Descriptive nameSchool Attendance Areas
File nameschatbnd
Spatial domainPima County
Abstractschatband is the school attendance boundary for public schools within Pima County. If a charter school is offered by a public school district than that attendance boundary is included as well. The record displays the school name, address, phone number, website, the grade levels offered at that school, and its school district.
Tucson Unified School District has annexed attendance boundaries listed in schatbnd. All the information for the annex is the same as the school to which it is offering additional attendance boundaries. However, the annexed spatial data is different than the school it represents.
There are areas of Pima County that do not have school districts and hence no attendance boundaries (unorganized areas). Private and (most) charter schools are not included in schatbnd because they do not have attendance boundaries.
There are also overlapping attendance boundaries within each school district. This is because a grade school attendance boundary will overlap with a middle school and high school attendance boundary. Schools with open enrollment are not included since they do not have attendance boundaries.
