Every Picture Tells a Story

Understanding the geographic context of your district’s data is fundamental for making more informed decisions.  GuideK12 is changing how districts see, interact, and understand multiple sets of data, all in one interactive map.


Four Powerful Geovisual Analytic Tools in One Web-Based Package


Each component of the GuideK12 suite is designed with different administrative needs in mind.  From high level analysis to detailed scenario planning, reporting or address look ups, GuideK12 provides the insight your team needs to move forward with decisions.



Explorer is a quick data analysis tool with users ranging from superintendents to front office personnel. Explorer dramatically simplifies data access by harmonizing disparate data in real time. You can quickly, interactively explore data needed to make informed decisions on everything – demographic shifts, open enrollment patterns, referendum campaigns and more.


Move from a big idea to exploring feasibility in minutes.  Create “what if” scenarios in a flash with Planner.  Planner allows you and your team to bring boundary planning to a whole new level.  With a few clicks, Planner visualizes various scenarios that afford a deeper  understanding of the impact of each potential change from multiple perspectives.  Make informed recommendations and move to a widely supported decision quickly.


From basic to complex reports, Adviser allows decision makers to aggregate data by geography or characteristic then move to an eye pleasing graph or chart.  Decisions move faster with visualized data.  Administrators can spend less time collecting data, setting up spreadsheet formulas and more time making decisions based on multiple streams of real time data.  GuideK12 puts all the data in one place with geographic context. Save time and make better decisions.


How easy is it for your community to find valuable information about the schools in the area? SchoolSearch allows districts to communicate and engage the community.  By providing parents, realtors and community members an interactive school locator, you can reduce phone calls, and provide the community accurate answers faster. SchoolSearch is the most  customizable school locator tool for your district, highlighting key information such as special programs and unique offerings. No one offers more flexibility and options in a school look up tool than GuideK12.

Who are all the families within a ½ mile from this point on the map?

Where are the PK families in your district located?

What magnet or specialized programs do parents need more information about?

Are there areas that are losing more students than they are gaining?

What are the property values in this area?

Where do the frequent voters live in the district and are there students in the house?

Where are most of the students transferring from?

Where are my students that are enrolled in a program such as ELL or those with disabilities?

Which schools are assigned to this house or apartment complex?

It is important for us to understand student migration patterns and share the facts about our schools with parents that are making decisions about where their child attends. We now have information 24/7 on our website for community members to tap into, allowing us to communicate, educate and promote our schools.
