Home Base Single Sign-on
What is IAM?
The IAM Service will be replacing the PowerSchool login after 2014-2015 End-of-Year processing. The cutover date is July 6th, 2015. After the cutover, all North Carolina K-12 students and employees will login to Home Base applications using their NCEdCloud Username and password. The accounts are currently available and LEAs and Charter School can begin providing their students and employees their accounts at any time. Employees can click on the "Claim My Account" button above. Student accounts will likely be issued by their teachers, who have access to their students' usernames and initial passwords.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) is one of the NCEdCloud initiatives for the K-12 community of North Carolina. The IAM Service provides LEAs and Charter Schools a tool to help manage the authentication and authorization needs of their students, employees, and guests (and eventually parents) in accessing cloud-based resources. It provides self-service capabilities to all end users and delegated administrator capabilities to LEA and Charter School technology leadership. The actual service is being provided by Identity Automation and the IAM infrastructure is hosted in Amazon's AWS environment. This service provides unlimited scaling as well as a world class high availability platform.
