Thanks for the positive feedback! I'm still working out a few kinks in this -- such as what to do about inaccurate location data in the Cal. school directory database -- and more than glad to hear suggestions for improvements.

Do you feel like averaging the last 3 API ranks (and requiring valid ranks for at least 2 of the last 3 years) is statistically valid?

Thanks,
Kevin

is it bad that i see areas half red half blue and have to stop and remind myself that google maps are not coded by gang color? i would love to see this done for chicago schools, except i fear that the whole map would be red.

tmao, long time no talk. how's things?

If we did divide schools along Norte and Sur lines, who would achieve more? I'm guessing Nortes, only becuase they seem to have a firmer grounding in the English.

Katie! Things go well in that strange way of how the hell did I end up doing all of this way. Are you ruining the curve for everyone else?
