NCES 2018099 School Attendance Boundary Survey (SABS) File Documentation: 2015-2016
The School Attendance Boundaries Survey (SABS) was an experimental survey conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) with assistance from the U.S. Census Bureau to collect school attendance boundaries for regular schools in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Attendance boundaries, sometimes known as school catchment areas, define the geographic extent served by a local school for the purpose of student assignments. School district administrators create attendance areas to help organize and plan district-wide services, and districts may adjust individual school boundaries to help balance the physical capacity of local schools with changes in the local school-age population. This document summarizes the final cycle of the experimental boundary collection. The 2015-16 SABS collection was intended to update boundaries collected during the 2013-2014 cycle and to supplement boundaries from additional districts not included in the previous collection.

NCES 2018080 Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) Geocodes: Public Schools and Local Education Agencies, 2016-2017
This document describes the content of geocode files developed for schools and LEAs reported in the 2016-2017 Common Core of Data (CCD) school and agency universe as of November 2017, including point locations (latitude/longitude values) for schools and LEAs developed by the Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) program. These data are needed to address a variety of spatially-oriented tasks and research questions. They provide information needed to construct NCES school-based surveys; they provide indicators needed to help determine program eligibility; and they provide the foundation for determining geographic associations with other types of entities. The geocode files in the CCD include the unique school and agency identifiers assigned by CCD, and this shared ID can be used to integrate the geocodes with the CCD directory files.
