It’s hard to work as a team from an inbox or file server—files get lost, versions get crossed. With Allovue, everyone can work on a budget at the same time. From the finance office to principals and department heads, all budget owners see the right information when they need it.
You’ve always known that how your district plans its spending is a reflection of its priorities. Now, it’s time to make things official. Allovue helps you stitch together budgeted expenses and goals for school resource planning that are grounded in your district’s strategic pillars.
Since personnel accounts for the majority of a budget, errors here can have devastating effects on your district’s finances. Unlike other systems, Allovue connects accounting and staffing data in one place to get a picture of the hiring outlook at the district earlier in the year.
Budgeting for 80145-F-00035135 is abstract when you don’t speak in account codes. Allovue keeps granular data for the finance team, but translates account strings into real words like “General Purpose” and “Discretionary” so that budget owners can plan dollars in human terms.
Red flag! There’s a misalignment with how the budget owner is thinking about resourcing this priority. Do you have this insight?
Drawing connections within a budget between priorities like community engagement and school strategies like parental involvement is game-changing. It saves time and helps your district analyze resource distribution in order to find and correct where funds are misaligned.
Position data are confined to a payroll system, account strings are logged in your ERP, and strategies are scattered across Central Office planning documents and school improvement plans. When time is scarce (and when isn’t it?), the difficult work of budgeting intentionally toward big goals falls off the radar.
Allovue brings Academic, Personnel, and Finance teams together in budgets that are easier to build, more efficient to manage and closely tied to strategic aims like resource equity.
Need to change a benefits package that flows through every school budget? Make that change just once in Allovue and the update will happen anywhere the position appears across all budgets.
Turn meetings into time spent doing more valuable work when collaboration happens in Allovue. One Allovue district saved 138 hours of time by eliminating a series of now-unnecessary staff meetings.
Move from asking, “What is my Title I budget? How can I see how much I’ve spent?” to questions like, “What if I reallocated some of my sub funding to a literacy specialist?”
Spreadsheets are pros at burying budget discrepancies and miscalculations. One Allovue district discovered a $17M budget discrepancy within the first few weeks of budgeting with Allovue.
“Allovue provides district and school leaders with the knowledge, tools, and support needed to plan for and implement a budget that can be easily shared with stakeholders.”
“This year, we’ve accelerated our timeline by at least 75 days. Next year, we are already planning on condensing the process by another 30 days or more.”
Allovue makes it easier to collaboratively develop staffing and spending plans aligned to district goals. All of the work of budgeting—across Central Office, school sites, and departments—happens in one place and in real-time (no spreadsheets required).
Allovue streamlines budget planning and financial management for everyone. It’s all about ensuring your entire district is budgeting with fidelity at the start of the year and spending with fidelity against those plans throughout the year.
