Council of the Great City Schools, Washington, DC.
This document examines the design and structure of PMIS (Planning and Management Information System), an information system that supports the decisionmaking process of executive management in local school districts. The system is designed around a comprehensive, longitudinal, and interrelated data base. It utilizes a powerful real-time, interactive data management system for strategic planning; evaluation studies; and local, State, and federal reporting. Following an introduction to PMIS in chapter one, the next four chapters examine the various components of the system. System components discussed are (1) the overall structure of the data base, its size, and its significance; the components of the support and information systems; and the operation of a PMIS system, the computer requirements, and first year system costs. The final chapter of the document discusses the future of PMIS activities. A related document is ED 063 647. (Author/DN)
