Table of planning units below populations is refreshed when changes are made. If you have boundaries you like, don't forget to

You can change the number of students going to an option school at the bottom of the page. Type a number between 0 and 1 where 0 means that no students are going to an option school,
and 1 means that all students are going to an option school.
You can choose which schools are option schools at the bottom of the page. Any school that was a neighborhood school that becomes an option school will have all of its

APS Fall 2018 Elementary School Boundary Process - Planning Unit Data Table - Revised October 2018
All default numbers for the option schools are estimated by ArlingtonStats.com. These may differ from actual values.
We assume that each 18 pre-schoolers displace one 24-person kindergarten classroom; hence, capacity declines by 6 for every 18 pre-school students.
Demographic data for certain types may be censored by APS. Any values between one and nine for
english learning, economically disadvantaged, or disabled student are ArlingtonStats.com estimated values and may differ significantly from the actual APS values.
All demographic data and projections are *not* allocated to option schools, option school populations are *only* only calculated for total school enrollment statistics.
Numbers with a * are estimated.
The Google map markers and polygons may not be rendered perfectly accurately or precisely, please consult county sources for official information.
