How It Works

This section will walk you through how MySchool-UG works and how it meets its objectives in all the aspects that it deals with.

A School Account Admin (Administrator) is the person preferably a Head teacher under whose name the school is registered. He/ She will be responsible for making any critical changes to the school’s account details or anything related to the school on the system.
After an account has been created for you, you can access the ‘LOGIN’ area and click ‘School Account Admin’ and in the popup fill in the email address used at account creation without a password. Click Submit to login as a School Account Admin, and please change your password as soon as you log in.


  • While at the ‘Administrator Home’ page, you can register a new school in case your account has just been created by filling in the details about the school and submitting.

  • If you already have a school registered, you can also manage the school’s account by updating information about the school or even delete the school from the system.

  • By clicking on the school’s name or Centre Number, the system will take you to the school's home page.

  • You will then be prompted to fill in details about the current term such that MySchool-UG can start a session for the school for the current term.

  • Once a session has been successfully started, you will be redirected to the school account’s home page which has a summary of details about the school.

  • At the home page, on the navigation bar click ‘FEATURES’, then ‘Administrative’, then ‘School Setup’ to continue customizing the system to meet and reflect the structure of  your school.

 

  • You shall then be redirected to the ‘Set up your system’ page.
  • Click ‘Administrative Structure’ in the side navigation bar to go the school’s administrative structure where you shall register at least one administrative user such as a Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher and more.

 

  • After you have added an administrative user, you can choose to either logout and let the user you have created proceed with school set up or proceed with the set up process.

Note: Only Head Teachers or Deputies have access to everything on the school’s account.

  • All users that you have registered on the system can now login as System Users using the User ID that is automatically assigned to them by the system while registering them.

School setup Process

The major aim of this setup process is to ensure that you have the best experience of using MySchool-UG by making sure that the system is customized to be a proper reflection of your schools structure.
On the navigation bar click ‘FEATURES’, then ‘Administrative’, then ‘School Setup’ to start the set up process.

MySchool-UG’s goal is to make bursars much more effective by helping them manage all their fees payments.
With reference to the financial structure that you provided during set up, MySchool-UG automatically keeps track of all fees payments that you register on to the system.
To access the Finance Section, click ‘FEATURES’, then Finances.

Once at the Financial Reports page, you can;

  • ‘Enter New Fees Payments’

MySchool-UG gives bursars provision here to enter payment details on students’ bank slips into the system.
The system uses the entered details to automatically keep track of students’ payments, and monitor fees balances, including carrying forward balances from the previous term.

  • Print Demand Notices

If a bursar chooses to print demand notices, the system automatically generates a list of defaulting students for each class and automatically creates demand notices for all of them indicated their balance as at the date of printing.

Discipline

For any school, discipline is a key component of every student. As such MySchool-UG offers you a fast and easy way of monitoring a student’s behavior at school.
Cases of indiscipline can be registered by any staff member, and are accessible by the student’s parent. Thus a parent would be well aware of their children’s conduct at school.
