Home Base Support – Home Base is a statewide student information system that replaced NC WISE. Home Base offers tools for parents, students, teachers, and administrators. 
Schools provided access code letters to parents/guardians. Parents can link their students to their accounts, so they only have one login to access students at multiple schools. Parents now have access to assignment information, grades and attendance.  This valuable tool provides parents with a “real-time” view of their student’s progress.  If you have specific questions about the Home Base Parent Portal, please contact your child’s school directly.
