The Supreme Education Council (SEC) has simplified the student admission procedure in Independent schools by linking their registration database to a common network. This new system, introduced by the SEC’s IT department, will help ease the registration process and avoid duplication, as parents will now have to enroll their children in only one school. The IT department held a meeting with school administrators and principals in the presence of the Minister of Education and Higher Education and Secretary General of the SEC, H E Saad bin Ibrahim Al Mahmoud, before introducing the new system. The SEC’s IT department will provide logistics and technical support to schools to facilitate the process. Ismail Al Mansouri, director of the IT Department, said the system was developed to prevent multiple enrollment and increase the availability of seats in the schools. Sabah Al Haidoos, director of the Education Institute; Adel Al Sayed, director of the Evaluation Institute; and Dr Nawal Al Sheikh, director of the Office of Communications, attended the meeting. The Office of Communications will coordinate with the Education Institute to help parents get more information about the new system.
