What is CASES21?

CASES21 is the software component of CASES (Computerised Administrative System Environment in Schools) which is the package provided to Victorian government schools to support school administration, finance and central reporting.

CASES consists of standard hardware, and administrative and financial software. It is supported by the Department’s hardware and communications infrastructure, an extensive training program, user and installation documents, a Service Desk and regional support staff.

The software is upgraded several times a year to meet changing business and reporting needs. Representatives from schools and corporate offices decide on the content of each upgrade.

CASES21 is a customised version of the Maze school software system, which is marketed commercially by CIVICA.
