Next Home Base Maintenance Weekend – Friday, Mar. 9th – Monday, Mar. 12th

Public Schools of North Carolina

Home Base

The next Home Base maintenance weekend is scheduled for Friday, March 9 through Sunday, March 11, 2018. PowerSchool and Schoolnet are both scheduled for maintenance, as well as the UID system.

PowerSchool maintenance will involve a North Carolina State Reporting Release for Common Follow-up (CFU) Reporting. In this release, the CFU-3 validation warning will be changed to a fatal error.

Schoolnet will be updated at 5 p.m. on Friday to version 19.1.4. This update will resolve the following issues:

  • Image size issues on assessments given in the legacy test browser.
  • Access to restricted test items from the student profile.

We expect Schoolnet access to be restored by 6 p.m. Friday.

The UID system servers will also undergo maintenance and scheduled upgrades during this maintenance weekend.  As a result, the Staff and Student UID systems will be unavailable during this time.

Home Base will be brought down on Friday at 5 p.m. and returned to service no later than Monday, March 12 at 6 a.m.Once maintenance is completed, a message will be sent to notify users that the systems are up and available for use. If there is a delay in bringing up the applications, users will be notified.
