Home Page

On this page:

The Home page is a single location that lets you easily access all the Teacher Access Center (TAC) capabilities. For example, you can quickly access a wide variety of pages from the My Classes pane. Some examples include the Gradebook, Report Card, Interim Progress, Attendance, and Classroom Issues pages. The News pane displays district-published news, and the Reports pane stores links to your previously-run reports.

The TAC banner and the TAC Navigation bar display on all TAC pages to make your workflow efficient. You can access all TAC pages (including pages not accessible from the My Classes pane of the home page) from the TAC Banner and Navigation Bar which display at the top of each TAC page.

The Teacher Access Home page provides access to enter lunch counts, view news, and access your reports.

My Classes Pane

The My Classes pane provides a listing of your classes, activities, homerooms, and your student competency groups. Above each grouping of class rows is a building-identifier row that identifies the building and staff member for the course. If you have courses in more than one building, each building will include a building-identifier row above those courses. Course rows may also include icons for additional actions you can take related to the course. The column headers are: Period, Course, Attendance, Grade, Issues, and HAC News (which only displays if your building has HAC News configured).

- Click to display the Emergency Attendance page. This button only displays if the Emergency Attendance feature is enabled.

View selector

The View selector lets you determine what content displays.

Options always include:

  • Current RC Run - all classes (scheduled and/or student competency groups) you teach in the current report card run for the building. It also lists any homerooms assigned to you. The current report card run is based on the building's Mark Reporting configuration.
  • All Classes - all classes (scheduled and/or student competency groups), homerooms, and activities, even if no students are enrolled.
  • My Classes - same as All Classes, except this view excludes classes with no students.
  • Today's Attendance - all classes or homerooms that you takes attendance for on today's date.

Below these items, options are based on the report card runs defined for the building. If you have four RC Runs, you will see RC Run:1, RC Run: 2, RC Run: 3, RC Run: 4. When you select one of these options, the list displays all homerooms and classes you teach in the selected report card run.

(Lunch Counts)

Click to launch the Lunch Counts dialog to enter the total number of students buying a specific lunch option. Your building may configure Lunch Counts to not display on your TAC Home page. When you enter lunch counts, enter the total value. For example, if you had already saved a lunch count that indicated that nine students were buying lunch option A and you needed to update the count to add one more student, you would enter 10 for lunch option A. To save the information entered, click Save. Click X to close.

If applicable, the period in which the class meets is listed in this column. If the class is an activity, ACT displays in this column. If the course is a competency group, CPT displays. If the class is an eligibility group, ELI displays.


Each item displayed is also a link to its class roster. To display a tool tip with the cycles, marking period, and meeting room number, move the mouse pointer over the course name. A number of items can be displayed in the Course column, and they include:

    • Your classes. General meeting information about the courses you teach is displayed.
    • Your homerooms.

    • Your eligibility groups.

      Note: The list of competency groups does not include competencies associated with a course.
