Home Access Center FAQ's

How do I create a login?
  • First, you must have an email address on file with your child’s school. If you do not have an email address on file, please contact your child’s school.
  • All cities are abbreviated in the student database. When registering, please be sure to enter your city as follows: St Charles, S Elgin, W Chicago
  • Then watch the registration video on the district website to create a login and get registered on the system.
  • After you have registered a login, and you would like to login to the system, just click the link above that says, ‘To login to Home Access Center, click here’.
Do I have 1 login for each child or 1 login only?
  • Each parent will only have 1 login, and it will show all of the students you have in the district. If you do not see all of your children listed when you login to the system, please contact the school of the child who is not listed, so they can adjust the information in the system.
How do I reset my username and password?
  • A parent can login to Home Access Center and change their own password in the upper right hand corner of the screen, by clicking on My Profile.
  • A school can reset your password, or delete your username for you, so you can re-register as long as we have an email address on file for you.
  • If you need to change your email, please email your school secretary from the email address you would like to change it to, and they can change it on the system for you.
Who do I contact about incorrect information?
  • If it is information regarding your students’ demographic information, please contact the school that your child attends.
How do I remove my work phone number from the ConnectEd calling system?
I am not familiar with all the grade letters that I am seeing. What are they and how do they affect the average grade?
  • The following letter grades can be used by all teachers:
  • L = Late
  • C = Complete
  • I = Incomplete
  • E = Excused
  • M = Medical
  • These grades do NOT count against the student’s average.
  • I keep seeing ungraded assignments when looking at classwork. Do these affect the overall score?
  • No. In this system teachers can enter assignments in advance so that parents know what is coming up. On the Classwork tab you can see the date the assignment was assigned or is going to be assigned, and the date it is due. Scores are not calculated into the students’ average until the due date arrives.
What does the bubble mean?
  • Next to some classes, or even the assignments, you might see a little comment bubble, like you see below. Click those to see comments that a teacher has given regarding your child, or their work on an assignment. You could find these on the main daily summary page or the classwork tab.

  • Also, anytime you see a blue underlined item, it is a hyperlink to something else. For example, click a homework assignment title and you can get more information regarding that assignment. Or hover your mouse over a teachers name and in the lower left hand corner of your internet browser it will tell you their email address so you can email them. Or, if you have a default email set up, like Outlook, it will automatically open a new email address with the teachers’ email in the TO: line.
