Antonine Sisters School Ghazir Implements Skoolee Tools

Mar 5, 2009 (Al-Bawaba via COMTEX) -- Antonine Sisters School in Ghazir, Lebanon has implemented Skoolee Tools School Management and Student Information Software. Sister Dominique, Principal, selected Skoolee Tools with a long-term view to elevate education and school administration. The decision furthers ASG's mission of "innovative education".

Founded in 1981, Antonine Sisters School offers over 2300 students a trilingual Arabic-French-English curriculum, culminating in the Lebanese Baccalaureate. The school is located five kilometers from Jounieh.

"We took one year to prepare for Skoolee," says Amal Tannous, Program Director. "It was our opportunity to reorganize how we work, to become innovative as we could as a school administration. So we clarified our business processes and restructured our Computer Department as first steps before installing Skoolee Tools." Skoolee Tools, developed by White Mountain Technologies, uses a systematic and personalized approach to implement the software. It first aligns with schools' specific education rules and uses actual data to populate the system. This allows schools to standardize daily activities, making them quicker and more accurate in real time.

Before delivery, the Skoolee team checks data for accuracy, ensuring the software is ready to use when installation is complete. Implementation can take as little one work week.

Skoolee administrators (usually I.T. managers), administrators, teachers and staff then receive customized training, interactive sessions with easy-to-use manuals, on all Skoolee Tools features.

Ghassan Abboud, Managing Director of White Mountain Technologies, explains, "Technology fundamentally helps administrators organize how they want their schools to operate. With Skoolee Tools, they can choose accountability, transparency and communication with all members of the school community."
