Maps are fun!

Back from my sick bed, today I spent the better part of the day creating an interactive map (click and slide) that contains the complete listing of Westside public elementary schools. This list includes neighborhood schools in the LA Unified District, along with Magnets, Charters, Santa Monica and Culver City Unified elementary schools.

Each school has it's own marker bubble which when clicked on contains updated address, phone and website info (hand entered by me), and sometimes a photo already on file with Google. With almost 60 elementary schools and 3 overlapping school districts within about a 10 mile radius, no wonder parents are confused! These are only the elementary schools, folks!

Today I have done my civic duty for all current and future Westside families about to enter the school system. I have created our very own Westside School Finder. (Lord knows the district doesn't do anything like this for us.) It's even Google-able.

Check it out!
Scroll down the right side bar below speaking events and click to enlarge and play!

Or you could go here.
(Give it a minute to l0ad.)

Aren't maps fun!

You are SOOO cool. There you go again. You make yourself so useful by participating with care. You care and then you follow it through with action. No small thing.

Maps are so much fun. I love maps! Seriously.

I spent a lot of time wondering if I should be concerned about school districts when I bought my house. And I don't even have kids yet.

Amazing, T. You are amazing.

This is one hell of a way to "be the change you wish to see in the world."
