Successful Rezoning Initiative

“Rezoning even a successful district can be a hot topic, but GuideK12 was a big component of a very smooth process for Cleveland City Schools,” Dr. Russell Dyer, Director of Schools, said. “You can’t win over everyone on everything, but I can’t believe how well things went. We wouldn’t have been able to do that without GuideK12.”  – Cleveland Daily Banner Newspaper

How It Works

GuideK12 combines multiple data streams into one easy-to-use interactive map.

Important data can often get overlooked in spreadsheets.  When student, household, school and county data are all linked in one interactive tool, more comprehensive answers are revealed. Nightly uploads means the data is timely.

We bring your data together in one picture, breaking down silos, allowing for an unparalleled level of transparency for your team, saving precious time and resources.  Data becomes actionable and meaningful with GuideK12.

Thank you to our customers for nominating GuideK12 for these awards.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to serve such amazing administrators and districts across the country everyday.

  • Easy-to-use for all district members

District Users of GuideK12

Role based security makes it easy to for the right people to obtain the right data when they need it.   Administrators can analyze district-wide changes. Specialists can study the impact of proposals.  Front office personnel quickly provide accurate answers to community members.  GuideK12 puts data closest to the appropriate decision maker.  From some of the largest districts in the country to those serving a few thousand students, GuideK12 helps facilitate more collaborative, transparent decisions.


I don’t know how we could have done this without GuideK12. The product provides an accurate picture of how the district is laid out, displays demographic information, and allows the district to be transparent with the community while making informed decisions about boundary changes.
