Answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Parent Illuminate accounts and emergency cards

A note about technical issues:

  • To look up your personal access code, you need to be sure you are entering specifically what is asked for: student ID, student’s last name, parent’s first name, and just the street number of student’s address.
  • Once you’ve logged in, please do not worry if your student is listed at their prior school of attendance. This will resolve itself on the first day of school.
  • There are a few cases in which siblings do not appear together in the same parent account. If you find this to be the case, please send an email to illuminatehc@berkeley.netincluding all of your students’ names, school(s) of attendance, and grade and let us know.
  • If you already have an Illuminate account you can log-in here. Your username is your email address and, if necessary you can use the “forgot password” button to reset your password.

Thank you for your patience as we work to get all families connected.

If you continue to encounter a technical issue in trying to set up your account, please email or contact school registrar Joann Marshall at (510) 644-6388.
