GIS as a Tool for Launching Great Public Schools in Los Angeles
Track: Administration and Policy
Authors: Margeaux Randolph
Using ArcGIS Online's spatial analysis tools, CharterZone has identified thousands of students in neighborhoods across Los Angeles attending low performing schools. Thus, we've developed GIS tools that support school leaders with their strategic planning, fundraising, expansion, and education reform efforts. We integrate school performance, demographic, poverty, population projections, city zoning, and environmental hazard data to help leaders target areas of need to launch great public schools.
