DecisionInsite’s professional team of analysts generates both district-wide and school-by-grade projections. Our projections are specifically designed to support budgeting, facilities planning and staff deployment. They are easily displayed inside the DI StudentView System and a single click exports them to excel for additional analysis.
Residential Development Research
DecisionInsite can conduct residential development research for school districts. This is an especially important service for facility planning departments whose planning staff has been reduced. The results of the research are then integrated into the DI StudentView System. Clients can review the projects and the number of students projected out of new housing. Additionally, those students are integrated into the district-wide and school-by-grade projections.
MySchoolLocator saves staff time and provides a great service to parents. Built upon the Google maps platform, parents can visually see their schools of attendance and get walking and driving instructions as well. MySchoolLocator℠ with Bus Stops option also displays bus stop locations and schedules.
Google Base Maps
The DI StudentView System has been built in conjunction with Google maps as part of Google’s Enterprise program. All DI maps use Google base maps. Users can select Terrain View, Google’s traditional Street map or Satellite view. Additionally, Google’s street view can be displayed inside the DI StudentView System where available.
Community Demographic Reports
Integrated into the DI StudentView System is a full array of census data. These data are updated two times each year, once in the spring and once in the fall. No other information provider to school districts keeps demographic data this up-to-date. Community Demographic data helps a district understand the community it serves and can be used to develop marketing plans to increase enrollment.
Maps tell stories. They visualize tabular data. The DI StudentView System makes map making very easy. Three clicks and a professional looking PowerPoint-ready map is created.
