This chapter argues that traditional school administration systems should change and adopt more sophisticated electronic school administration systems. The past decade has seen several attempts to develop such systems. Some of these systems have found their way to the marketplace. However, these systems need to be scientifically studied and critically evaluated to improve their role in the education process. We present a survey of the widely available systems and describe their features and limitations. Our own e-School Administration System is also discussed. The main goal of our system is to bridge the gap between home and school. It comprises several modules such as a messaging center to overcome communication barriers; course system to adapt students’ learning styles; tools to handle notes, tutorials, assignments and quizzes; personal organizers to help users maximize their time planning; and a performance assessment system to help keep track of students’ grades. The implementation and evaluation of our system is presented and discussed, and some enhancements are proposed at the end of this chapter.
