2021-03-22

Subscription service reports on start dates, vacation& summer school schedules, days in school, etc.

Utilizing valuable insights provided by School Nutrition Association (SNA) members,  Burbio is offering the new  Calendar Insights subscription service to provide school foodservice suppliers with critical school calendar data to optimize productivity and manage uncertainty given the pandemic’s impact on school schedules. Burbio, a data service that measures school and community life, is providing data and analysis on school calendars of over 80,000 K-12 schools from all 50 states.

“The last year has been very disruptive due to COVID-19 and the many changes to theK-12 educational experience,” said SNA CEO Patricia Montague, CAE. “Burbio’s service will provide unprecedented insight into the 2021/2022 year and allow our industry members to better manage their businesses, serving over 50 million school children.” 

Burbio began working with the SNA earlier this year, sharing the company’s  School Opening Tracker which measures K-12learning plans (virtual, hybrid, traditional in-person) across the US.

“The SNA’s mission of providing nutritious meals to students has never been more important, and we are very excited to be launching this service with them,” said Burbio CEO Julie Roche. “We are launching with some very specific tools built with member feedback and are continually adding new elements.”

Among the features of Burbio’s service is a district-by-district view of school start dates in the Fall of 2021, comparisons to 2020-21 and 2019-20 school years, as well as features measuring summer school trends and vacation patterns. Burbio’s service has a powerful “days in school” feature that will allow SNA partners to measure how many days districts are open in a given period to better forecast needs. Information will be delivered daily or weekly in digital formats and can be integrated into planning and forecasting tools.

“TheK-12 landscape is rapidly changing, and we view this as an important business intelligence tool that will help our members manage uncertainty in this new environment,” added Sherry Carrigan, SNA SVP of Business Development and Meetings.
