GuideK12, sole provider of geovisual data analytic software for the education market was recently named as an NSBA Innovation Showcase Company, one of only six companies chosen, and will be presenting at the annual NSBA conference, held April 12-15th in San Diego, CA. 

As part of this event, GuideK12 will be sponsoring a Technology Leadership tour for NSBA members to gain insights from the US Navy SEALs.  This represents a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes.

“We are honored to be part of the NSBA conference, and are looking forward to the Leadership Insights tour that GuideK12 is sponsoring.  In addition to the sponsorship, GuideK12 will have the pleasure of hosting a round table discussion during the conference for administrators, including one of our customers, Dr. Manual Isquierdo, Sunnyside USD Superintendent”  says GuideK12, CEO Chuck Amos.  “We appreciate the work of NSBA and Ann Flynn, NSBA Director of Educational Technology, for making this all possible.”

GuideK12 web-based solution enables education decision makers to instantly filter and analyze school district data by adding a geographic and visual dimension to student and community information and run real time “what if” scenarios.  As part of the conference, GuideK12 will be unveiling a new custom layers capability, as well.  By adding custom layers to the online map, districts can add custom shapes, dots or lines such as School Board Member districts or storm paths, charter schools etc.  This capability takes this technology to a new level for analysis.

The selected companies will be featured by NSBA in an exclusive Innovation Showcase Pavilion and Showcase session during the NSBA Annual Conference in San Diego, April 13-15, 2013, which will allow each to tell their story to conference attendees. In addition, GuideK12 along with the other 5 companies will be featured in NSBA’s magazine for school leaders, American School Board Journal.  In addition, all six companies will be highlighted through webinars and white papers designed for districts active in NSBA’s Technology Leadership Network to gain knowledge of what each has to offer.
