With the school year coming to a close it becomes a pivotal moment for school districts all across the country in regards to presenting the annual budget. Should a district understate what they need for the 2019-2020 school year, they may find themselves making tough decisions with unfortunate repercussions across their school community.

In Florida, the organization FEFP (Florida Education Finance Program) sets a schedule with the key factors in allocating school budgets. Student enrollment, classroom attendance, and student transportation are some of the biggest.

The school bus ridership is just as important, and current methods are even staggeringly more prone to miscounts than classroom attendance. A study performed by ATU, demonstrated that 55 percent of K-12 students take the school bus. Districts need to accurately report bus ridership to support a significant budget to transport these students. Bus attendance is just as important as classroom attendance and being able to measure the number of students onboard is crucial.

So what can you do and how?

Money in school districts is tied to attendance. For this reason, you need to ensure you are getting the most accurate counts for classroom attendance and bus ridership. With ReaXium, every student is accounted for. We’ve been working with a number of school districts this summer to help them maximize their budget needs.
