Online Management System (OMS)

The OMS and the OMS training will be purchased by the NDE. Each child's screening data is entered into the OMS and scores are calculated. The OMS also provides access to materials from the BRIGANCE Readiness Activities for teachers to use in the classroom and to send home to families. Log in to the OMS.

OMS Program Information Sheet

For a program to be set up with access to the OMS, the program administrator must complete the OMS Program Information Sheet.
