WHAT IS WVEIS?
WVEIS (West Virginia Education Information System) is a management information system (MIS) for West Virginia schools and county school systems. The project is legislatively mandated and is used to manage the daily operations of schools and school systems across the state.
Program applications for student management include enrollment of students, scheduling courses, taking attendance, recording grades, recording discipline incidences, keeping track of immunizations and other health related matters, recording special education services provided to children, plus many more daily activities. Applications for administration include writing purchase orders and making payments for goods and services received, writing payroll checks for about 50,000 full and part time employees twice a month, maintaining records of deduction and leave accrual, keeping track of warehoused products, recording of fixed assets, and tracking work positions (human resources).
