Student Information System Vendor Integration
A local educational agency's (LEA's) student information system (SIS) vendor must be credentialed in the Test Operations Management System (TOMS) to send student roster information to and automatically receive transferred student data from the California Educator Reporting System (CERS).
If the LEA's SIS vendor has not yet been credentialed, refer to the SIS Vendor Credentialing Overview web page for information about credentialing and then complete the three steps required to complete this process:
Verify SIS–CERS Integration
The table that follows lists SIS vendors and whether the vendor is able to receive CERS data; when a vendor is able to receive CERS information, there is a "YES" in the SIS–CERS Integration column. Make sure your LEA has already requested a credential for the vendor to access LEA data—if your vendor provides the LEA's SSRs on the LEA's parent or student portal, the vendor is already credentialed for your LEA.
If the response in the SIS–CERS Integration column is either "Yes" or "Pending," the LEA should contact its credentialed SIS vendor directly, using the guidance provided in the SIS Contact to Request Setup column.
If the response in the SIS–CERS Integration column is "No," proceed to the next section, Arrange SIS–CERS Integration

Arrange SIS–CERS Integration
Coordinators at an LEA whose SIS vendor is not currently set up for automatic CERS integration—indicated by "No" in the SIS–CERS Integration column of the preceding table—must manually upload student rosters into CERS by following the instruction on the Manage Student Groups page of the CERS User Guide .
The LEA can start the integration process to allow an SIS to download CERS data for the LEA by completing the SIS–CERS Request Form . An LEA can provide the Application Programming Interface (API) Specifications, which provides all the necessary information to prepare the LEA's program for integration, to the SIS vendor to facilitate integration. The LEA should contact its credentialed SIS vendor directly to work out the details of importing and sharing this data.
An SIS vendor can initiate the integration for the LEA by completing the SIS–CERS Request Form . The vendor should download the Application Programming Interface (API) Specifications ; this document provides all the necessary information to prepare the LEA's program for integration.
