TASA Partners with Forecast5 to Offer Districts Statewide Analytics Program

08.20.2015 — Forecast 5 LogoTASA has joined in a strategic partnership with Forecast5 to provide an array of analytic tools that can assist school districts in analyzing operational data and performance. TASB and TASBO are also partnering in this effort to provide Texas school districts with data applications that will deliver new and valuable insights to school leaders. Forecast5 has released the following applications in Texas:

  • 5Sight – an analytic tool that leverages Texas-specific data (statewide PEIMS submissions and other data sets), allowing school administrators to generate insights and make comparisons with benchmark peer groups across the state

  • 5Cast – a budget preparation and forecasting tool that incorporates “what-if” simulations to facilitate planning

  • 5Maps – a geospatial analytic tool that integrates user-specific data overlaid on a Google Map to gain insights on enrollment projections, boundary simulations, program/service delivery analysis, and academic assessment

“The data analytics provided by Forecast5 will offer a unique opportunity for Texas school leaders to analyze key areas of school operations to ensure effective and efficient decision making,” said Johnny L. Veselka, executive director of TASA. “These tools will be especially helpful in communicating financial and academic performance data to parents and community members, enabling their involvement in important decisions regarding the education of their children, while also assuring the district’s accountability to the community.”

Sign up for one of the following free, one-hour webinars to see a demonstration of these exciting new tools for data discovery, decision support, and enhanced communication with district stakeholders.
