Schools should review resources within each vendor's support system linked above. If there is an issue that is not easily resolvable after reviewing resources on the vendor's system support page, schools are encouraged to submit a ticket through the vendor's support system page.  Issues particularly related to state reporting system setup as well as requests for support in system customization may be directed at CSI's SIS Support contacts, Tami (PowerSchool) or Mina (Infinite Campus).
