The Kentucky Tech System (KTS) data exchange is a secure transfer of student enrollments between the student's high school and technical center. The data exchange streamlines processes, eliminates the need for email and paper reports, and minimizes dual data entry.
Participating technical schools can fully utilize both KSIS and the Continuous Instructional Improvement Technical System (CIITS) in their classrooms.
Home high schools can run real-time attendance reports that reflect attendance entered by the technical school into KSIS. There is also an optional attendance sync feature available for high schools that allows previous day unknown attendance to sync from the technical school back to the high school nightly. Additionally, the nightly data exchange process posts students’ technical school grades to the appropriate high schools, allowing for athletic eligibility determinations, and posting of both high school and tech school grades on student report cards and transcripts.
