Coimbatore, Nov 11: The Standing Committee on Education of the Coimbatore Corporation Council has resolved to go in for computerisation and use of exclusive software for administration of Corporation schools. The committee under chairmanship of R. Kalyanasundaram and its members V.K.S.K.Senthil Kumar, Tamilselvi, Shobana Selvan and Meena Loganathan held a meeting recently to discuss modernisation of all Corporation schools for efficient management and to improve its standards.

The details of drop-out students, regular reports of the schools to Education Department and Corporation, infrastructure requirements, details of all movable and non-movable assets of schools, routine maintenance reports, are its key features.
The data about the school staff, including their service records, attendance, payroll and provident fund accounts are added advantage of this proposed software for the teaching and non-teaching staff of the Coimbatore Corporation. This will solve the long pending problems faced by the staff in terms of manual accounts related to provident fund and during the time of retirement etc. The reports in detail about the free supply of uniform dresses, text books, note books and cycles by Government are made mandatory in this new system.
The inventory and utilisation reports of noon-meal scheme food and free eggs will take place in this package.

E-Governance in the Corporation School sector will have enormous improvement in terms of academic standards, student strength and effective staff contribution in teaching above all the quick decision making by the management of these schools.
