This map of all School District facilities was created by Brian James Kirk of PlanPhilly with District and state data compiled and analyzed by the Notebook. This Excel spreadsheet, compiling our various data sources, was used to create the map.
We're still working on improving the display of data in this map. Please let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions. We hope in the future to add charter schools and the District's closed facilities. Also, please leave a comment or email us if you find any errors on the map. Thanks for your help in improving the map.
In addition to name and address, each facility includes the following information:
Facility type: As identified by the District
Built: Year of construction
Current status: Whether the facility is open or closed, whether it is owned or leased
Grades: Current grade configuration
2010 school enrollment: Based on District figures for fall 2010
% increase in enrollment, 2005-2010: Based on District figures for 2005, 2010
% of school capacity in use: Fall 2010 enrollment as a % of Feb. 2010 capacity*
AYP status in 2010: Based on state data
Keystone Achievement Award winner: School has met adequate yearly progress (AYP) for two consecutive years
*As part of the facilities master plan, the District and URS Corporation have updated capacity numbers for all District schools
but have declined to release the new data.
UPDATE: The District released the updated data on April 8 and the Notebook is working to incoporate it into the map.
