A tablet-based School Information System (SIS) was introduced to all programme schools in late 2016. It provides more timely and accurate data and supports performance management at all levels, from school upwards.
This is a highly innovative recent development which has seen a tablet-based school data management system introduced. The system can capture real-time daily data and upload to central servers. This enables it to be used by school level actors for school management and quality improvement; and government actors for more accurate planning and resource allocation. The system is at an early stage of development with potential for national scale up and high Government commitment to its roll-out from PO-RALG.
