Drive District Decisions with Facts

GuideK12™ is a web-based Geovisual Analytic tool that helps school districts solve critical educational challenges by visualizing data in a way that has never been possible before now. By being able to link student information with household information, a district can save time and money while increasing transparency for everything from boundary planning, to program resource allocation to student performance analysis.

Districts have loads of disparate data and an increasing amount each day. By visualizing the student and community data together on an interactive map, the data becomes actionable and meaningful. With Guide K12, decisions become more effective, efficient and transparent.

Multiple scenarios can be run in minutes to analyze the impact of proposed options with real-time data. From superintendents to school board members to the community, GuideK12 offers answers for challenging questions.



Easy to Use Throughout the District

Web-based software makes it easy for everyone to get at information instantly that could take weeks to get before. Anyone from superintendents, to business managers to school board members can easily analyze district needs in a few clicks. Role-based security protocols ensure the right information is available to the right people quickly and easily.


Our Software Gives You Unlimited Flexibility

Get fast access to enormous amounts of linked data and filter on any combination of attributes. Create, save and analyze as many scenarios as you choose and start more meaningful dialogue sooner. The drawing tool lets you select and analyze unlimited geographies, so you can cut the data however you need to see it.


It’s Fast. It’s Powerful.

Originally designed for the US Census Bureau to visualize terabytes of data, GuideK12 provides instant access to all kinds of complex scenarios. Filter on any student or household characteristic and see it displayed immediately. The logic is recorded step by step, so it’s easy to share scenarios later.


Unequaled Precision You Can Count On

GuideK12 has granular data specific to the individual and household. Others use summarized census block information, which causes assumptions and inferences from inexact data. GuideK12 allows you to get at critical segments for analysis in a way no one else can, and with authority you can trust.


Makes It Easy to be Transparent and Earn Trust

It’s a lot easier to earn support from diverse stakeholders and communities when you can easily share a wealth of scenarios, and quickly test theirs. GuideK12 records all the logic step by step, so you can share your thinking and immediately involve community members.



Enrollment Area Analysis

Easily create “what if” scenarios and obtain instant results for: Reassigning an enrollment area; opening/closing schools; Short term reassignments in the case of natural disasters; Understanding financial implications for school choice students; Optimizing resources geographically for individual learning needs.


Student Analysis Tool

Our software lets you visualize student data at the household level by filtering on fields uploaded from the school SIS (ELL, Grade level, Demographic, ethnicity, etc.). Analysis on these attributes is difficult or impossible without GuideK12. We help you quickly see if your resources are geographically aligned with your district’s needs.


Scenario Tracking

GuideK12 helps increase community dialogue, trust and support because all the assumptions and logic driving each scenario you build is saved and tracked. So every scenario can be easily retrieved to share with board members, administration, community members or other stakeholders. Our software’s reliable, iterative process makes input and feedback easy to incorporate.


Attendance Area Locator

Parents, realtors and other community members have a few simple questions: “Is this house/lot/apartment in the district? What elementary/middle/high school would I attend?” GuideK12 can help reduce calls to the front office and parent frustration with a 24/7 look-up feature to find assigned schools for any address in your district.


Student and Household Profile

Empower district administrative personnel with the right information to answer questions quickly. GuideK12 puts all the information — such as student address, parent/guardian info, phone numbers, bus numbers, demographic characteristics and more — in place for front office staff to be efficient and more productive.


Dynamic Reports

GuideK12 offers robust, web-based reporting with the ability to export to a spreadsheet or shape file reader. Our fast, dynamic tools help generate fresh perspectives and insights in seconds.
