A Management and Information System for the Dine Teacher Corps Program "78".
Wilson, Roger; Salas, Dennis
The overall objective of the Dine Teacher Corps Project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of an interdisciplinary approach to the development and implementation of a bilingual/multicultural training and inservice training program for educators who will be cognizant of and responsive to the unique educational needs of the Indian child. The five year project, begun in 1978, is designed as a cooperative program between Northern Arizona University, Dine Teacher Corps, and two Bureau of Indian Affairs Navajo boarding schools (Kaibeto and Leupp). In order to perform the three phases of activities required by the project (planning, training programs, demonstration and dissemination), a Management Information System (MIS) has been developed and implemented to provide adequate, accurate, and timely information for decision making, reporting accomplishment, and using resources effectively. The MIS is an integrated information system comprised of seven subsystems: finance, school communities, management, facilities and equipment, personnel, students, and instructional programs. Diagrams, flow charts, models, and tables illustrate details of the MIS program design. (NEC/BR)
