School District Planning Services
We understand that planning for the needs of a school district can be an enormous task even for veteran planners or other staff that also have their hands full. Planning for your district requires intricate knowledge of what is going on at all levels within the district, the mechanics, and dynamics of how the district works in its entirety. District planning may involve opening and closing schools, assigning individual students to meet specific needs, managing and using demographic data—the list is long. These decisions can affect thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people and millions of dollars. We understand this huge responsibility, so we are here to support you in your planning journey. Our services support school district planning in three areas: providing the online school locator tool, LocateMySchool™, school district boundary planning, and enrollment forecasting. Our experience, technical expertise, and software help get these very important, highly specialized, data-intensive 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.
