HomeBase Information

Home Base Overview January 2012 from North Carolina Dept of Public Instruction
Weekly Message to Superintendents:
Monday, Jan. 28, 2013
As we move forward with school technology, digital learning and so forth, there are vendors and contractors approaching local education agencies and charter schools to offer services or assistance. This is true even for products such as PowerSchool where the state has already contracted for services. Vendors are offering additional services or assistance to facilitate the change from eSIS to PowerSchool. There have been regional conferences and non-Pearson PowerSchool User Groups where these extras are being offered. While many of these groups and vendors are extremely reputable and offer reliable services, I hope you and your staff realize that some of the specific functionality within PowerSchool as North Carolina has purchased it is still being defined and finalized. That may present some unique issues for your implementation if third-party vendors become involved with you and don't know about North Carolina's specific requirements. Buyer beware is a good reminder. Please watch your e-mail, newsletters and other resources for additional updates on the PowerSchool component of Home Base. If you have any questions about this, please contact the NCDPI Service Center at homebase.incidents@its.nc.gov.
