempts to log in, your access to OPR and/or SOAR will be blocked for 6 hours. Because of this, it is recommended that after four (4) unsuccessful attempts, you request that a new password be sent to your LAUSDnet email account. During business hours, you can also call Elementary SIS at (213) 241-4617 to re-establish access. DO NOT MAKE A FIFTH ATTEMPT.

Please note: if you have been “blocked” and you have requested a new password via email, you will not be able to log in until 6 hours after the “block” first occurred.
