The District of West Africa adopted a new management system for community and school leaders

A workshop on a new Management Software for the Marist activities, was on 6th January 2021 organized for Principals, Community Superiors and Bursars in the Marist District of the West Africa. This workshop is one of several strategies adopted by the Marist District towards becoming a Province. The program which brought together twelve brothers from Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Chad and Cameroon was held via Skype.

In his opening remarks Br Cyprian Gandeebo, the District Superior, asked the participants to show interest and own the software for effective leadership and accountability in the communities and works. He was optimistic that the software will encourage more communication among leaders of Marist works and communities which had hitherto been a challenge in the District.

The program which is in its implementation stage has two components: The U-school and V-track. The U-school is an integrated application software that handles student’s information including academics, Students report cards, fees payment, receipting, pay roll management, other school management protocols. The V-Track, on the other hand, is an Assets management software for our schools and communities. It takes the inventory of all assets and property of the District of West Africa. It further contains a balance sheet management system. The new management system is meant to replace the current management and reporting system with its attendant challenges.
