5Sight_RevExpTrends

Analyze financial trends, per student spending and resource allocation

Every district's financial story is different.  Analyze differences in resources and how that translates into different levels of per student spending and how these measures change over time.  Within a district, understand which areas of the budget have grown the most and if this is in alignment with stated goals.

5Sight_CompBenefitTrnds

Evaluate staffing ratios and compensation trends by position against peers

Examine how teacher salaries have changed over time for a district compared to its peers.  Analyze the allocation of the budget to personnel costs and the allocation of personnel spending between classroom staff, administration and support personnel.

5Sight_BenchmarkPerf

Compare student performance across a group of districts

Analyze performance of your students at the test, grade and subgroup levels, identifying areas of success and areas for improvement.  Consider not just the most recently released assessment results, but how performance is changing over time.  Identify districts demographically similar that are performing better and compare their resource allocation to yours.

"Additional funding cuts challenged our district to find creative ways to continue to balance our budget. Forecast5 tools enabled us to view data from comparable schools to learn more about trends in class sizes, salary ranges by position and more. It was a game changer for us."

Luke Francois, Ed.D, Superintendent, Mineral Point Schools, Wisconsin
