New Interactive Map Provides Legislators with School Information

New Interactive Map Provides Legislators with School Information

The Comptroller’s Offices of Research and Education Accountability (OREA) has created two new interactive maps featuring a wide range of education data at the school and school district levels.

The maps illustrate the House of Representatives and Senate legislative districts overlaid with school district and school level information. The legislative profile maps are both clickable and searchable. A user can search by legislator, school district, and school name.

The maps include demographic information, accountability and performance, and financial data. Some specific data points include the number and type of schools (e.g., traditional, charter, etc), school designation, average ACT score, per-pupil expenditure by average daily membership, and average classroom teacher salary.

 

The maps can be found here.

“These maps offer a simple and unique way for General Assembly members to learn more about the schools in their districts,” Comptroller Justin P. Wilson said. “This interactive map is also useful to any Tennessean who wishes to learn more about public education achievement and spending in our state.”

In addition to the release of the legislative profiles maps, OREA has updated its Higher Education Attainment map, and Mapping Tennessee Education page.
