CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Philippines — Nineteen faculty members of Xavier Ateneo Junior High School participated in the training of trainers for the implementation of the Student Lifecycle Management and Information System (SLMIS), conducted by the university’s Computing and Information Services Office (CISO) on October 18 at the XUJHS Computer Laboratory B.  

The participants were representatives from the different academic departments and offices who were tasked to train their colleagues to utilize the system for submission of quarterly grades to the Registrar’s Office. 

The JHS administration’s target is for the unit to run the new online system parallel with its present system starting this school year. 

CISO’s Joseph Anthony Sabal and Jo Ramil Palabao facilitated the said workshop and provided training tools and manuals. 

Since the start of this school year, CISO has worked closely with the JHS Registrar’s Office in preparing the unit for its transition to the SLMIS.

“As the SLMIS automates the system of grade submission, it reduces the risk of errors from the manual encoding of grades from the grading sheets in the traditional system and it has a feature to keep track of INC grades,” said XUJHS assistant principal academics Lea Lilibeth Emata. 

The system also allows faster and more convenient submission of grades online from any place, even while being in another city or country.

“Consequently, faster submission and printing of grades allow us to have timely feedback to students. Lastly, this centralized record of grades from the grade school to college allows the parents to keep track of the child’s progress and review records as well,” Emata added. 

All XUJHS SLMIS champions successfully facilitated their echo training with their respective departments on October 19 and 20.

“Our unit will definitely benefit from maximizing the SLMIS in electronically storing our students’ grades and pertinent data as well as generating reports, such as enrolment lists, quarterly summary of grades, a new report card, quarterly honor’s lists, and DepEd reports,” said XUJHS registrar Conchita Q Almeñana.∎
