HOME BASE POWERSCHOOL PARENT PORTAL

To create a Parent Portal account, add your child to the account, and begin accessing your child's school information, please follow the steps listed below. If you already have a Parent Portal ID and password, you may log in here.

 
The Home Base "Parent Portal" is a statewide student information system that 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 track their child's progress, and teachers can instantly share information from their gradebook with parents and students.
 
Step 1. Complete the Application for Access form.
Before you can receive instructions on how to set up an online Home Base "Parent Portal" account and begin accessing your child’s information, you must complete the two-page “Application for Access” form. If you have not received an application from the school or if you have misplaced yours, it is available here.   (Spanish version)
 
If you mail the application form to your child's school, the form must be notarized (see page 2 of the form).
 
If you hand-deliver the application form to your child's school, you do not need to have the form notarized, but you will be asked to provide a photo ID to appropriate school staff.
 
Please do not fax or email the form. Incomplete or illegible forms will not be processed. If you have more than one child in the Randolph County School System, you must submit an application for each child to his/her school.

Step 2. Wait for your letter and instructions from your school.
Once your child’s school has verified your forms, you will receive from the school a packet that includes the following:
*A page that includes your access ID and password. If you misplace your access ID and password, please contact the school.
*Four pages of Instructions for setting up your Parent Portal account and adding your child to the account. If you misplace these instructions, they are available here (Spanish version)
*A page of Frequently Asked Questions, which is also available here.
 
Step 3. Create a Parent Portal account.
Use the information you received in your letter from the school to create your "Parent Portal" account and add your child to the account. When you are ready, you can create an account here:https://randolphco.powerschool.com/public/
 
Step 4. Link an additional child to the account (If you have more than one child in RCSS).
Once you’ve created your Parent Portal account and added a child to the account, you do not need to repeat the entire process to add an another child. Just log in to the Parent Portal account you created and use the access ID and password provided on the new child's letter from the school to add the child. The instructions for adding another child to your already-existing account can be found here.
 
If your access ID and password do not work, please be sure you have first created your Parent Portal account.

If you have questions or need information, please take a moment to read the FAQ Page before contacting the school.
