Belize Education Management Information System
2016 Belize Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports
OpenEMIS Belize helps the Ministry of Education provide equitable access to a high-quality education, with data management tools that improve institutional efficiency and enhance the Ministry’s capacity to monitor progress.
The policy objectives of Belize’s Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture (MoEYSC) are to increase equitable access to all levels of education for all children; to improve the quality and relevance of education at all levels for all children (with an emphasis on those with special education needs), and to strengthen governance throughout the sector with an emphasis on student achievement. These objectives, under the motto “Better Data for Better Schools,” highlight the need for quality education data. Since it was deployed in 2014, OpenEMIS has helped the MoEYSC collect and manage relevant and timely data, to support planning that is increasingly based on evidence. Launched in 615 schools and covering 106,000 student, OpenEMIS allows principals across the country to create student and teacher profiles, organize classes, manage staff, and most recently to complete the Ministry’s annual education survey.
