Local schools can now receive custom market research by Flex Academies. The new program, announced this month by CEO Joshua Chernikoff, is tailored to a particular school’s needs and ranked against similar results from hundreds of families in Flex Academies’ database.
“The data reinforces itself and shows developing trends early,” Chernikoff said about the program. “When we see that a school indexes higher or lower for a particular activity or interest, we can work the school’s leadership and parents to understand why.”
The program, called FlexFacts, was previously available only to Flex Academies clients. The heart of the program is a proprietary survey data created for Flex by leading market researchers and data analysts. Results are compared to expected norms and values from more than 600 local families at all grade levels who have already participated.
“Schools get new information handled by a trusted third party and compared to other schools, our clients understand more of the landscape outside their school and kids in all the schools benefit,” Chernikoff said. “It’s a win-win-win situation for everyone, which is why we’re willing to pay for this outreach.”
