For years, the Department of Education has been called upon to collect more and more data from schools. In 1995 the Department began developing a state-of-the-art comprehensive information management system. When completed, it will replace over 250,000 pieces of paper used each year to collect data from schools with a web-based system of smart forms which will enable districts to directly enter, edit, retrieve, and transfer data with the Department through any common web browser. In addition, the DOE IMS will provide the information infrastructure for the Education Reform Act by tracking individual student data on each of the close to one million public schools students.
