Click here for frequently asked questions about signing in to MyData Portal. For more detailed information, use the "Help" button in the light-blue navigation bar.

When you send an electronic message, be certain you include the names of the pages or rosters you are using. This shortens our response time, especially if we can avoid replying with additional questions. Please include your campus or department name.

You must submit a non-teacher account request form with proper signatures to have a locked account reactivated. (Teachers submit a security oath to the campus account manager, not to our department.) Submission of the form protects the confidentiality of student and teacher information.

E-MAIL SECURITY: E-mail messages, even those sent between district users, are not secure communication. For this reason, it is imperative no confidential information be sent via e-mail. Do not send Social Security Numbers or passwords in an e-mail message. For identification, use only first and last names as recorded with Human Development (no nicknames or middle names) or your employee ID.
