Home Base is a statewide, instructional improvement (IIS) and student information system (SIS) for teachers, students, parents and administrators. Teachers use Home Base to access student data and teaching and learning resources. Students can access their schoolwork, grades, and learning activities. Parents can view their child's attendance and progress, and administrators can monitor data on students, teachers and schools. Not only does Home Base put data and resources at the users' fingertips, it does so with single sign-on access to the integrated system made up of the following components: Learner Profile and Student Information; Standards & Curriculum; Instructional Design, Practice & Resources; Assessment; Data Analysis and Reporting; and Professional Development & Educator Evaluation.

Thanks for visiting the Home Base website, full of information about this suite of technology tools. Please note that in order to access the statewide Home Base product itself, each school district or charter school has its own dedicated URL. Login is required there with a password. Staff should contact their Home Base or PowerSchool coordinator at their school or district for login questions. Parents should contact their local school for more information on the parent portal.

Ready to Opt in to Home Base?
Beginning in 2014-15, all components of Home Base were made available to all districts and charter schools at no additional cost. The required portions, such as PowerSchool and Educator Evaluation, will always be free. If your district or school wishes to continue to have access to all the optional components of Home Base, free for 2014-15, you will need to opt-in at a cost next year, 2015-16. An information sheet on how to opt-in to certain Home Base features is available.
