School District Planning Services
Planware, a division of Educational Data Systems, provides educational planning services and software based on Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology.
We understand that planning for the needs of a school district can be an enormous task. Planning requires an intricate understanding of what is going on at all levels within the district, including the mechanics and dynamics of how the district works in its entirety. It also requires an in-depth understanding of the student populations and facilities of all your schools. Planning decisions can affect thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of people and millions of dollars. We understand the magnitude of this responsibility and are happy to support you in your planning journey.
Our software and services support school district planning four ways:
- ONPASS Pro software for boundary and school demographic planning
- LocateMySchool Software-as-a-service (SaaS)
- Enrollment forecasting studies
- GIS services, including custom maps, geocoding, and custom studies
Our experience, technical expertise, and software help get your very important and highly specialized planning jobs done—helping to free up time so that school district staff can focus on other tasks to support student success.
“When school starts in the fall, do I take my kindergartener to School A or School F?” “What high school will my junior high student go to next year?” “Will my child attend the new school that is being built?” “If we move into the district, what schools will my children attend and how far will they have to travel to get to school?” These types of questions will be asked thousands of times over the course of a school year. Clarify borders and school coverage with our web-based mapping service. LocateMySchool is a user-friendly online resource that shows parents, students, and school staff the information they need on school assignments and locations by enabling them to identify specific school assignments for any street address in the community.
