School Attendance Area Boundaries, Minnesota, SY2023-2024

This file represents the boundaries of all public school attendance areas in the state of Minnesota for school year 2023-2024. Attendance areas attempt to represent the detailed breakdowns that determine where students attend elementary, middle, and high schools. These areas are unique to each public school system. The "dissolved" school district boundaries, without attendance area breakdowns, are available in a separate resource. For many districts that operate only a few schools, attendance area breakdowns are not used or defined.<br/><br/>Each year Minnesota public school systems are asked to report any changes to their elementary, middle and high school attendance area boundaries. This file was developed from this annual information. Users should be aware that reporting compliance is not mandatory, so the information included is only as accurate as provided by those local education authorities (LEAs). Actual decisions on where students attend which schools is entirely decided by the LEAs, not by MDE, and frequently changes are not reported to MDE.<br/><br/>Please also see accuracy notes in the school district boundary dataset, which also apply to this layer.

dsPurpose To keep this dataset current, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) asks school districts for any changes to district attendance boundaries on a yearly basis. This information, along with additional information, is used by MDE's Food and Nutrition Services Office to identify program financial priorities. It also provides a map of school attendance area boundaries and school district boundaries to support a variety of mapping and data analysis applications.
