The management of education in the 21st century has gradually moved from the traditional manual processes and procedures to the use of automated systems that supports robust relational databases, digital archives, analytics and reporting systems that can enable government and relevant stakeholders make prompt and accurate decisions.
- Most of the administrative activities carried out by education administrators can be more effective if these activities are digitisedfor easy access and cost optimisation.
- It is on the heels of the foregoing that a State-Wide Education Management Information System (SwEMiS) was developed to make for easy management of the education system.
- SwEMiSis an information management system that enables State Ministries of Education and other relevant stakeholders find a onestop-shop for all relevant administrative activities as it relates to schools (both private and public) in all LGAs of the State. It caters for registration of private schools, enrolment of pupils and students in both private and public schools, manages processes and procedures for registering a new school, renewal of existing registration and even proffer a change on the existing registration etc.
