K12 Insight emphasizes a systemic and systematic approach to building stakeholder trust, public engagement and data collection. The entire system comes together as a single entity to understand the district’s critical needs and to develop a comprehensive plan and survey calendar that addresses the requirements of various departments and school sites.Operating in silos

K12 Insight has a unique repository of data culled from hundreds of school districts nationwide. We administer thousands of climate surveys annually, many of which have consistent parameters surrounding the most timeless public education issues. Districts can see their results relative to the national average, as well as in comparison to other districts based on factors such as location, free/reduced lunch level and English language proficiency.
