A dynamic web-based information system was developed, tested and evaluated at Jurong Primary School in Singapore from August to December 2001. The various questionnaires for the stakeholders prepared by the school staff and the author were successfully administered through the system. The system supports a consultative style of decision-making that enables the stakeholders to contribute their views. The server can compile the responses, and then present the results to all. Hence, the school leaders can make timely and informed decisions that improve the school's programmes. In addition, the system facilitates communication between the school and the home, and encourages collaboration. Finally, it supports the teachers in analysing the students, and performs both formative and summative evaluation of lessons or other academic programmes. This paper provides an insight as to how such a system supports curricular and noncurricular decision-making incorporating the stakeholders' involvement.
