South African - School Administration and
SA-SAMS is a robust computer application specifically designed to meet the management, administrative and governance needs of Public Schools in South Africa. The program has a strong EMIS focus to assist schools in the completion of the Annual School Survey and to allow deployment of the Database for LURITS.
Why was SA-SAMS developed? Many schools were using different management applications for different school functions e.g. schools were using a financial package to control the school finances, a separate timetabling package to do timetables and class lists were being manually generated. This resulted in the same data being input into two or more, separate systems and all these systems needed to be updated every time a change occurred. SA-SAMS was therefore developed to provide schools with a free, easy to use and fully integrated computer solution containing all aspects of school management requirements. It also incorporates a Timetabling Assistant to assist the schools with the complicated task of allocating educators to subjects to classes and packing the timetable.
