August 2016 Update. This section has been updated using 2015-16 school district boundaries. See the updated section at http://proximityone.com/sd1516.htm.
The master set of U.S. school district boundary files (shapefiles) is updated every two years. The 2013-14 update is now available and includes 13,479 school districts. These shapefiles provide the geography to develop thematic pattern and reference maps and perform geospatial analysis using GIS software.
The next U.S. school district boundary files master set will be available in late 2016 for the 2015-16 school year. ProximityOne updates this set of boundary files as changes are made on a state-by-state basis.
