This dataset contains boundaries of school districts in LA County from 2011. This has been updated to reflect changes from the earlier 2002 dataset, but still contains some information (phone numbers, etc) from 2002 that have not been validated.
There are two different kinds of school districts:
- Separated Districts – where the Elementary & Middle Schools are administered separately from the High School Districts (William Hart High School receives students form Castaic and Saugus Elementary Schools, for example).
- Union Districts – where Elementary, Middle, and High School Districts have a single administrator (Los Angeles Unified, for example).
The source of this data is the 2011 Registrar/Recorder Voting Precinct File. RRCC maintains these boundaries since they need to support elections within these districts. The RRCC file contains three columns with district information – these columns were merged together to create this single file.
