SchoolsBox is a suite of software solution that allows schools to inform on required academic and non-academic details. It is a solution designed after a careful observation of the academic system in Nigeria and because it is indigenous, it addresses core Nigerian issues, like our system of education, lack of internet connection. The whole suite can be used offline and also our ability to adapt it to suite any changing government policy.
Features and Benefits
Staying Informed - SchoolsBox allows all educational stakeholders to have a stay informed with the school system. There are five essential components that are core to school system;
- Parents : The parents provide the children that come to these schools and also they play the role of educating the student in ďhome trainingĒ as well as assisting the teacher to make sure what is taught in school does not go away unlearnt.
- Teachers: The pupil spends a larger part of the day with the teacher in school; they educate the children in Academic and Non-Academic activities. They are the major driving force in informing the academic process.
- Educational regulatory bodies (Government Educational Ministries): These bodies are set up to guide the educational industry but they donít have real-time access to the working details in our schools.
- The student: this is the major beneficiary of the educational process. It is for the studentís benefit that the entire components above are put in place and without the student there is no education or educational system.
