    Guiding Principles

     
    The MiCase Consortium was created with the following guiding principles in mind:
    • We desire to maximize the value of the funds that districts put toward information systems
    • We desire to maintain uniformity with other districts and with requirements from the state and federal levels
    • We desire to achieve a system that is user friendly and easily accessible via the Internet
    • We desire to have a level of control over development of new features
    • We believe that the highest priority is to develop functionality that will most reduce the level of effort required and maximize the results from the effort invested
    • We believe that support for information systems is best provided locally by a district’s parent ISD rather than from an entity further away
    • We believe that in working together we can achieve more than each of us might working separately
    • We desire to reduce the use of paper as much as possible in order to save on the cost of paper, printing and the labor involved with handling it
    • We desire to make information accessible to everyone that can benefit from it including administration, staff, teachers, students, parents, appropriate governmental agencies and other selected partners
