Emily S Teams/Efforts
  • Education
  • Identify metrics that measure/indicate successful education
  • Gentrification
  • Identify metrics that measure/indicate gentrification
  • Gentrification related to turnover
  • Data Sets
  • Information/Studies
  • Maps
  • Perhaps some correlations (not causation)
Charter vs non-charter
Need data over time
Gentrification results in younger population (do they plan to stay in the neighborhood or leaving and not using the schools once they have kids)
Ethan S Potential Datasets:
Adam E Neighborhood cluster demographic data:
Neal H Finding addresses in DC: (Master Address Respository, XML API) http://octo.dc.gov/node/715602
Richard C An example of a gentrification study in SF at the census tract level:
  • Dataset (maybe we try to obtain the same sets for DC?): 
Jermaine R Potential Datasets: 
School Enrollments
Neal H
  • Consolidated enrollment data on GitHub
Neal H
  • Idea: this enrollment data has grade-by-grade enrollment. We could use this as a proxy for pass/fail data (i.e. assume people stick to the same school, and the percent of 10th / 9th grade enrollment = pass rate. 
Jermaine R School Locations (for mapping)
Richard C School locations 
Neal H
  • School attendance zones (for cross-referencing to property): 
  • Notes: looks like zones are changing, and these are the new zones
Adam E
  • Graduation rates (adjusted cohort graduation rate 
Jermaine R
  • Separate data set (XLS) for enrollment and budgets for each DCPS school (from 2012-2016)
Neal H Federal Gov Ed Data portal: http://datainventory.ed.gov/ (searching to see if anything usable)
