2014-2015 Statewide School Districts for Texas. This information was collected from all 253 county central appraisal districts and from the Texas Education Agency. GIS staff of the Texas Legislative Council created the school district boundaries using the 2010 TIGER/Line Shapefile as base geography and made further corrections to match the school district boundary updates and name changes for the 2014-2015 School Year. These changes include lines that are not census geography. Changes to school district boundaries may include one or all of the following types: school district annexations or de-annexations; school district consolidations, deletions or additions; boundary corrections to the Texas Legislative Council database; boundary adjustments due to more spatially accurate data involving land parcels and survey data received from a county central appraisal district.
Note: The 2014-2015 School Year school districts in the council's geographic file are not the same as the districts in the Census Bureau's 2010 TIGER/Line Shapefile. The population data for the council's 2014-2015 school districts does not correspond with the population data reported for the school districts reported by the Census Bureau. Modified by TEA to reflect the merger of La Marque ISD into Texas City ISD effective 01-JUL-2016. Maintenance of this data will normally consist of just uploading a new copy that you obtained from TLC. However, should it ever be necessary to make changes to the data yourself, I *strongly* suggest you download it, modify the downloaded copy, then use the "Overwrite" button to the right to upload your changes and over-write the entire dataset. While it is possible to edit the data using ArcGIS for desktop directly from this feature service, the process is clumsy since you cannot see all of the features at once. Even worse--once you do that, the data cannot be subsequently over-written. The data ends up being enabled for disconnected editing, which AGOL does to prevent you from stepping on someone else's potential offline edits. You then have to drop and re-publish the feature service, which means you have to then correct the URLs in the public open data site, and make sure the SDL map application can still find the data. So, in practice it turns out to be way more trouble than it is worth to directly edit via the desktop.
