GuideK12™ Named a District Administration Magazine 2012 Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product

Eagan, MN – December 4, 2012 — GuideK12™ is thrilled to announce that it has been selected as a 2012 District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Product.  GuideK12 offers an easy to use web-based Geovisual Analytic Tool that allows district decision makers to create “real-time” scenarios and answer the questions surrounding very complex district decisions. Administrators are able to quickly filter and visualize data on a map to see patterns and trends that are not apparent in a chart or spreadsheet alone.

With more than 1,000 nominations this year, a new record, the winners were selected by the editors of District Administration and were based upon both the quantity of nominations and the quality of reader descriptions. The complete list of winners has been announced online and in the December issue of District Administration magazine.

The annual District Administration Readers’ Choice Top 100 Products award recognizes leaders in the education industry, and provides superintendents and other senior school district leaders with the unique opportunity to learn what products their colleagues around the country are using, and how these products contribute to the success of their districts.

“The record number of nominations we received this year was astonishing,” says District Administration’s executive editor, Odvard Egil Dyrli. “There were so many excellent recommendations from school administrators who shared how the products made significant differences in their districts, and choosing the Top 100 proved to be challenging and difficult. We are delighted to announce the honorees for 2012 and trust that the list will be a valuable resource for our readers.”

GuideK12 enables education decision makers to instantly explore and analyze school district data by adding a geographic and visual dimension to their student and community information.  By visualizing information spatially, decisions can be more efficient and effective for everything from analyzing boundary changes, to mapping student performance, tracking school choice, or optimizing district resources.

“We are honored to receive the DA 2012 Top 100 Products Award,” says GuideK12 CEO, Chuck Amos, “By liberating data and immediately making it available to those who need it most, a district can save time and money, provide current information while increasing transparency and community support. Schools don’t need more data, they need more insight into the data, and with our web-based tool we are equipping those closest to the decisions with the information they need for more proactive planning.”
