The Programme Monitoring & Implementation Unit, Punjab Education Sector Reform Programme, Government of the Punjab has issued the official Notification letter on 25th October, 2021 in connection with Annual School Census 2021-22 through School Information System (SIS).
Traditionally, PMIU conducts Annual School Census on October 31st every year through printed forms but in Annual School Census 2018-19 it was conducted through School Information System (SIS) As School Information System (SIS) has matured and almost all schools have entered most of their data, it has been suggested again to continue collection of digitized data through SIS.
Although the SIS data is in real-time and can be collected anytime through the web portal, yet in order to obtain a complete picture of the sector at a given/cut-off date, a data completion/updating activity on SIS may be conducted simultaneously across the province.
