PESC is proud to have, among its members, leaders and innovators in electronic data exchange for the education community. As the value of and need for high school and college transcript data increases, so too do the enhancements and functionalities made available by the leading transcript exchange providers. While pockets of progression have succeeded over the years, all stakeholders are now agreeing on common processes and common standards. The proven end result will include improved data quality, reduced costs, simplified access and overall easier, streamlined processes for students, parents, and administrators - the ultimate beneficiaries of innovation.

PESC supports a number of activities related to high school and college transcripts. While PESC's Education Record User Group (ERUG) governs all maintenance and development of high school and college PESC Approved Standards (including EDI, PDF, & XML), PESC's Common Data Services (CDS) Task Force is addressing the need for transfer of all educational data types, starting with transcripts, through an open web services network and associated standards, the Canadian PESC User Group is gathering support for a Canadian Exchange Network.
