Why has North Carolina developed Home Base?

The central focus of READY is improving every student’s learning ...

…and enabling and ensuring great teaching is how we get there.

One of the ways to enable great teaching is to put powerful tools in the hands of teachers and school leaders.

What is Home Base and what does it do?

Home Base is an online tool for teaching and learning.

  • InformationThe Home Base student information system has replaced NC WISE.

  • The system allows educators to collect key data and manage student information in a secure, useful way.

  • Among other things, Home Base is used for:

  • Attendance

  • Scheduling

  • Grading

  • Transcripts

  • Parent and Student Portals

Instruction

The Home Base instructional improvement system includes a suite of standards-aligned tools to enable great teaching.

Every user has one password to enter only one time to access resources and tools.

Instructional

design, practice & resources including a Learning Management System

Assessment

Data Analysis and Reporting

Home Base has two key functions:

Educator Effectiveness

Evaluation and Professional Development

Instructional

Informational

Different users have different types of access. For example: Teachers can search for great lesson plans then create classroom assessments, crunch the resulting data to adjust instruction and communicate progress to parents – all in Home Base.

Principals can monitor ongoing benchmark assessment data, compare it to mid-year observation ratings and then access professional development to address staff needs – all in Home Base.

think: a simpler, better information system to replace NC WISE

think: a newstandards-aligned tool for instruction, assessment, data analysis and professional development

Districts and charter schools would have been asked to cost-share for the optional tools in Home Base in 2014-15 at $4 per ADM; however, Pearson has agreed to provide HB without payment this year.
