Frequently Asked Questions

Listed below are some commonly asked questions about the School Bytes platform.

How do we obtain school student data?
When a school joins the School Bytes platform, student and staff data is securely transferred to the School Bytes cloud infrastructure through the NSW Department of Education's Third Party Integration (3PI) framework.

Before doing so, the principal or deputy principal of the school authorises access to such data.
