The Legislature finds and declares that the mission of the California School Information Services is to do all of the following:
(a) Build the capacity of local education agencies to implement and maintain comparable, effective, and efficient pupil information systems that will support their daily program needs, assist local education agencies in improving the outcomes of pupils, and promote the use of information for educational decisionmaking by schoolsite, district office, and county staff.
(b) Enable the accurate and timely exchange of pupil transcripts between local education agencies and to postsecondary institutions.
(c) Assist local education agencies to transmit state and federal reports electronically to the State Department of Education, thereby reducing the reporting burden of local education agency staff.
