Digitization is viewed as the capability to utilize digital technologies for generating processing, sharing and transacting information. Studies show that digitization has now become ubiquitous. In almost all the sectors, we routinely interact with digital technologies. As a result, the impact of digitization is being observed in such sectors. For instance, the positive impact of digitization in education sector includes more efficient administration, reduction in workload, better accessibility

However, in the context of secondary schools, the literature is conspicuously silent on the formal way of assessing the impact of digitization on both the academic performance and service delivery. As an attempt to address the gap, this paper describes a model that can evaluate the impact of digitization in such schools. Python programming tools were used to demonstrate implementation of the model. The model can help governments to formulate policies related digitization of secondary schools and can also be used by funding organization to demonstrate accountability when making investment decisions.
