An Information System for Educational Management: Vol. 4, Functional Design.
Functional description of the information system proposed for the Los Angeles Unified School District, with specification of input and output data, file formats, and necessary processing. For descriptive purposes, the information system can be divided into five subsystems. The personnel information subsystem provides data concerning certificated personnel and budget positions. The program/budget information subsystem lists educational programs, describes current and projected school budgets, and relates traditional accounting classifications to the program budgeting display. The educational results information subsystem provides data on classroom, school, and program activity. The community profile information subsystem generates socioeconomic data on the school service area and records community reactions to proposed educational programs and strategies. The inquiry subsystem allows the decisionmaker to assess all data stored in the other subsystems. (See also R-930 to R-932, R-934, R-935.) 78 pp. Ref.
