integration with Aspen
Our district is converting to the Aspen(Follett) student information system in July. We would like to have it upload information to Swis so that we can get away from double entering data. Do you have any experience doing this with Aspen and is it possible for us to implement this once we are up and running? If not what are the steps for manually uploading data and is there a template that is used? Thank you.
I am the SWIS Integration Specialist.
We are currently working with a DataLink Beta District that uses Aspen. They have not completed the process so they have not been uploading data from Aspen to SWIS.
However, DataLink is a Student Information System (SIS) neutral process that uses staff, student and referral download files from an SIS and then uploads the data into SWIS. Most of the current DataLink Beta users upload data nightly.
DataLink has not been released, but is should be released next school year. A specific release date has not been established.
At the present time there isn't a manual uploading process into SWIS for referrals but there is for Person Import. Person Import allows a school to upload staff and students from within SWIS.
For more information on SWIS integration go to PBISApps.org and under Applications you can select Integration. Once on the Integration web page you can review all integration options and download technical documentation.
