Your username is your email​ address​ and your password ​is ​the temporary password​ you received by email. You will be required to change it ​the ​first time​ you log in. For directions on changing your password and how to set ​alerts within ​HAC, consult the Home Access Center Quick Start Guide.


Middle School and High School students can access HAC by using their student ID number (with the "s") as the username and their student password. If they do not know their student password, they can speak with the TSS or a teacher at their school.

To request a HAC account or report a problem, complete this online form and a technician will contact you via email or phone within two business days.

Due to data privacy concerns, some third-party "Apps" may not work with NISD's Home Access Center (HAC) (even if the app claims support). Northside can only provide help to those using the official HAC website.
