Two Large School Districts in Texas select Davis Demographics for Demographic Consulting Services and Software

Dallas ISD has selected the SchoolSite planning extensions for ArcGIS to enhance their GIS analysis capabilities for attendance boundary planning and forecasting. The project includes developing datasets necessary for boundary simulation as well as on-site training of District staff in the use of the software. In the state capitol, the Austin ISD, previous users of SchoolSite GIS software, recently selected DDP to provide additional enrollment forecasting and planning services over the next several years. The advantage of this expanded working relationship includes the ability to deliver the enrollment forecasts, analysis and data to the District staff using SchoolSite for additional in-house mapping and analysis. These two new Districts will be supported through our recently opened regional office in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area.
