The EMIS is an integrated information system for the collection, integration, processing and dissemination of data and information to support decision-making, policy analysis and formulation, planning, monitoring, and management at all levels of an education system. This system will revolutionize the operations of the education system by allowing Officers to access real-time information about each school in the system.

Additionally, the distribution of devices to support the implementation of the EMIS Core has also begun and will continue throughout the month. The training is intended for all regions as the system has both online and offline capabilities.
