Exploring the Home-Based School Plans
Last week BPS released three proposals for potential new student assignment plans. The 10 zone plan looks very much like the current plan, but with more zones. It's fairly easy to look at the map and understand which schools you could choose from if this plan were chosen.
The other two plans are more complex. To help people see what schools would be available to them, and to be able to explore them myself, I created a tool that allows you to enter an address and see what schools would be available under the two home-based plans. In addition, you can double-click on any point on the map to see what schools would be available to someone living at that location.
Try it out and let me know what you find in the comments. Do you like your choices more or less than what's available now? What address has access to schools particularly far from home? How about only schools close to home? The most or the fewest schools?
