Public Schools in North Carolina

Abstract: This dataset is an updated version of the 2008 dataset containing all public school locations in North Carolina. New schools were geocoded in ArcGIS 10 and merged with the existing dataset. Closed schools were removed,and existing attribute information was updated with current data. Some new fields were added, including designations for Pre-K, Elementary, Middle, High, and Early College schools. A review process was performed to move incorrect existing school points to new correct locations. Not all points were able to be individually reviewed,and may represent approximate school locations. This update was a collaborative effort among the Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, Institute for Transportation Research and Education, and NC Department of Public Instruction. Current school data was provided by NC DPI, using the Educational Directory and Demographical Information Exchange (EDDIE), found at http://apps.schools.nc.gov/eddie. ITRE used this dataset to conduct the update process, which included all steps of GIS analysis listed above. CGIA consulted on processing steps, lineage, and quality control to prepare the dataset for the NC OneMap Geospatial Portal.
Purpose: This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).
Supplemental Information: The description for the 2008 published datasets was as follows. CGIA developed this set of point locations for public schools in North Carolina as part of a project for the NC Division of Emergency Management. School data serves multiple purposes, but foremost for this project, public schools are vital facilities in terms of emergency management. Many schools serve as shelters and all are critical to hazard vulnerability planning and emergency response. CGIA used two methods to generate point locations for public schools. First, CGIA used a road network from GDT, Inc. with ArcView GIS to geocode the addresses. The initial process matched 60 percent of the schools with a point on the road network. Point locations are approximate, based on an interpolation of street numbers along street segments. Second, CGIA worked with the NC Department of Public Instruction to use the Transportation Information Management System (TIMS) to determine school locations. Many of these pointlocations are coincident with the center of school buildings on digital imagery or along driveways and may be more accurate than points located using the first method. Revisions and updates to this layer include: 9) filename: Public_Schools_NC Regular update. August 06, 2012. 8) filename: schlpl1208 Regular update. December 29, 2008. 7) filename: schlpl1107 Regular update. November 27, 2007. 6) filename: schlpl1206 Regular update. December 28, 2006. 5) filename: schlpl1104 Regular update. November 11, 2004. 4) filename: schlpl504 The 5/17/04 update: Points (from west to east) were verified/corrected using a backcover of the 1998 Color Infrared Orthophotography images. (Reviewed points will have a '1' in the reviewed item. Points that were moved willhave a 'yes' in the ptmoved item.) 3) filename: schlpl404 The 4/20/04 update: The following public school point locations were corrected:NORTHSIDE ELEMENTARY, PASQUOTANK CO HIGH. Correct locations were found on the greatschools.net website. 2) filename: schlpl703 Regular update. July 3, 2003. 1) filename: schlpl701 The 07/12/01 version was the first released version of this data.
