Users can now select four different geographies - Comprehensive Plan planning areas, neighborhood cluster, and ward (2012 or 2022 boundaries) - to view where students identified as "at risk of academic failure" (the definition used for funding purposes) live. By planning areas, the Far Southeast and Southwest area has the greatest number of students identified as at risk followed next by the Far Northeast and Southeast area. As a share of public school students living within the planning areas, the Far Southeast and Southwest area, the Central Washington area, and the Far Northeast and Southeast area have the greatest shares of the public school students identified as at risk (between 72% and 62%).
At the neighborhood cluster level, the greatest number of students identified as at risk live in Congress Heights (Cluster 39), Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant (Cluster 2), and Brightwood Park and Crestwood (Cluster 18). Neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River have greater than average proportions of at risk students as a share of all public school students, as well as neighborhoods such as Chinatown and Penn Quarter (Cluster 8), Southwest Waterfront (Cluster 9), and Ivy City and Trinidad (Cluster 23).
