Guide to: Implementing a new school MIS

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

This Headteacher Update Guide explains the key steps to implementing a new school management information system (MIS), including what is needed for a successful switchover, cleaning your data, what to expect from your supplier and more.

We consider why schools might consider making the switch to a new MIS, what next generation MIS can offer, and what schools should look for when choosing a new MIS.

We discuss how to ensure a smooth transition, including what to expect from your supplier, how to prepare your staff, and who is responsible for what during this process. We outline the key elements of a successful switchover, including cleaning and protecting your data.

The guide has been produced in conjunction with IRIS Education and IRIS Ed:gen, its next generation school MIS. For details, click here.
