**Note: The current integrations with Clever are only available to customers subscribed to Campus or District plans**
Does your school district use Clever? If so, you’re likely wondering if AES can integrate or pair with it.
Currently, we offer two options for integrating AES with your Clever system:
- Single Sign-On
In this article, we’ll explain what each integration option is, how it works, and who can use it.
1. The Single Sign-On Integration Between AES and Clever
You probably hear complaints from your students about forgotten passwords on a weekly (if not daily) basis. With a Single Sign-On integration, your students can save time and save you the hassle of dealing with forgotten passwords.
What Is the Single Sign-On Integration?
Single Sign-On (SSO) allows teachers and students to use their Clever accounts to access the AES system.
This works by taking your initial login to Clever, encrypting it for security, and then using the token to access the AES system without the need for a separate username and password.
An SSO integration makes it easier for you and your students because there is one less password to remember, resulting in fewer login issues.
Who Can Use the SSO Integration?
The Clever Single Sign-On integration is available to customers subscribed to a Campus or District plan.
How Do I Set Up the Clever SSO Integration?
Your district’s Clever Administrator must request access to use the SSO integration with AES.
After the integration is enabled, you and your students will be able to access AES from your Clever Launchpad.

2. The Rostering Integration Between AES and Clever
Administrators we work with are always looking for ways to help their teachers save time and give their students a more seamless experience with digital tools. If that’s important to you, a rostering integration for Clever may be a good fit.
What Is the Rostering Integration?
With a rostering integration, teachers can easily import class rosters from their district’s system into the AES system.
Districts that use rostering don’t need to worry about enrolling individual students into the correct AES class periods.
After your roster has been imported, students can access their AES classes by using the Clever Launchpad.
At any point during the year a student’s schedule changes in your school’s student information management system, the Clever rostering integration will update the AES system to reflect the change.
Who Can Use the Rostering Integration?
Rostering through Clever is available for an additional fee to customers subscribed to a Campus or District plan.
How Do I Set Up the Clever Rostering Integration?
The process to set up rostering between Clever and AES will require your district’s IT administrator to work with the AES software team.
This will require both parties to work together to configure the Clever connection appropriately for your district.
As part of this setup, your district will also need to enable the Clever SSO integration.
If you think rostering could be a good solution for your district, contact your AES account manager.
Your account manager will help you determine whether rostering would be the right fit for your needs and discuss the next steps if you’d like to move forward.
Which Clever Integration Option Is Best for You?
The options for integrating AES with Clever serve different purposes and are available to different subscription plans.
