New Boundary Look Up Tool Available!

Posted: 15 Mar 2016 08:55 AM PDT

There is now a new “boundary” lookup tool for parents to use for determining which school a certain address “should” attend. It’s very easy and intuitive. (It DOES NOT indicate whether a student should ride the bus or walk.)



  • To use it full screen click the “full screen” button in the upper right-hand corner of the map interface.
  • You can use the sprocket icon to choose which “layers” are shown. By default only the district layer is shown, but you can change that to elementary boundaries, middle school etc.
  • When you search an address it will show you which elementary, middle school and high school (only one choice) that address should attend.
  • You can also click the directions and it will use google maps to plot walking or driving directions from the home to the school
