School District GeoDemographic Information System
  ... data analytics tools for K-12 schools & school districts

Simplify viewing and analysis of the complex relationships between students, staff, schools, attendance zones, finances, infrastructure and demographics ... this involves using the right set of integrated data and tools to understand the mix of these entities and how they are changing. The School District GeoDemographic Information System (SDGIS) provides a solution.

How have school attendance zones changed geographically and demographically since 2010? Collaborative management, evaluation and planning are facilitated through visual analysis of the data. Using analytical tools and data can lead to insights, improved learning opportunities and more cost-effective outcomes.

Examples of these complex relationships include this story about schools in New York City. There are hundreds of other such stories that are very different in communities across America -- all sharing the need for better tools and methods to examine and understand the current situation and change.

The SDGIS enables you to use GIS tools to visually analyze demographic, economic, and education-related data. Explore patterns. Flexibly, interactively develop insights through map views and database queries that can lead to education improvement, more efficient ways of managing operations, and/or gain insights into the school district and school district community infrastructure.

A school district has many diverse data about students and its community. Usually the data are available in tables, lists, and charts and often not easily used by teams, committees, planners, board of education, administration, other staff and for collaboration with stakeholders. The SDGIS enables you to knit these data together for wide-ranging analyses. By enabling district planners and decision-makers to more effectively identify and understand patterns, the district can better choose steps to improve performance and educational opportunities.
