Let our team synchronize G Suite Users and Google Classroom classes, rosters, and guardians for you…
For schools with Amplified Labs’ Managed Sync for G Suite, our team creates all G Suite student user accounts, as well as Google Classroom classes, rosters, and guardian-invitations, and synchronizes them daily from your student information system data.
What problems does Managed Sync for G Suite solve?
Manually keeping up with student account creation, Classroom roster maintenance, and guardian invitations in G Suite can be a repetitive and time-consuming process for tech staff and teachers.
Beyond the cost in time, lags and mistakes in account provisioning and rostering are where a school’s highest-needs students can fall through the cracks and get left hanging without access to the learning tools they need.
Finally, when they can’t rely on all of their students having access to their school G Suite accounts or Google Classroom, or when the burdens of setup and maintenance create barriers to adoption, teachers miss an opportunity to try on the rich teaching strategies that are made possible through Google’s collaboration and authoring tools.

|How often is a teacher in your school unable to use Google Classroom with all students because not all accounts are set up or enrolled in the class?||“fairly common” to “quite common”||Significant lost student learning|
|Roughly how many new students transfer into / out of your school over the course of the year?||40 students||Significant lost student learning|
|Roughly how many new students transfer into or out of a typical class section in your school over the course of a single semester?||8 students||Significant lost student learning|
How does it work?
Using the Clever API (at no additional direct cost to schools), our Premium G Suite Sync service automatically pulls all the necessary student roster information, cross-references your existing G Suite domain users and Classroom classes, and automatically performs all necessary changes on your G Suite domain.
What types of sync actions will the service perform?
- Creating new student accounts with customized, rule-based username and password
- Moving and/or suspending student accounts for students no longer on register
- Creating Google Classroom classes for all teachers
- Adding new students to Classroom rosters and notifying the teacher
- Inviting guardians to Google Classroom
- Optionally, removing unenrolled students from Classroom rosters and notifying the teacher.
- Optionally, removing guardians not found in your SIS source data.
Can our district host this service ourselves?
Managed Sync for G Suite is a hosted and managed service built on our GFE Sync and Little SIS technologies that includes Clever SIS integration. This makes it a great fit if your school doesn’t have the local resources to automate your own SIS data exports, or to set up and manage a server running sync jobs.
That said, for districts with the in-house capacity to self-host, GFE Sync and Little SIS can be purchased as standalone, self-hosted, self-managed services. For larger districts, this can be a more cost-effective way to provide the same user and Classroom sync functionality.
Will it work in NYCDOE schools?
Why yes! In fact, We built the Managed Sync service with NYC very much in mind. Clever API integration already exists for all NYCDOE schools. With a simple approval request from the school principal, you can authorize DIIT and Clever to give Amplified Labs automated access to the ATS / STARS roster data that backs the Premium Sync for G Suite service.
