AppGeo has been helping school districts meet the challenge of balancing student populations and school capacity for more than a decade. Here, we highlight redistricting projects for four different school districts in Massachusetts: Plymouth, Shrewsbury, Wellesley, and Lexington.
Town of Plymouth Public Schools
The Plymouth Public School District (Plymouth, MA) has seen a decline in enrollment in the last 10 years. Meanwhile there have been significant demographic changes in the town and multiple housing developments are expected to come online with the potential to create imbalances in the enrollment.
The goals of the project are to use demographic data and spatial analysis to develop and use district projections in creating redistricting scenarios with the ultimate goal of creating sustainable district-wide enrollment balances.
