Longitudinal School Attendance Boundary Survey (LSABS)

Longitudinal School Attendance Boundary Survey (LSABS) is a novel data collection effort that aims to collect longitudinal data on school attendance zone boundaries from as many school districts as possible across the country. Co-led by Dr. Erica Frankenberg and Dr. Christopher Fowler, the project will lead to a database of attendance zone boundaries from 1990 to 2020, which will be made available to the public for research. The project has received funding from the National Science Foundation and Penn State University.

Given the broad implications of this project for research and practice, we are working hard to collect attendance zone boundaries from as many school districts as possible. We welcome any boundary data, or leads on where to find data, from anyone who might have this information. These data can come in many forms: GIS shapefiles (preferred though not required), digital images, photographs of old wall maps, descriptions of boundaries in school board minutes, spreadsheets linking addresses to schools, newspaper articles, etc.
