Student Information System Project Site
The purpose of this document is to provide information to District decision makers regarding the need for a project to select and implement a system to replace the Leon County School’s Student Information System (SIS). The executive summary provides historical information on SIS, describes why a replacement is needed, and defines the high-level need, objectives and scope for a possible replacement project. The sections following the executive summary outline proposed project governance, project management strategies and controls that LCS can use in the course of a phased selection and replacement project.
