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.
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.
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."
