An Information System for a District School Administrator. Operation PEP/Executive Information Systems.
Lewis, S. G.
This report begins with an educational administrator's view of an information system (i.e., data processing applications) and his strategy for system improvement. The document then moves to a broadly defined view of a district's information system in terms of information system dimensions and the problems normally addressed by a system improvement program. Finally, an illustration of a structured reporting system offers a more meaningful view of what the information system can do to improve the administration of the district. Funds for this research were provided by an ESEA Title III grant. (Author/RA)
