Introduction to School Locator

School Locator can be used to share district and attendance zone boundaries with the general public.

It provides 24/7 access to an organization and the location-enabled search helps residents quickly find what school district their household is assigned to and understand what schools their children will attend. This transparent approach improves communication with the public and saves many parents time because they do not need to call the district for school assignments. The solution also helps residents and homebuyers make important decisions when considering where, and when, to make a real estate move. School Locator is typically implemented by government agencies and school districts that want to educate the public and promote public education resources available in their community.

The School Locator solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you share school district and attendance zone boundaries, highlight school performance, and promote elementary, middle, and high school educational resources available.
