Three more school districts and the San Diego County Office
of Education (SDCOE) will begin transitioning to a new business enterprise
system July 1 as part of the Modernization,
Improvement and Transformation Initiative—better known as MITI.
The initiative will transform the way we and school
districts throughout the county do business by updating the systems used for
financial and human resources information.
By the end of 2016, nearly every school district in the
county along with several charter schools plan to move to the new MITI system,
leaving behind the outdated, costly and cumbersome system that has been in
place for three decades.
“This is a true countywide endeavor,” said Linda Visnick,
project lead for MITI.
Nine small school districts started implementing parts of
the system in January. La Mesa-Spring Valley, Lakeside Union and Coronado
Unified school districts will start using the financial component of it July 1.
In October, the three districts and SDCOE also will begin using the human
capital management portion of the system, which includes human resources,
benefits, absence management, time and labor, and payroll.
Over the last several months, hundreds of education
employees have received training on the Oracle PeopleSoft system.
