3 Introduction The First Nation Student Success Program (FNSSP) supports the development of school success planning, student learning assessments and performance measurement in individual First Nation schools. The FNSSP is an initiative that supports First Nation schools on reserve in their ongoing efforts to respond to their students’ needs and improve student and school results.

4 Database Management The Database Management component will enhance and support the collection and analysis of data on student and school performance which is critical to a school’s ability to advance and track student achievement. It allows schools to set targets and monitor results and report to parents and communities on how students are doing. Data includes the day-to-day record keeping of students, grades, results of standardized testing and other academic assessments, including attendance.

5 Objectives Streamline the school administrative tasks:
Easy to access student information Attendance Grades Academic history Demographics Discipline Contact information Health information Standard testing information

6 Objectives (Cont’d) Streamline the management and aggregate data reporting tasks: Nominal Roll Special Education Monthly attendance rates Graduation rates Drop-out rates Literacy test results Numeracy test results

7 Objectives (Cont’d) Have rule-specific access to data management modules. Have a Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) and OCAP compliant structure. Reduced requests from the Education Director’s office for student information. Maintain student confidentiality while providing access to staff members.

8 Objectives (Cont’d) Configure system to schools’ unique specifications: Teachers Scoped to Life-Long learning School information Courses Students Report cards Federal and provincial reporting Additional modules as required for facilities, busing, scheduling, etc.

9 Project Goals The goals of the project to implement a Student Information System (SIS) are: Implement a single SIS across all First Nations schools in Manitoba.
