Abstract

Information and Communication Technology brought a revolution in managing information especially business related information. The era has been changed from managing information manually to computerized information management. It becomes vital when accuracy, less cost and time are the constraints. Schools and learning management systems have got great importance everywhere nowadays with the hype of ICT as it facilitates with ease of management. Many developments in school management systems have been seen during last few years but managing information of schools with distributed branches in remote areas got less attention than required. In this paper, we propose a novel framework for distributed information management system termed as School Information System (SIS) for schools having branches.
