Integrating with SIS Systems
For schools using Student Information Systems (SIS), Clever seamlessly connects those platforms. This enables single sign-on and automated provisioning/de-provisioning of user accounts. Administrators should integrate their SIS of choice (ex, PowerSchool, Infinite Campus, etc.) within the Clever District Dashboard to get started. This process involves entering API keys to establish permission read/write access. Once complete, user data like rosters and enrollments are dynamically synced between the SIS and Clever. This automation saves time and ensures accurate and up-to-date information between systems for a holistic student experience.
