Jayapura, Jubi- The Jayapura Municipality Department of Education in partnership with Telkom has installed free Wifi for 100 schools since last year.
“This is our attempt to access data through our website. Therefore, any progress of education at schools can be submitted to the Department of Education and distributed to department’s divisions,” department head Robert J Betaubun told Jubi on Monday (20/10).
Besides the data processing or IT, the Department of Education will continue to expand its website so that parents can monitor the students’ progress.
“And we encourage almost all schools to have the facility such as Wifi. Even Telkom has installed the connection in school areas to assist the school authorities in monitoring the progress of their students through our website,” he said.
Betaubun said Telkom has installed the direct connection in several areas in Jayapura Municality, such as near the SMK 5 (Vocational High School) and SMA 4 (High School).
Jayapura Mayor Benhur Tommy Mano said because of the improvement of online system in Jayapura Municipality, his administration is planning to include IT development in their working plan for 2015.
“We are trying to install the online system in sub-district and village administratives, including in the offices of the Employment Body, Regional Revenue Body, Integrated Public Service Body (BPPTSP) and Finance Office,” Mano said. “So public could monitor and do the payment directly,” he said.
