What is EdScape?

EdScape, 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 new on EdScape?

As of April 2022, EdScape incorporates SY21-22 information. Many visualizations now include the option to toggle among different geographic views including the new 2022 ward boundaries and the Comprehensive Plan planning areas. Read more about the geographic updates here. In addition, some visualizations now have the option to toggle school points on maps. Back in December 2019, EdScape newly incorporated school quality in the Public SchoolsPublic School Facilities, and Enrollment Patterns chapters. Learn more about recent updates to EdScape on the Release Notes page

Who will use EdScape?

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.
