The educational achievement of pupils from equal socioeconomic backgrounds differs by region of the country they reside. Since their environs are susceptible to disasters like as floods, institutions in riverine locations such as Anambra West Local Government areas of Anambra State face low academic teaching and learning. Existing teaching and learning approaches, on the other hand, do not accommodate the negative consequences of the floods, such as the loss of teaching and learning resources, school absenteeism, and so on. Therefore, the study proposed a Web-based Information Management System to solve these issues and improve teaching and learning. For the analysis and implementation of the system, the Object Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology was employed. PHP 7 was used to create the application, with MySQL serving as the database management system. Once accepted, the technology would offer an online platform for continual learning, and enhancement of students' academic achievement.
