Bird’s Eye View of Your District

SchoolvisionThe days when all you do is wait for students to register for school are long gone, but can a district administrator or superintendent do to estimate class sizes? The answer is to know the ins and outs of your district. SchoolVision 2.13f can help by combining demographic and geographic data of a district, producing maps that can integrate any kind of school or population data. For instance, instead of having your eyes glaze over while trying to parse sheets of Excel charts on future enrollment, SchoolVision can graph population shifts and birth rates with bar graphs superimposed over a district map. On top of ethnicity and income, the program can work with a variety of data including special education programs, bus routes and students who travel from other areas for classes.
