- Schools Interoperability Frameworksearch for term
The Schools Interoperability Framework (SIF) is an industry initiative to develop an open specification for ensuring that K-12 instructional and administrative software applications interact and share data seamlessly. SIF is not a product, but rather an industry-supported technical blueprint for K-12 software. For additional information about SIF, see the Schools Interoperability Framework Web site at www.sifinfo.org. Connecting the applications with a common framework allows you to enter information once in an authoritative information source, such as a student information system, and then publish that information so other systems can be updated automatically.
