Our Commitment to Interoperability

Our commitment to interoperability stems from our aim to help our district partners get the most from their technology investment. When Skyward works seamlessly with the other systems your district uses, your life gets a little bit easier. And that’s what a better SIS experience looks like.


Standards & Certifications

The Ed-Fi data standard makes for easier integration between systems, including time savings, improved data accuracy, streamlined state reporting, and more local control over data.
SIF Specifications
The Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) provides guidelines for creating a secure, efficient, and cost-effective plan for sharing data between applications in pre-K–12 instructional and administrative settings.
IMS Global
Skyward's SMS 2.0 and Qmlativ solutions have been certified for OneRoster Compliance and certified for Data Privacy in the 1EdTech TrustEd Apps Product Directory.



In addition to interoperability, we are also committed to improving secure access and keeping personal data private. We expect our edtech partners to do the same. Learn more about the commitments we’ve made below.

"[Qmlativ] contained the most important qualities we look for in education technology: accessibility, attentiveness to district needs, in tune with national, state, and local changes, instant support, and a continuously evolving product."

Dr. R.J. Gravel Glenbrook High School District 225, IL
