Home Base and PowerSchool Portals
Home Base is a collection of instructional apps used by North Carolina Public Schools, which includes PowerSchool. The PowerSchool Parent/Student Portals give parents and students access to real-time information including attendance, grades and assignments. In CHCCS, this option is available to all Middle and High School parents and students. We plan to launch Home Base/PowerSchool for Elementary families in 2020-21.With PowerSchool, 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/PowerSchool. Secondary students (grades 6-12), must claim their account through the NCEdCloud to access PowerSchool and any other HomeBase application (get NCEdCloud instructions).Elementary students will receive information regarding their accounts from their teachers starting in 2020-21 school year.Hints for students when claiming your account:
- Make sure you are entering the birthday in the correct format. (YYYYMMDD). For example, if the birthday is August 16, 2001, enter 20010816
- Only answer five (5) of the security question options.
- Chrome is the preferred browser for NCEdCloud. If denied access to NCEdCloud, take the following steps:

For Parents / Guardians
Step 1. Complete the access request forms.
Hand deliver the completed access request form to the school. Notarized forms can be mailed to your child’s school. Download the notary public form or the photo ID form below. Check with your school to make sure a notarized form is being accepted.
Step 2. Receive your access letter and instructions.
Once your child's school has verified your forms, they will provide you with a welcome letter with a link to a Quick Guide. This letter will include the access code and password to create an account within the Parent Portal.
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 (links below). When you are ready, you can create an account here: chccs.powerschool.com/public.
Your child's school Data Manager is your point of contact to receive a Parent Portal Access letter with instructions. Please contact your school's Data Manager if you have not received your letter.
Step 4. Link your children to your account.
A single Parent Portal account can be linked to multiple children. 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. You will need a letter from the school data manager for each child you wish to add. 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.
