The Department of Public Instruction has implemented in all school districts across the state a system called HomeBase which includes an instructional improvement (IIS) and student information system (SIS) for teachers, students, parents and administrators.
Teachers use HomeBase to access student data and teaching and learning resources. Students can access their schoolwork, grades, and learning activities. Parents can to view their child's attendance and progress, and administrators can monitor data on students, teachers and schools. Not only does HomeBase 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.
Within HomeBase, the Student information system is known as PowerSchool – an online program that tracks each student’s attendance, grades, performance and other personal information.
We believe PowerSchool is a powerful tool to help you be a more active participant in your student’s educational success.
