Making Informed Decisions Using Online K-12 Enrollment Data

The Challenge

Throughout its 38 schools in California, Aspire Public Schools was using an inefficient and time intensive paper-based system to manage their application, lottery, and waitlist processes. “We were spending valuable time looking through stacks of paper to track down the information we needed,” said Clinton Loo, Operations Analyst for the charter school system. They needed a better way to make data-based K-12 enrollment decisions and effectively communicate those decisions to students and parents.

The Results (Data Points):

Schools Managed by One Platform
  • Implemented an online student application process that was more efficient, consistent, equitable, and transparent for both administrators and families.

  • Received easily accessible, real-time student information in order to make more insightful decisions and communicate those decisions to families in a timely manner.

  • Streamlined operations across the board, resulting in increased parent communication and engagement in all parts of the process.
