Improving Student Learning: A Strategic Planning Framework for an Integrated Student Information System in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools
Ngoma, Sylvester
Online Submission
There is growing recognition that an electronic Student Information System (SIS) affects student learning. Given the strategic importance of SIS in supporting school administration and enhancing student performance, school districts are increasingly interested in acquiring the most effective and efficient Student Information Systems for their schools. Over the years, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), a school district in North Carolina, has adopted a number of disjointed SISs with limited results. Adopting a successful SIS that has direct and positive effects on standardized test results, grade point averages, and authentic assessments requires a sound strategic plan. This paper provides a critical overview of SISs currently used in CMS and outlines a strategic planning framework that can guide the selection, adoption, and deployment of an effective and cost-efficient SIS capable of improving student learning throughout Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The framework combines existing SISs--NCWISE, EasyIEP, and T-Sparta--into one consolidated and integrated Student Information System. Appended are CIO's responses. (Contains 5 figures and 1 table.)
