Mapping School Districts
  -- tools & data to map & geospatially analyze school districts

April 2017 .. use the tools & data described in this section to map & geospatially analyze school districts. Ready-to-use state-by-state GIS projects may be downloaded enabling you to view and create custom maps almost instantly. Benefit from the power of using GIS software to perform tasks not available on Web-based mapping options. Use the latest school district and related shapefiles. See terms of use.

The Mapping School Districts resources are a part of the School District GeoDemographics Information System (SDGIS) and National Children and Education Statistics (NCES) programs.

What You Can Do; How You Benefit
There are no pre-requisites or learning required to use these resources. To be most effective, you will need to spend a little time familiarizing yourself with near intuitive operations. See about support that we provide in weekly lab sessions (below).
  • create map views of school districts not available elsewhere.
  • examine how one school district geographically relates to another district.
  • examine the urban/rural composition of school districts.
  • view how school districts covering the same geographic area relate.
  • examine the geographic relationship between cities/counties and school districts.
  • query districts by grade range.
  • create thematic patterns maps for selected demographic-economic attributes.
  • determine the school district for a specific street or address.
  • relate the Federal school district code to the state school district code.
  • add other data & different geography; e.g. schools, census tracts, etc.
  • label the geography in many ways.
  • place queries on geography; e.g. show only elementary school districts.
  • create thematic pattern maps.
  • zoom to neighborhoods; view street level detail.

Schools and teachers: consider using these resources for classroom use. Familiarize students about how GIS resources can be used with a minimum of learning time and no cost. Enable students to use their own geography and adapt that learning to more general geography. See related Mapping Statistical Data ready-to-use GIS projects.

Capabilities and Features
Mapping School District (MSD) GIS projects are available for each state. The following views have been developed using the Texas MSD GIS project. The following graphics illustrate the what and how the GIS Projects can be used.

1. Texas by School District

.. view developed with CV XE GIS and related GIS project.

2. Patterns of Economic Prosperity by School District
The following graphic shows patterns of median household income ($MHI) by school district.
See $MHI interval - pattern settings in legend panel at left of map window. Four Texas metros shown (bold boundary) using metros layer. Click graphic for larger view. Expand browser to full window for best quality view. Larger view shows mini-profile (partial view, scroll section in application) for selected district (Houston ISD at pointer). Click any district to view profile when application running; optionally copy to clipboard, paste to spreadsheet.

Using Layers in the Project
The following graphic shows the layers included in the GIS project. The layers are further described below. Set queries by dbl-clicking a layer name in the legend panel. This graphic illustrates how a query can be used to selected/show only unified school districts.

About the School District Data
The school district data are developed from four sources having slightly differ data dates/time frames. As a result, some caution must be used in viewing/using these data. The school district "master list" starts with the latest boundary files. These data are derived from the 2016 TIGER/Line files and reflect the 2015-16 school year boundaries. These are the most recent boundary data available for all districts.

School district demographic-economic data are integrated from the 2015 American Community Survey 5-year estimates (ACS 2015). These data are tabulated for the 2014-15 school year boundaries. Data may not be available for districts which had boundary change during these years. These are the most recent demographic data available for all districts.

School district financial data are integrated from the FY 2014 Common Core of Data school district finances data (SDFA FY 2014). These data are tabulated for the 2014 school districts. Data may not be available for districts which had boundary change during these years (14-15 to 15-16). These are the most recent financial data available for all districts. Note that the finances data are collected by the Census Bureau, reflect cash accounting basis and might different substantially from a state's own accounting system.

School district administrative data are integrated from the 2015-16 preliminary Common Core of Data (see related CCD Admin Data). These data are tabulated for the 2015-16 school districts. These are the most recent administrative data available for all districts

Viewing a Tabular Profile for a District
The following graphic shows a mini-profile for a school district. Click the name of the layer of interest in the legend panel ... in this example a school district. Next, click a geographic object (Houston ISD in this example). The mini profile displays as shown. The profile includes the values for all attributes in the shapefile dataset for this geographic object.
