School District Analytics to Support Accountability and Transparency | ActPoint KPI


ActPoint KPI, a leading school business and district operations performance management service created in collaboration with the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS), announced a comprehensive overhaul to their user-interface. Finance, Operations, HR and IT leaders now have an even more powerful tool to ensure their district’s funds are spent in direct alignment with their district’s strategy to support student learning. Updates include:

  • User communities
  • Advanced charts and data
  • Easy sharing to stakeholders
  • Performance modeling
  • Dynamic, personalized homepage

The demand for accountability and transparency with public funds in schools has grown considerably in the past ten years. The needs of a business officer in a school district go beyond just forecasting and standard modeling. The new KPI features allow you to:

  • Understand what levers have the most impact on your bottom line, performance, budget, management of resources and effectiveness
  • Share knowledge within a team and across districts
  • Learn the operational best practices of the most efficient leaders
  • Leverage tools and knowledge of experienced business and operations leaders
  • Advocate for funding needs easily to district leaders and boards
  • Create accountability and transparency across all departments
  • Surface inefficiencies and underlying factors
  • Conduct thorough root cause analyses.

The new communities, charts, and account functionality give school districts an unprecedented ability to be data-driven in their approach to resource allocation. 

The new features were made available to all customers on February 15th.
