Milange District in Mozambique scaling EMIS down to school level

Milange District in Zambezia Province has taken a transformative initiative aimed at enhancing data management and decision-making processes within the education sector.

With over 300 schools under its network, Milange District has taken the bold step of scaling down the use of EMIS to the school level. This marks a significant shift in approach, as it empowers individual schools with the tools necessary for effective data analysis and informed decision-making. By decentralizing the use of EMIS, each school gains greater autonomy and accountability in managing their data, thereby fostering a culture of ownership and responsibility. The initiative supports reducing the reporting burden on the district but also aims to elevate the quality of data collected. With accurate and reliable data easily accessible and in user-friendly formats, educators and administrators have the ability to access their data when it matters. As part of the GPE KIX project, the district will document how they are using their data for making informed decisions that directly impact teaching, learning, and resource allocation.

Furthermore, by equipping schools with the means to analyze their data, together we are fostering a culture of continuous improvement and innovation within the education system. Schools can identify trends, pinpoint areas for improvement, and tailor interventions to meet the unique needs of their students and communities.

The ripple effect of Milange District’s initiative is already being felt beyond its borders. Other districts in both Nampula and Zambezia provinces are following suit, recognizing the immense potential of decentralized data management in driving positive change within the education sector.

As we embark on this journey towards data-driven decision-making at the grassroots level, let us celebrate the vision and leadership of Milange District. #DataEmpowerment #ZambeziaProud
