Dr. Mullins and Mr. Frye serve on Home Base Advisory Group

Home Base continues to evolve as a valuable and responsive digital resource for educators and schools across North Carolina. As part of the Digital Learning Initiative, NCDPI and the Friday Institute at NC State University have convened a Home Base Roadmap Advisory group with more than 20 representatives from districts and charter schools across the state.

The goal of this Advisory Group is to provide input and guidance on the goals for Home Base, recommend future improvements, and inform the overall roadmap for Home Base. This group will meet regularly, with its next meeting coming up on March 10th.  NCDPI hopes to have a “roadmap” in place for the 2017-18 school year. The photo below includes members who attended the Jan. 20 meeting of the advisory group.
