When we have all data online it will be great for humanity. It is a prerequisite to solving many problems that humankind faces- Robert Cailliau.
In today’s modern world, data plays an important role in one’s life. Data is considered to be the new currency. Data can be converted to information, which in-turn leads to knowledge. And this knowledge will be beneficial for human race. If you consider any business, “DATA” will be a key player in decision making. Even education system is not excluded from this. Whether it’s a school, college or a university, it has ample amount of data like student details, admission details, fee details etc. This high volume of data, throws challenges to the people who are involved its administration. Let’s see a few of them below:
Robert works as an admin at Vidya School.
His job involves interacting with parents who approach the school for the first time. He helps in student admission process by filling up and maintaining the student admission form manually. All the other follow up activities will be done manually. Apart from this task, Robert also takes care of fee collection activity. Management asks Robert to report the fee collection details and student admission details at a higher level; tiny details are not required for them. Robert has to manually create a separate report for the management based on their requirement. With all these manual activities, he is very stressed and his productivity has gone down.
Sam and Mary are parents of Bill
who is studying in 4th standard of Vidya School. Sam is always busy on business tours. Hence it is Mary who attends the Parents-Teacher meetings. Mary wants to know how Bill is performing in each subject. Bill’s class teacher Stella has each student’s marks. But Mary’s request was to get details about how Bill is performing comparing to class average. She would also like to know on which subjects he has to concentrate more to improve his overall score. But with the current manual systems in Vidya School, it is hard to derive such kind of information with the existing setup. At times Mary feels helpless due to lack of this information.
Sam, who is always busy traveling, feels guilty of not attending parents-Teacher meeting. He wishes somehow he could track Bill’s academic performance even when he is away from home. But with the current system in Vidya School this is not possible. Sam at times feels he has no work-life balance.
George is one of the management committee members for Vidya School. He is very keen on getting admission related information like how many students have enrolled for each class – how much fee is collected and how much is pending. And he needs this information in different fee category as well. The admin, Robert has all the data, but he is unable to provide the data in the format that George is expecting. Hence George has to spend more time in analyzing the data heap to meet his goals.
These are some of the challenges faced by the people who are involved in school management tasks. The root cause for all these problems is “performing admin tasks manually”. Once we address this, all the problems will be solved and administration of the school will become a cool breeze job. One and only way to solve this problem is to go for a “school management software”.
Let us see what school management software can do and how it helps to solve the above problems.
The school management software provides an online admission form. Parents who wish to enroll their children to the school have to fill this form and submit at their convenient time and place. This filled form will be received by the school admin via School Management Software. The school admin can then verify this admission form and then perform follow up activities like fee collection, transportation option, lunch option, uniform and books fee options via School Management Software only. The data will be updated as and when the transaction happens. This can be retrieved in multiple reports format which caters to all stakeholder’s requirements.
In School Management Software, student’s marks can also be recorded. This recorded data can be retrieved as and when required with many reporting structures. One can perform many calculations based on these data. For example one can calculate how a student is performing in a subject compared to class average. And in turn this data can be compared with standard average. With this kind of reporting, one can easily identify what is going good and where we should improve.
Also a good School Management Software should provide online access to the data for parents. This should include real time access to the data like attendance/ marks/ exam schedules etc. With this feature, parents can keep track of their kid’s progress from anywhere anytime.
Since enormous amount of data will be recorded while managing a school, the School Management Software should be able to process that data and present the same in multiple report format. The reports may have only high level data [management perspective] or they may have very detailed data [ student marks card] or generic one [ list of events/ holiday etc.].An ideal School Management Software should also support library management, transport management, inventory management, time table scheduler etc.
With a proper School Management Software, everyone involved in school will get benefited. These benefits will be in the form of money, proper time management, and proper resource management. School Management Software will help in reducing redundant work and data. With less effort one can achieve more with the help of School Management Software.
We would recommend that every educational institute should go for a good School Management Software. The time and money invested on this School Management Software will be recovered with in short time. Also by going paperless, you will be contributing to the environment. By consuming less paper, you will be saving trees.
