The Bay Area Schools for Excellence in Education (BASEE) is comprised of over 1800 teachers in 84 schools and 8 school districts. Tracking stipends, cost share and teacher hours, and maintaining accurate lists is a daunting task.
One of the Co-Principal Investigators developed a Microsoft Access relational database that is user-friendly and maintained by the Project Director's assistant. Tables include school data, teacher data, activity data and participation data. Each time a teacher attends an activity, a transaction record is created. These records are used to report hours and progress. We provide a monthly report to the districts that they use to provide stipends and to invoice the grant for the costs. Other reports include a directory of all schools and participants, a label-making report and a name-tag making report.
