Student Information
The North Carolina Student Information System (SIS) is the official Home Base application used statewide by the Public Schools of North Carolina. It houses all aspects of student data including demographics, grades, attendance, etc. One of its many great features is the Parent Portal module that gives parents and students access to grades and teacher assignments via online.
NC SIS, implemented in the summer of 2013, is the first of many new applications linked together under the Home Base system. Once completed, the Home Base platform will comprise the Student Information System and the Instructional Improvement System.


PowerSchool, the product which is used as North Carolina's Student Information System, is an electronic student accounting system, an Internet-based software package that provides student and school information management capabilities. Data are stored centrally and accessed and reported in a safe, secure manner across the Internet. PowerSchool supports the data analysis and reporting requirements of education initiatives such as the North Carolina’s ABCs of Public Education accountability program, and Closing the Achievement Gap. PowerSchool offers unprecedented opportunities for local educators to use technology to help them make better instructional and business decisions in their schools.
