Parents Urged to Setup HAC Accounts

Online Registration Coming Soon – Home Access Accounts Required

Duncanville ISD is launching online student registration this summer, in time for parents to complete all the required back to school enrollment forms for 2012-2013 digitally. Starting next year, every student must be registered through the online module, which requires parents to have Home Access Center (HAC) accounts. HAC is a one-stop web portal that allows parents to view student schedules, attendance records, grades, and academic progress through a secure web interface.

Only about 42% of current Duncanville ISD parents have HAC accounts, so the district is starting to promote HAC signup this spring in preparation for Fall 2012 Registration. “Online registration will eliminate the need for parents to fill out numerous forms by hand year after year,” said Tammy Kuykendall, Chief Communications Officer.  “We encourage our parents to setup HAC accounts before the last day of school, to ensure that when it’s time to register their student this fall, they won’t experience delays caused by a backlog of requests for new accounts.”

At the start of the next school year, parents will still need to physically visit their child’s school to complete the residency verification process that includes providing an original utility bill; however, the overall process of completing the necessary back to school paperwork will be easier. Parents who establish HAC accounts this spring will also be able to immediately begin accessing student daily information like grades, attendance, and academic progress.
