How School Attendance Zone Boundary Works
School attendance zones are the geographic area around a school that defines where students need to live in order to attend. These shapes are created using geographical information systems (GIS) data and can be digitally superimposed onto a digital map.
Here’s How it Works:
School attendance zones are compiled from GIS data, map images and address lists from local schools and their districts.
School district boundaries, compiled from Census Bureau data, are then enhanced with school attendance zones data.
Public and private school addresses from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) are validated and positioned.
Then the points are manually moved to the school rooftops ensuring the most precise location.
ATTOM delivers your school attendance zones and boundary data in an industry-standard GIS format called shapefiles. Shapefiles were popularized by ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute), which is the leading GIS system provider in the world.
Contains the base-level content required to search for and display the geographic boundary. Used to map boundaries visually and determine a specific points (longitude and latitude) within a specific boundary.
