Year-Round Collections - RITS

The purpose of the Record Integration Tracking System (RITS) is to assign each student in the state of Colorado a unique student ID that will stay with the student for the life of their public school career.
There are three ways to obtain a State Assigned Student ID (SASID):

  • Add Single Student: This method allows the institution to submit a single student's information and to obtain an unique ID for the submitted student. This function is not available to users with "View-Only" access to RITS.
  • Add Multiple Students : This method allows the institution to submit a list of students via an on-line entry in order to assign each student a unique identifier. A list of IDs will be supplied back to the institution through a listing on the web site.
  • Data Pipeline File Upload: This method allows the sending institution the option of sending a large batch of student information in order to assign each student a unique ID. The sending institution is able to receive the identifiers back via a similar Data Pipeline file.
