Context School Rankings is intended for use with the school point file found in Precisely's School Boundaries product. The school rankings, combined with school data from School Boundaries, offer a comprehensive view of over 40 combined attributes for public schools throughout the United States.
Context School Rankings data and geographies are linked by IDs. A universal Context ID links to a polygon ID. The following table illustrates how these IDs map to each other:
|Polygon Product File
|Public School Points
Due to changes in data availability, several alterations have been made to the School Rankings product.
Values in the STATUS field have been updated to reflect changes in a data source for School Rankings. The following table shows mappings between the old and new values:
|Old STATUS Value
|New STATUS Value
|Scheduled to be Operational
Other changes include:
- Puerto Rico is no longer represented in the School Rankings product.
- Values for attribute fields such as STATUS, FREE_LUNCH, etc. may sometimes be NULL. This happens either when we identify a school that has not yet been captured by other data providers or when data is not available.
