Welcome to the Eastern Cape Department of Education's EMIS Website. Please use the menu on the top to navigate through the website.
The Education Management Information System (EMIS) is responsible for the collection, capturing and warehousing of education data in each province. The EMIS collects data from various sectors within education such as Ordinary Schools, Adult Education and Training, Inclusive Education, Early Childhood Development and Further Education and Training institutions.
A Snap survey is conducted early in the year to collect learner and educator information. Later in the year more detailed Annual Surveys are conducted to collect data at various levels of disaggregation such as gender, age, grade and population group.
These SNAP and ANNUAL Surveys have now been replaced by Monthly SASAMS Lurits Deployment submissions.
SASAMS - South African Schools Administration and Management System is now compulsory in the Eastern Cape. (View EMIS Correspondence for Circulars relating to SASAMS)
****The 2017 EMIS Intergrated Utility Tool is for ECD schools. However in the Eastern Cape our ECD schools are not on SASAMS. We in the Eastern Cape are not doing surveys, but will use your normal Monthly submissions to extract the relevant data. Should you as schools wish to download and install this utility tool to check your data, feel free to do so, but we at EMIS do not want this data. The tool is available on Thutong.
****Currently SA-SAMS experiences network problems. This version is designed to fix and upgrade
This version needs to be tested on a network . This version corrects the locking, especially when capturing absentees. It will be appreciated that you contact me (
) if you would like to test this version and send me the results by Monday by 12;00.
Reminder to test on a COPY of your database since after testing the database will NOT be usable on the new patch.
