CUPERTINO, Calif., May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Claris International Inc., an Apple subsidiary, today announced the general availability (GA) of Claris Connect for Apple School Manager. Previously in beta testing, Claris Connect seamlessly integrates student information system (SIS) data into Apple School Manager in minutes.

Claris Connect is IMS Global Certified for the OneRoster® specification that supports secure sharing of roster, course, enrollment, and grades data with Apple School Manager.

In addition, low cost and rapid integration gives schools the flexibility and agility to safely add learning tools, digital content, and applications to meet diverse needs across the curriculum.

"We have been using Claris Connect to allow integration with Apple School Manager and other software packages, which gives us the flexibility to leverage software that's perfect for us."
