Home Base Parent Portal - available for families of student in grade 3 - 5
The Home Base Parent Portal gives parents and students access to real-time information including attendance, grades, and assignments. Home Base, powered by Pearson's PowerSchool application, helps keep everyone connected and informed about what is happening in the classroom. Students can keep up with assignments, parents can track their child's progress, and teachers can more easily share information about student progress with parents and students.
Using a single log-in, families with multiple students have the ability to set up their accounts to view all of their students at one time.
How do I get started?
Step 1: Complete the access request forms.
Download the access request form, complete it, and return it to your child's school. You must deliver the form to your child's school. Forms sent through students will not be accepted. You may also pick up a copy of the access request form from the data manager at your child's school.
Step 2: Wait for the access letter and instructions.
After processing your request form, school officials will provide you with a letter that includes information about how to access the portal and your child's access ID and password. Please provide schools time to process your request.
Step 3: Create the Parent Portal account.
Use the information provided in the letter to create your Parent Portal account. You can create the account by visiting https://pitt.powerschool.com/public After you have created the account online, you can then download the Parent Portal application and access the information from your mobile phone by searching Pearson Powerschool for Parents in the app store.
Step 4: Link your students to your account.
After creating your Parent Portal account, use your child's access ID and password provided on the letter from the school to view your child's data. If the access ID and password do not work, make sure you have created the Parent Portal account first.
Step 5: Enjoy staying connected to your child's education.
