Information Systems provides support to the Allegany County School System as well as the County Government with regards to all financials (G/L, Accounts Payable and Receivable, Payroll, Property Taxes, Utilities, and Fixed Assets), Human Resources and Personnel Information, and Pupil Services which include student scheduling, student records (grades and grade history, including graduate records), attendance, special education, food service, and suspension information. Student service information is provided not only to central administration but to individual school systems and the Maryland Department of Education on a regular basis (daily, monthly and yearly reporting.) All work is processed on an IBM AS/400 - I5 system in the data center at the Board of Education. Programming in RPG and web applications provides for data gathering, inquiry and reporting. Financials utilize JD Edwards World and New World software applications.
