Attendance Zone Development
Establishing new attendance zone boundaries can be a daunting process. DeskMap Systems makes the project easier and more accurate by supplying student data and maps for new attendance zone boundaries.
DeskMap Systems assists the school district in determining the criteria for determining the new boundaries. Boundaries can be established based upon a number of criteria including ethnic and socioeconomic information. School capacities, transportation, existing neighborhoods, new growth areas within the school district and other factors are also taken into account.
Current student addresses are mapped and plotted to more accurately understand student distributions.
DeskMap Systems can produce several scenarios to provide the school district with a variety of possibilities. A table is provided displaying the number of students by grade type, ethnicity and other characteristics. Wall-size, smaller maps, and maps for the school district's web site can also be produced for each new attendance zone scenario.
