1.  Promotion of proper implementation of New Lower Secondary Curriculum through the use of ICT tools project

Dotsaidia introduced a basic usage plan aiming at ensuring that schools can properly and efficiently implement the new lower secondary curriculum using the dotShule system. 

dotShule is certified by NCDC to support the implementation of the new lower secondary curriculum using ICT tools.

This project aims at ensuring that each school regardless of its financial status gets the opportunity of managing the curriculum with the right school information management system at a relatively low cost.

The school only needs UShs. 250,000 to get connected to the system, undergo online training of staff members, and user support for one year, that is, the whole of the 2023 academic year. For the subsequent academic years, a school under this project shall sustain the programme by paying UShs. 1,500,000 per year.

Note: This model of pricing is only applicable to schools that join dotShule under this promotion campaign. Click here to find out how schools that are on other plans are charged. 

To be a project beneficiary under the basic plan, the school has to send to the company a consent letter via email to projects@dotsaidia.co.ug The consent letter should be written on school letterhead with telephone contacts of the headteacher, bursar, director of studies and two teachers that will be in charge of managing the system at the school.

2. dotShule - NIISP project

Dotsaidia Systems Ltd partnered with the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance (MoICT&NG) to support dotShule joining schools as a way of promoting practical usage of ICT in education.

 

Under the National Initiatives ICT Support Programme (NIISP), Dotsaidia secured a grant to support dotShule subscribing schools for a period of one year and eventually the school is expected to sustain the program based on its user experience judgement. This offer is given to a selected number of schools that are keen to improve on their management. 

MoICT&NG assigned Makerere University and Resilience Africa Network to supervise Dotsaidia as the company executes all the activities in the project implementation process to ensure the system meets the needs of the school and all the stakeholders.

The project is conducted in the following ways to ensure fairness.

  • Schools covered by the grant

    • Primary and secondary schools​

    • Government and private schools

  • School selection criteria 

    • Request for support by individual school - A school independently expresses interest by replying to the request for participation letter.​

    • District Education Officer (DEO) vote - The DEO is allowed to select (3) three schools of his/her choice from his/her district to benefit from the project.

    • Religious denomination vote - Religious institutions are given a vote to select fifty (50) schools from among schools of their respective religious foundations.

  • Cost of services to the school

    • ​The grant covers the service costs for the school for three terms (one academic year).​​

    • After the school grant period, the school sustains the dotShule services by paying subscription (ground) fees of UShs. 1,500,000 per year. This model of pricing is only applicable to schools that are under the NIISP support programme. Click here to find out how schools that are not under the support programme are charged. 

A school is only considered a project beneficiary after submitting a consent letter. The deadline for receiving consent letters for the second call is 20th February 2022.
