Centris Sync

Through a multi-phase technical planning and implementation process, a district may integrate demographic data from its general education student management system to Frontline IEP/Frontline RTI. The Centris Sync technology checks for database changes between the general education student information system and Frontline IEP/Frontline RTI, and regularly sends any changes automatically. This capability can work with a general education student information system that provides an automated file export in a standardized XML format in accordance with Frontline Education’s specification. The creation of the automated file export to support Centris Sync is the responsibility of the school system’s vendor. Successful implementation of Centris Sync requires careful coordination and planning between a district’s technical staff, the MHRIC, Frontline Education, and the student information system vendor. Please contact the MHRIC to explore this option further.
