HPS student data, geocoded and aggregated by neighborhood residence

Rating: 3

Description

In addition to the prior suggestion of aggregating student data by school-grade level, it would be helpful to provide the data by neighborhood of residence, since the growth of school choice means that students do not necessarily attend the school closest to their homes. One solution would be for the City to geocode HPS student data by residence, then aggregate that (through a spatial join) into the Hartford neighborhood areas, with the standard set of student demographics, achievement, grade level, and possibly school name. The result would look something like this:
Neighborhood A, grade 1 data, grade 2, etc.
