PASBO Offers Webcasts to Introduce Forecast5 Analytics

PASBO is pleased to announce that we have joined in a strategic partnership with Forecast5 Analytics to provide an array of analytic tools that can assist your school in analyzing operational and performance data.  

We are partnering in this effort to provide Pennsylvania schools with data applications that will deliver new and valuable insights to school leaders. Forecast5 has released the following applications in Pennsylvania:

5Sight – an analytic tool that leverages Pennsylvania-specific data (financial, salary, student performance, enrollment), allowing school administrators to generate insights related to performance data and make comparisons with benchmark peer groups across the state
5Cast – a budget preparation and forecasting tool that incorporates “what-if” simulations to facilitate multi-year financial planning
5Maps – a geospatial analytic tool that integrates user-specific data overlaid on a Google Map to gain numerous insights on projects including enrollment projections, boundary simulations, program/service delivery analysis, and academic assessment
Join us for a demonstration of the 5Sight application via webinar on November 17-18. We're sure that you'll find 5Sight to be organized, easy to use, and rich in both data and pre-built analytics. We're hoping that you or a member of your team can join us for a one-hour webinar to introduce the program at one of the following times:

Tuesday, November 17, 3 p.m. (ET)

Wednesday, November 18, 10 a.m. (ET)
