SIF Association (SIF)

Overview: The Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) develops and promotes the SIF Implementation Specification, a set of rules and definitions to enable software programs from different companies to share school and learning information. The specification defines standard formats for shared data (e.g., student demographics information); standard naming conventions for this shared data; and the rules of interaction among software applications. Implementing products that conform to the SIF Implementation Specification enables data sharing without additional programming by the local school or district and without requiring each vendor to learn and support other vendors' applications.

Specifications: Available at:

IPR Policy: See Section C, available at: See Schedule C of Membership Application, available at:
