E-Merit is a web content management system that is developed to help Malaysian secondary schools manage discipline problems among their students more effectively in order to increase the academic performance to a greater height. Students' misconduct problems at the present level occurred due to lack of self-awareness and lack of parental control. The uniqueness of this application as compared with other E-Discipline systems are the teachers not only can record misconduct cases among their students but they will be given opportunity for improving themselves through counseling and community service programs. In addition, parents can check their children records of academic achievement, co-curricular, discipline and presence in the school for taking a preventive action before being suspended. Notification via e-mail and Short Messaging System will be automatically received when their children are involved in any activity of wrongdoings. Merit stated here not merely the measurement of student disciplinary cases but also their level of academic achievements and co-curricular activities either they are excellent, good, satisfactory or fail. This application is designed using Open Source Software that provides three categories of user access namely teacher, student and parent in which only the teacher is fully entitled to make any additions and changes to student's records. The benefits of the system are included its ability to increase the efficiency of managing students' electronic records, to reduce the burden of teachers' works as well as to be a best tool in assisting the detection and prevention of discipline problems. Therefore, E-Merit is expected to be commercialized as the best platform not only among the schools but also the public and private institutions of higher learning to excel its corporate image through the development of students' intellectual capital aligned with the national philosophy of education.
