Student Emails: How to Activate / Reset Passwords

Student eMails Are Now Self-Service! 


Students may activate and reset passwords for their LAUSD email accounts on their own.  

Before students go to the website they must have these 3 pieces of information:

  1. Your District ID (on your ID card)
  2. Your date of birth
  3. Your Student PIN (Personal Identification Number)

Students may get their PIN from any of their teachers or from an administrator who has access to their information in MyData.


TEACHERS: Here are instructions for generating a list of student emails and PINs for each class.


Once a student has all these items follow these steps:


1. Click on this link to set or reset your LAUSD password

2. Select Student 

3. Agree to the terms and condition in the Acceptable Use Policy

4. Enter your Student ID# for District ID.  Use lowercase for the letters. 

5. Enter your birthdate in this format: MM/DD/YYYY

7. Follow the directions to set your password.  Be sure to write down your email address and save your password in a secure and private location.

Why activate your LAUSD email? 

Though there are many options for email accounts, here are some advantages to having an LAUSD email:

· Allows you to keep your school and personal emails separate

· Will always be able to access on or off campus without firewalls or blocks

· Allows you to download ebook and use advanced features of the Library Destiny Catalog

· Allows you to access LAUSD subscription services off-campus.

- Allows you to access Google Classroom as well as any other app that will let you sign in through Google. 



The C5LA Program at John Muir!

C5LA is a five-year youth leadership development program that begins with eighth graders and is designed to inspire high-potential, at-risk youth from under-resourced environments in Los Angeles to obtain higher education and personal success.


Our goal is for our youth to graduate high school, attend college and become productive, happy and successful adults who will live the C5 mission as “make a difference” adult leaders in their communities. C5 delivers five years of intensive leadership experiences in adventure camp settings, year-round leadership development programs, community service forums, and preparation for college and career development.


The focus on “C” is all about College but for our youth it often means so much more…


For years, since inception in 2000, we have found that most of our youth often create their own meaning for C5. Life has been a challenge for many of them, and the C5 program gives them something to hold onto, something they can rely on and help them better their lives and see a brighter future. For some, the focus is on five years of “Change,” while others might focus on five years of creating opportunities and “Choice.” But the one thing you can be sure of, is that all of our youth are now including “College” as a realistic option for them where that might not have been the case in the past. So we continue to ask our youth, “WHAT’S YOUR 5?” and the answers are always inspiring.


Congratulations and Best of Luck to the Applicants from the Class of 2020!


These students have completed the written application and have taken the first step in what could be a life changing experience!  Best of luck to those students who applied and we are excited to see who is selected for the program this year!

Girls in STEM

In October 2015, 44 teams of middle and high school girls from across LA County signed up to participate in the Girls Build LA Challenge. Their assignment was to identify the challenges facing their schools and communities, and then, with support from the LA Fund, begin to address those challenges.


After months of work, the girls presented their projects—spanning three focus areas: Health & Wellness, Civic Engagement & Leadership, and STEM & College Access—to a panel of judges at the Girls Build LA Expo on May 14, 2016. The girls were competing to win college scholarships. The judges reviewed the participants' efforts and presentations, and then chose six winning teams. The LA Fund awarded over $50,000 to the members of the winning teams.



First Place - John Muir Middle School

The winning middle school team, #GirlsCan2, took on the issue of female representation in STEM careers. They started conversations with younger students about gender and racial inequalities in STEM; increased the representation of female role models in STEM on their school campus; and launched a campaign to change student perceptions of gender within the STEM field by creating engaging, hands-on teaching tools that can be delivered to classrooms across Los Angeles: Women of Color in STEM Starter Kits.
