You can automatically sync and authenticate your students, teachers and classrooms from Clever into School Manager.

Clever will sync and update your users once a week between 12:01 AM Saturday and 11:59 PM Sunday in your device's time zone. However, you can manually run a sync to get updates anytime.

Before you begin:

You will need your Clever District admin login credentials.

Integrating Clever

  1. Go to Configuration > Authentication > Clever in School Manager.
  2. Select Enabled.
  3. Select Login with Clever.
    The Clever Log in page will be displayed.
  4. Login with your Clever credentials. Verify your District ID is correct.
  5. Next, identify the school you want to sync by one of the following methods:
    1. Searching for your School name
    2. Using Clever Badge log in
    3. Using your District admin log in

  1. Select the options you need to manage your users:
Option Description
Match Users By Name

Match your users by their first name and last name to their Azure AD, Google or LDAP identity.

For example, if there is a student called "Jess Datos" and you are using Google Workspace. School Manager will match first name and last name for the student in both systems and import their contact details, classes, and parents details from Clever.

Force Unique Class Names

The internal ID and a unique name using the name of the class will be imported from Clever to ensure no classes have the same name.

For example, if a class in Clever has the name Classroom1 and has an internal ID 12345, enabling this checkbox will import the class as Classroom1 - 12345 in School Manager.

Sync Parent Data This syncs the parent contact details and their relationship with the students with our systems.
  1. Select Sync.
  2. Once the sync is complete, a Sync Status summary will be displayed in School Manager.
