Introduction to School Locator

School Locator can be used to inventory educational facilities and relevant districts, communicate neighborhood schools, and promote educational resources available in a community.

When people search for a home, one important factor is always the school district. Even if the buyer doesn't have children, school districts have an impact on home value and living area. When other factors are constant, a good school district tends to equal a good neighborhood, or location. And a good location can mean safer neighborhoods and amenities like public parks and services. Increasing access to school attendance zones and other educational resources makes it easier for home buyers to invest in your community.School Locator is typically implemented by local governments, or school districts, that want to promote high-quality educational resources available in a community.

The School Locator solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you inventory educational facilities and relevant districts, communicate neighborhood schools, and promote educational resources available in a community.
