Clifton, NJ - September 29, 2021 - ClassLink demonstrates its leadership in interoperability by recently earning the prestigious Ed-Fi API Consumer Badge from the Ed-Fi Alliance. Earning the badge is part of ClassLink’s continued efforts to keep technology interoperability issues from getting in the way of learning.

The Ed-Fi Alliance is a nonprofit dedicated to empowering a community of educators with real-time, comprehensive student data. As part of their work, the organization developed a set of rules for collecting, managing, and organizing educational data that allows multiple systems to share their information in a seamless, actionable way.

The Ed-Fi API Consumer Badge is awarded to solution providers that have developed a robust Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering that adheres to Ed-Fi’s rigorous quality, availability, and transparency standards.

Earning this badge demonstrates ClassLink’s continued support for technology interoperability. ClassLink now supports functionality across both the Ed-Fi Alliance and OneRoster standards, providing schools with the ability to share and manage data swiftly and securely.

“We’re proud to continue to support data interoperability and the many benefits it offers schools through our work with Ed-Fi. We’re committed to ending the technology inefficiencies that slow the important work of teachers and tech teams when it comes to supporting students and their learning.”

Patrick Devanney
VP of Interoperability Services, ClassLink

“We are thrilled to award the Ed-Fi API Consumer Badge to ClassLink, a leader in access, analytics, and identity management solutions for schools so that their technology can read data out of an Ed-Fi defined API and integrate the data into its product. With this distinction, schools that adopt ClassLink can be confident that the platform will help them achieve data interoperability and ultimately support teaching and learning.”
