Now Home Portal for Students and Parents
The Baldwin County Public School System is pleased to announce that the INow Home Portal is now available. Parents and students now have the ability to view grades, attendance, discipline, schedule, assignment, and demographic data for students just as they did in the past.
Please note, you will be prompted to login twice and will have to enter both logins every time you log into the Home Portal! Please carefully read all of the instructions below.
At the first login prompt:
Use the user name: homeuser
Use the password: homeuser1
At the second login prompt (the InformationNOW page):
Type the user name provided to you by your school.
Type the password for this account.

The password you need to enter is: homeuser1
(Please note that the password is case sensitive so you must type the password in exactly as it is shown above.)

You will enter the password provided on your student's login slip into the ‘Old Password:' field and then enter your newly created password two times below (as seen in the image on the right). Security is paramount - your new password must be at least eight (8) characters long, must contain a mixture of alpha and numeric characters, and is case-sensitive. Do NOT share your password with others!
