Data Integration

  • Agenda

    Objective: Meet your Data Integration Specialist and discuss secure transfer of data from all applicable systems into the Blackboard Communications portal via Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

    NOTE: Blackboard is dedicated to helping keep your information secure so please, don’t ever email staff, parent, or student files. These should be shared through the established SFTP site.

    • Confirm Systems for Integration. File specifications for each data type can be accessed via:
      • Student Information System
      • Cafeteria Management System (optional)
      • Transportation Management System (optional)


    Tasks to Complete

    • Install Data Transfer software, if applicable
    • Use existing, or create own, queries
    • Send data files and confirm data is coming over
    • Set schedule(s) for daily file transfers
    • Follow up with Data Integration Specialist until data integration is complete and ready for verification
