Abstract: The research focused on the challenges of developing computerized information systems in schools. The research study involved visiting Oxford Moslem School Oxford Moslem School uses manual file based system for managing data, they face problems like data redundancy and inconsistency where by some information are duplicated in several files. The file based system does not allow required data to be retrieved in a convenient and efficient manner thus difficult in accessing data. The objectives therefore include; Investigate and analyze the present system so as to identify inefficiencies into the current system of data management at the School; Design, model and develop a computerized system for the School; Develop, implement, Test and validate the system ofrecord keeping in the school. The methods that were used to come up with the system included; for data collection, self administered questionnaire, observation, document review and interview. For designing the database, Microsofi access was used and for the interface design, visual basic interface programming Finally the implementation and the operation of the system was designed to accept only those who are the privileged members to access the date base from the visual interface using passwords and Usernames granted by an administrator are used to again access to the database. The research findings, the study were established causes of record keeping which is manual system of data entry, update and storage of data which is riddled with problems like poor storage, consumption of time during data entry, loss of records, forgery. And many more. the new system is computerized from entry of data processing, to generating of reports. The system reduces on the amount of work done when entering data. The system has speed, validation routines and is reliable. It is secure through a password. however they are faced by the challenges of poverty illiteracy ignorance among others which have hindered development of computerized information system in the school.
