Welcome to the SIS Modernization Page!
Here you will find all the documents, material, and updates related to the upgrade of our Student Information System (SIS), known as DEC. SIS is a vital tool in delivering student services while at the same time supporting teaching and learning. It is the most important technological tool that supports the LACCD educational mission.
The SIS Modernization project is scheduled to be completed by Fall of 2016. Oracle's PeopleSoft Campus Solutions has been chosen as the software solution to replace the existing DEC system. We have also hired Ciber Inc. as the implementation vendor who will guide and aid us through the installation and configuration process. We look forward to the many challenges ahead and welcome everyone to participate in this exciting journey.
Message from our Project Sponsors: Ms. Bobbi Kimble and Mr. Jorge Mata
The Student Information System (SIS) Modernization Project is a joint effort managed by both the Educational Programs and Institutional Effectiveness Division and the Information Technology Division. The SIS project will transform the way the District delivers services to our students by providing easy-to-use functionality to students, faculty and staff from anywhere on the globe at any hour of the day while leveraging our faculty and staff in the areas where they truly add great value through human interaction.
The LACCD Board of Trustees recognizes that a more modern, robust student information system will grant the District the opportunity to significantly improve support services access and access to data and general information for students, faculty and staff. The new system will also ease routine tasks, minimize the need for paper, and streamline and improve the District's ability to conduct state, federal and grant reporting.
The District Educational Services Center (District Office) and sponsors are dedicated to providing the resources needed for the success of this project. Collaboration and involvement is needed from all nine colleges as well as district personnel. The SIS system is a cornerstone in LACCD's business structure and architecture. The modernization project can, by all means, be considered the most important and valuable district wide project currently being conducted.
