Strategic School Profiles
On-line information on all schools and districts in the state of Connecticut. Currently available on CD-ROM and on-line in PDF format, the goal of the Department of Education is to have an on-line GIS mapping of the information. The department will be releasing the past five years of data in May 1998. The information on the CD-ROM can be accessed in database format to incorporate into GIS mapping software. Indiana has K-12 school data available on-line to interact with. A model the Connecticut Department of Education is currently looking at.
