San Lorenzo Unified School District uses the Aeries Student Information System (SIS) for a lot more than taking and reporting attendance and reporting grades. Virtually every service and communication the District provides is dependent on accurate input and output from Aeries.
Each stakeholder group has its own portal for accessing Aeries:
- Aeries Teacher Portal https://teacherportal.slzusd.k12.ca.us
Teachers use Aeries Teacher Portal to take attendance, issue report cards. Elementary teachers are starting to use the standards-based Aeries Gradebook. Most secondary teachers are transitioning to the Aeries Gradebook because it integrates with Google Classroom and makes grade reporting easier.
- Aeries.net https://do-aeries-net.slzusd.k12.ca.us
Staff that do not have assigned classes but need access to contact, attendance, grades, and discipline information access Aeries through Aeries.net. (Now that Aeries is moving away from Aeries Client Server (CS), CS will be phased out in late July, 2018.)
- Aeries Family Portal https://parentportal.slzusd.k12.ca.us
Students and parent-guardians can stay on top of attendance and grades through the Aeries Parent/Family Portal website or app.
Please visit this page often for the most recent information regarding how Aeries is being used in the District, upcoming training/conferences, and resources.

Aeries.net for Administrators and Office Staff
Aeries Client Server will be discontinued in July 2018, as it will not be rolled over for the 2018-19 school year.
As announced previously, Aeries is moving away from Aeries Client Server to fully develop Aeries.net. All staff are encouraged to discontinue logging in to Aeries Client Server so they take access all Aeries features through Aeries.net. Aeries.net is web-based and can be accessed from any computer within our District network. IT will no longer install Client Server directly to user's computer.

Aeries Teacher Portal
Teachers have been using the Aeries Teacher Portal for reporting attendance, posting end of term and progress report grades. Aeries Gradebook is also available through the Teacher Portal, and is all set up to integrate with Google Classroom. Take a look at the "Aeries-Google Classroom-Blocksi - Gradebook Work Flow" handout for more information.
