HAC Frequently Asked Questions

A: Please be sure you are checking the correct email account. You most likely will need to contact your student’s building to verify the email address.

Q: How do I register for HAC?

A: Please see the Home Access Center User Guide for detailed instructions. Parent/Guardians must provide the district with a valid email address before attempting to register for HAC.
