GIS Data for California Public Schools

California School Campus Database (CSCD) offers a GIS dataset that contains all of the public school locations from K-12 grades for California.  The data is mapped to the parcel level and is offered as a download without restriction.  The dataset improves on the publicly available data from the California Department of Education (CDE) which offers a geocoded point location only.  The GIS data from CSCD is both point and polygon-based which provides additional information about the area of different school campuses.  In addition, the data from CDE has been corrected for spatial inaccuracies by CSCD.  The data is made available by the GreenInfo Network.

The data is available as a geodatabase which can be loaded into ArcGIS and QGIS (drag and drop the geodatabase folder into your map view).  Contained within the geodatabase are school location centroids, and polygons for public K-12, community colleges, and public universities.  The data can also be viewed online through either ArcGIS Online service or MapCollaborator.
