Integrated Information System Approach to New Enrollees.
Schultz, Thomas A.
The integrated information system being used by the Southfield, Michigan, school district to enroll and assess new transfer students makes use of the data processing services of the Oakland Intermediate School District. High school administrative and counseling offices have access to a student database on the district's mainframe computer via online workstations consisting of IBM 3278 terminals and IBM personal computers using terminal emulation capabilities. Registration data for new transfer students is recorded first, and then student assessment data are entered and used to place students in the appropriate instructional environment. In the case of high school students, information is sent to the high school counseling office through the information network, and the students' scheduling information is also entered in the system. Teachers are informed of new enrollees, and information about new students is also sent to the district's transportation office to arrange for bus assignments. A pilot program is also being planned to include private school children in the system so that their transportation needs can be handled electronically as well. (EW)
