Digging deeper, I found a District Summary from December 2012. Focusing on elementary schools’ free and reduced lunch rates, and converting this data into a .csv, I used d3.js and borrowed heavily from this example to plot it all on a map.
I’m still working on getting the tooltip to display the school name and free and reduced lunch percentage – so if you know how to achieve that, let me know. Eventually, I aim to create a catalog of all the data locked up in the .pdfs to be easily navigated through dropdown selections, say of 3rd grade achievement scores, and displayed neatly on a map.
This ties in with an after-school tutoring program I hope to launch this fall in collaboration with Rotary and Rotaract clubs around the area. It will run twice a week at Sand Point Elementary’s library. If interested in that, also let me know! The Sand Point Squirrels will thank you.
