This is a map of Allegheny County School Districts. There are 11,892 school districts in this county and most of them have a school within a mile or so.
Allegheny County School Districts are some of the largest and most significant school districts in all of Pennsylvania. While the districts range in size from one to over 100,000 students, over half of the district’s students are in an area that is at least one mile away from its district’s borders.
This map is one of the very first things we showed people before the whole site went live. It’s a great resource for checking if your school district is in our map, how your district is, or how other school districts are.
Allegheny County School District is one of the largest school districts in Pennsylvania. While it is certainly not the only one, it is by far the most diverse. The district encompasses 14 counties, including Pittsburgh and the surrounding suburbs. It is home to a large number of college students, high school students, and adults working in the region’s professional and technical fields. For over 100 years, Allegheny County has served as an “educational powerhouse”.
There are multiple locations in Allegheny County where students can take advantage of the Allegheny Community Schools program administered by the Allegheny County Public Schools Commission. The Allegheny County Board of Supervisors is responsible for managing all of Allegheny County’s public schools and is overseen by County Superintendent Steve Cress. Allegheny County is known for its large number of charter schools, the school district includes more than one million students, and it’s all about education.
Allegheny County is the perfect place to take control of your county schools, but as a rule of thumb, you can’t really control all of them. I’ll put two people down for the first time in my book, and I’m not going to spoil the rest of this chapter for you.
I was lucky enough to attend the 2009-2010 school year in Allegheny County, and I was on the faculty. I teach a “teacher in a box” course, and the classroom is based on a series of modules in which students try to teach themselves to be better teachers. The module is “The Art of Giving Lectures,” and in it students learn how to make lectures more effective, how to change lectures into seminars, and how to use various techniques.
The module is part of a larger project called Allegheny County Teacher, and it’s a fascinating one. The module is part of a series of experiments in which students and teachers create an “allegheny county school district map.” The map is a collection of the students’ ideas about how the district should be run.
I feel like the map is a good example of the type of idea that teachers can make to change how a district looks and functions. The map’s purpose is to change the districts, not the districts themselves, which is a good thing. This is a fantastic example of how teachers can use the map to inform and shape the district they want to be in.
I’m a big fan of the map, and the concept of using the map as a tool to change how a district looks and functions also holds a lot of appeal to me. But I think it’s important to keep those ideas separate because there can be a lot of confusion when trying to design districts without a map.
