Important information about student contact data

While we offer student contact information, it is not normalized in the same way that other data is in Clever. Please note:

  • The quality and formatting of student contact data can vary between SISs
  • Contacts without sis_id populated are not stable - if any data on the contact changes (such as name, email, or phone number), the contact will be deleted and a new one will be created with a new Clever ID.

For more information, check out our page on Contacts
