ABOUT HOMEBASE

  • home base 

     
    Home Base is a statewide student information system that replaced NCWISE and SPAN starting in the 2013-14 school year. Home Base gives parents and students access to real-time information including attendance, grades and assignments. With Home Base, powered by Pearson's PowerSchool application, everyone stays connected: Students stay on top of assignments, parents are able to participate in their child's progress, and teachers can instantly share information from their gradebook with parents and students. Families with multiple students can also set up their accounts to view all of their students at one time, with one login.

    All middle and high school students have access to Home Base.

    Getting Started

    Step 1. Complete the access request forms. 
    Hand delivered the completed access request form to the school. Notarized forms can be mailed to your child’s school. Download the notary public form  or photo ID form.

    Step 2. Wait for your access letter and instructions. 
    Once your child's school has verified your forms, they will provide you with a welcome letter and a Quick Guide

    Step 3. Create a Parent Portal account. 
    Use the information you received in your letter to create your Parent Portal account. For help creating an account, download directions. When you are ready, you can create an account here: wcpss.powerschool.com/public.

    Step 4. Link your students to your account. 
    Once you’ve created your Parent Portal account, use the access ID and password provided on the letter from the school to view your child’s data. Does your access ID and password still not work? Make sure you’ve created your Parent Portal account first. Still having issues? Download and read the directions.
