What is LISS

LISS = Lightweight Interoperability Standard for Schools.

LISS is an interoperability standard designed for K-12 schools, to connect Timetable applications and other applications to Student Information Systems / School Admin Systems. It is a web-based protocol based on JSON, (or XmlRpc, although XmlRpc is discouraged). The goal is that the combined system should act semantically as if it was a single system i.e. with changes propagated in near-real time, even if there are different look and feels in use. More information can be found at https://liss.org.au/docs/about

To see if your timetabling and student management system supports LISS view the supporting parties section on the LISS homepage: https://liss.org.au/.


Only Junipa users with sufficient privileges will have access to LISS settings within Junipa. Make sure Junipa has a term set up with the correct Term dates. This is an important prerequisite prior to importing from LISS.
