Determining where to build a new school is a complex and sensitive issue. School boards face tight budgets as well as political pressure to deliver the best level of service for all students. A data-driven approach to site selection is one of the best ways to make smarter decisions that deliver a stronger return on your investment and minimize blowback from parents.
Map Business Online uses up-to-date Census data to create school district ZIP code maps that show you where families live, where your current schools are and which areas would be best for expansion. This can help you make more informed decisions and provides an accessible visual aid that can be useful in community outreach.
MBO includes public school districts and public data layers describing schools by staff allocations and pupil population. School district areas can be color shaded by a variety of demographic categories including population, population by age groups, house hold income levels, and ethnicity. Even pertinent school business data can be imported for use in color shading and classifying school districts.
Location mapping software like Map Business Online can also be used to reduce overhead expenses associated with busing and transportation. By enabling the creation of custom ZIP code maps that show you where your current students are and what public transportation options are in the area, location mapping software can help you better organize your vehicles and drivers, keeping fuel and maintenance costs down. MBO supports time windows for scheduling and time planning.
Map Business Online allows for automatic imports of student information from Excel and other databases, providing seamless integration with your existing software and, ultimately, more accurate and informed route planning. This has obvious benefits for budget-conscious public school boards, including easier scheduling and lower operating expenses.
