This data is used to create school attendance zones, as shown here:
Ideally, the data included in this set would be exportable as the standard CSV/XML/JSON, and a single row/object would include at least the following information:
As Arlington Public Schools (APS) are working through the school re-zoning process, having access to the raw data for planning unit boundaries would allow for optimization models to be developed and for results to be shared with APS for consideration in their final boundary change decisions. As part of the boundary file dataset, it would also be beneficial if the dataset included student population to be factored into the optimization model.
|County Staff Notes|
Arlington Public Schools is consulting internally about the level of effort required to provide student information at the Planning Unit level on the County’s GIS portal and satisfying privacy concerns related to making such student information public. In the meantime, please reference the APS statistics page for information on student demographics. At this time we cannot publish the enrollment information but will leave this request open until there is a determination on APS's ability to share student data at the Planning Unit level on the County’s GIS portal.
