SIS Integration

Last Updated: Mar 15, 2023 14:28

A SIS (student information system) manages and stores student data for districts and schools. The data can include class schedules, grades, attendance, test results, and personal information. But one problem administrators and teachers run into while using a SIS is the need to consistently update the same information within not only the SIS, but in multiple other educational applications as well. This can be very tedious and time-consuming.

However, a SIS integration service solves this problem! Rather than constantly updating student information in three different places, districts and schools can use a SIS integration service to automatically sync student information from the SIS to all of the other applications. While using one of these services with Alexandria, your patron records are automatically updated each day during Daily Operations.

Alexandria supports three services that offer SIS integration:

Clever is a software service that helps facilitate the secure transfer of student rosters between their SIS and digital learning applications.

Global Grid for Learning (GG4L) is a K-12 industry collaborative that provides schools with various EdTech tools, including the secure exchange of school roster data between applications.

You can only use one SIS integration service at a time in Alexandria. When one is enabled, the others are disabled.
