What is the Home Base Student Portal?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.
Secondary students (grades 6-12), must claim their account through the NCEdCloud to access PowerSchool and any other HomeBase application (get NCEdCloud instructions). Claim account help video.
Elementary students will receive information regarding their accounts from their teachers. This will begin once the elementary level begins using HomeBase applications.

Because PowerSchool allows access to student data, it is highly recommended that all users passcode protect these apps. Without a passcode, practically all information on your mobile device may be viewable by anyone who gets their hands on it. This includes email and student information!
To configure a passcode on iPhones and iPads, go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock. See this link to learn more: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4113
Android devices vary, but you should be able to set a passcode in Settings. Once in Settings, look for Security, Lock Screen, or Screen Lock.
