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.
