Home Base Accounts


PowerSchool, Schoolnet, NCEES, and OpenClass logins is now streamlined with the integration of the new NC EdCloud Identity and Access Management (IAM) Service. A single sign on account from NC EdCloud will provide teachers, students and staff one login to all Home Base applications. 

Staff- Claim Your Home Base Account
Home Base users must claim their accounts to access its services.

  1. Watch this three-minute on How to Claim My Account video if necessary
  2. You will need to know four things to claim your account:
    • Date of Birth (DOB) Note: the 4-digit year is first
    • DPS LEA Code - 320
    • PowerSchool/Home Base Unique Identification (UID) (the 10 digit or less number you currently use)
    • If you do not know your staff UID and you are a school staff member, contact your school data manager. If you are a central office staff member, contact the District PowerSchool Department
  3. Claim your account - http://my.ncedcloud.org/ and click on “CLAIM MY ACCOUNT” button
  4. Once claimed, you can access all Home Base services using your new account credentials at http://my.ncedcloud.org (do not bookmark the resulting URL as it will often result in errors). 
Staff- Looking Up Home Base Login UID
New and returning staff can find their Home Base login numbers (UID) by doing the following:
  1. Go to http://hrms.dpsnc.net
  2. Click on Lookup CEUs/UID under the left column margin
  3. Enter your social-security number
  4. Click Lookup
  5. Your number will appear in bold lettering under the second empty box at the top of the screen.* 
    1. *  If you receive a "not available" message where the number should appear, Durham Public Schools Human Resources department has most likely not processed your information completely. Please contact your school's Data Manager to verify your UID.
  6. Use your UID to claim your account (see above).
