School Announcements

  • Home Access Center and E-Reporting Pilot

    The City School District of New Rochelle is engaging in a pilot for the final report card (in June 2019) to evaluate the benefits of electronic reporting.  Grades 3, 4, and 5 at Davis have been selected for the pilot.

    This will mean that for the final report card of this school year, parents/guardians and students participating in the pilot will use the Home Access Center (HAC) to view their child(ren)’s report card information rather than receive a printed copy in the traditional way.

    To access the Home Access Center, log in at

    1. If you’ve never entered HAC you must register by clicking “Click Here to Register for HAC” located under the password field in small font.
    2. If you have registered previously but forgot your username and password click “Forgot my username and password” located under the password field in small font.
    3. Seek Help if you are unable to create or log in to your HAC Account
      1. Contact your schools main office
      2. Email your questions to the HAC email at:

    If you are unable to participate in the pilot, contact your school's main office for support.
