FAQS

Do I have to pay for the app?

No, Lodi USD offers this resource at NO COST to our community. We believe that this valuable tool should be available to all within Lodi USD.

Is this the same as the Aeries Parent Portal?

The LodiUSD mobile app is not the same app as the Aeries Parent Portal. A user who wishes to see their individual student data within the LodiUSD mobile app must have an Aeries Parent Portal account created. The email used to log in to the Aeries Parent Portal is your Lodi USD mobile app username and the password is different.
