Once BOE staff are logged into NavigateLA, they will be able to click on the MapNotes Icon (photo) (re-login may be required and BOE staff MapNotes Icon on Main Pagemay have to use the District login at this point) and the MapNotes tool bar will appear.  MapNotes should be placed as close as possible to the location being discussed.  MapNotes are not visible unless a BOE staff member is logged in.
