DME’s EdScape Beta FAQ’s
What is EdScape Beta?
EdScape Beta, short for “education landscape,” provides information critical to making decisions about whether, where, and what type of public schools, school facilities, and school programs are needed in Washington, DC. This new set of information from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) is intended for policymakers, school leaders, and the public. This information will support data transparency and building a coherent public education system.
What is the format of EdScape Beta?
EdScape Beta is organized by individual chapters with interactive Tableau dashboards that allow visitors to dig into the information and analyze it by grade band (elementary, middle, high, or adult/alternative), area of the city (ward or neighborhood cluster), or by sector (DCPS or public charter). Each of the dashboards also has downloadable Excel data file that can be used with other software. Each chapter also includes a PDF document that summarizes the information for ease of use.
Who will use EdScape Beta?
DCPS, the DC Public Charter School Board (DC PCSB), school leaders, and District agencies will rely on this to decide on the opening and siting of schools and programs. Advocacy groups will be interested in this and will use the information for their own analyses. This is not intended for the “everyday” parent making school enrollment decisions.
