Abstract

Considering the rapidly growing world population and increased enrolment in full course primary school education around the world, this paper elucidates key means of leveraging Information Technology for the effective and efficient management of the increasing pressure associated with schools' administrative functions and students' basic activities. Primarily narrowing down to the basic African education framework, this paper sheds more light on the methods which can be adopted for the development of such processes through improved Information Technology platforms. In doing this, the design and implementation of the Jasper School Management System (a school management solution developed by the author) will be used as a case study. Also, a brief highlight of the impact this Information Technology initiative will have on institutions where it is deployed. The Jasper School Management Software being referenced was built using Java Programming Language in conjunction with MySQL. It was produced to help improve management activities of schools especially in developing countries of the world, with 8 major school management modules incorporated into it. Also, the software is open-source i.e., open to adaptations, improvements and free to download.
