District Administration features Forecast5 Analytics in its latest issue to highlight how their decision support tools are helping school administrators improve academic return on investment in today's challenging budget environment.

Naperville, IL (March 1, 2018) - District Administration features Forecast5™ Analytics, Inc. in its latest magazine issue, "Tools for K12 educational leaders to leverage data to develop future-focused strategies". Forecast5 is significantly helping school administrators improve academic return on investment in today's challenging budget environment. Michael English, CEO/President of Forecast5, shares how district administrators can leverage data analytics tools for decision making, uncovering new resources, executing multiyear projections, and performing peer comparisons. 

How can district administrators make more efficient, effective and strategic decisions?

There is data available to support many of the decisions that school administrators make every day. Often though, it takes time to manually gather and model that data. If a project uses 80 percent of its timeline to gather and model data, that leaves just 20 percent of the time to actually analyze it. Forecast5™ Analytics tries to flip that paradigm to make data gathering and modeling the minority of the project time, giving school administrators more time to analyze the information. This provides a better chance of developing a superior solution to a given problem. Our products have the capability to pull information together faster, as well as to create clear and effective presentations that are better understood by stakeholders.
