The Rivers State Ministry of Education has in the last four (4) years embarked on various infrastructural and organizational reforms. With the massive support of His Excellency, our schools are wearing new looks, our teachers are motivated, and ICT has been introduced to give the proper organizational structure required to improve the quality of education service delivery in the State.
We are amongst the pioneer states in the country embarking on such a massive data project as Rivers State Education Management Information System (RivEMIS). This project ensures conformance to best practices, easy administration and management, evaluation/monitoring of level of compliance to policies and regulations in the education sector.
To give meaningful direction to all these, we have developed a new minimum requirement document for all schools in the state. This is available online at rivemis.riversstate.gov.ng. It contains all the requirements that must be met before a school can be duly approved to operate in the state.
Furthermore, our educational portal, RivEMIS now stands as the main interface between us, the public and schools operating in the state (both public and private).
RIVEMIS is a One-stop-shop for Education Management and Administration in Rivers state initiated to improve the quality of education service delivery.

CERTIFICATE PRINTING AND ISSUANCE FOR BECE
Since the inception of BECE in 2008/2009 session, candidates have not been issued their certificates. However, the current administration has taken necessary approaches such as result migration (of 2008/2009 – 2017/2018 BECE results) to ensure that all certificates are available and ready for issuance to past and current candidates. The schedule for BECE certificate issuance and printing is as follows:
|S/N||YEAR OF BECE EXAM||CERTIFICATE PRINTING START DATE|
|1||2017/2018||15th April, 2019.|
|2||2016/2017||31st May, 2019.|
|3||2015/2016||31st May, 2019.|
|4||2014/2015||31st May, 2019.|
COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES FOR EXAM REGISTRATION
For effective communication as regards exams registration, various channels would be engaged to ensure real-time updates and dissemination of information.
- Dedicated Call/Support lines to send information across to schools.
- Use of SMS.
- Newsletter via e-mails.
- Advertisements (photos & videos), jingles and announcements.
- Live chats (Whatsapp, Facebook, Webchat)
- On Facebook, twitter and histogram our handle is @riversemis
The Ministry in partnership with the ICT department will be making available an EMIS SchoolBox which contains the following:
- A laptop
- Data bundle for the year
- Solar panel + Inverter
- Technical support
This provides every school with the minimum required tool to use the RivEMiS platform. With an affordable monthly subscription, both public and private schools can fulfil their role to comply with the various policies of Government in the State.
To adequately support all of these and many more services, the Ministry is upgrading its ICT infrastructure with the help of the State ICT department to ensure that there are hiccups on the way.
We are hopeful that all these and many more would have been setup before September 2019.
