A knowledgeable public is a more engaged public. Help each local community understand how their school’s expenditures compare to the district average and peer schools, as well as trends in spending and top vendors.
Equitable does not mean equal; we recognize that varied student populations require different resources. Provide K-12 district administrators crucial insights into resource equity across their district, spurring actionable next steps.
Connect budgets and expenditures—by source, location, and targeted student group—to performance metrics and other non-financial indicators. Understand the relationship between spending across locations and school-based initiatives and practices that impact student learning and drive costs.
Review tailored, regularly updated public profiles for each school to better understand budgets and spending patterns at the school-level and in comparison to district averages.
Analyze actual spending by location, student characteristics, academic performance, and other factors to better understand whether resource allocation processes are supporting fiscal equity.
