When budget owners have control over the dollars allocated and spent at their school or department and can connect them to outcome-based goals, districts can better support the needs of students.

Your data powers your decisions

Build and modify district funding formula components based on school-level data including enrollment, staff-ratios, and student demographics. When districts can weigh the impact of allocation rules on their funding formulas, they are better equipped to create equitable funding strategies.

Funding weights that
match student needs

Allocate integrates student, grade, and school-level data to calculate smart weights for every school that responds to student characteristics associated with equity initiatives. Funding weights based on your district’s data creates allocations that make sense for individual schools.

Hold harmless provisions that improve equity

Enact changes to your funding formula with guardrails in place to cap the gain or loss in per-pupil spending at each school. Allocate’s hold harmless provision references the prior year’s spending and creates a “soft-landing” for year-to-year changes, so you can gradually improve funding and advance equity.
