Mobile School Report Card
MPA entered into partnership with the Ghana Education Service (GES) to scale up the mobile School Report Card (mSRC) to cover all basic schools in the country. The mSRC provides a digitized end-to-end process for collecting real time data concerning pupils, teachers, resources and overall management at the school level. It aims to help generate reliable, quick and up-to-date data on key educational indicators at individual school levels for better planning and decision making. This is to help improve the teaching and learning process in the Basic Schools in Ghana.
As part of the partnership, MPA will assist the GES to map all basic schools in Ghana so that schools under trees as well as those with poor infrastructure will be identified and prioritized. This will enable the GES to know at the click of a button, location of all these schools and to strategize on how to assist each with a modernized school infrastructure.
MPA and GES are also collaborating to develop the Mobile Handheld and ICT Policy framework for the mSRC. The policy guideline is primarily to enable the GES address operational challenges regarding the ownership, usage, security of data, maintenance, loss, damage, disposal and monitoring of MHDs to improve education at all levels.
