Student Assignment

A first-of-its-kind tool for School Districts looking to adjust their student assignment system. Districts often shift neighborhood school boundaries or change school choice policies without a full understanding of the equity and financial implications of these decisions. Our Student Assignment product accounts for public policy and community-based priorities and produces multiple assignment models for discussion that optimize for these and other criteria.

Our Student Assignment product features:

  • An analytics approach to a public policy problem
  • Ability to rebalance demographics and economic disparity within schools districts while controlling for transportation cost and parent satisfaction
  • Multi objective optimization:
    • Equity
    • Home-to-school distance
    • Savings
    • Parents satisfaction
    • Other district-established priorities
  • Extensive consulting support from practitioners who have experienced district-wide changes to student assignment
  • Multiple tradeoff scenarios for discussions with community
  • Potential for additional, significant reduction in the number of routes if combined with Multi-School Bus Routing
