Abstract

This study investigates the effect of a school management information system on the loosely coupled nature of the instruction-administration subsystem in a high school. The study identifies a chain reaction of hierarchically oriented tightening in six major categories: accountability, instruction evaluation, supervision, feedback, frequency of meetings, and shared decision making. All horizontal-type interrelations (i.e., between people in the same functions) remained unchanged with the exception of significantly tighter interrelations in five out of six categories among teachers teaching the same subject.
