Abstract

Information Technology has important benefits for the administration and management of educational institutions. Important aspects of School Information System (SIS) planning and implementation are the approaches used for analyzing the school from an information processing perspective, the implementation process itself, and the degree to which the SIS matches essential school organizational characteristics. In this paper each aspect is elaborated and the importance of its relation to the use and effects of SISs for developing countries is explained.
