The data behind

All of the data that powers comes from the websites of the Chicago Public Schools, the Illinois State Board of Education, or the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute. It’s often challenging to find education data. When you do, it can be in easy-to-use formats such as spreadsheets or must be input manually from PDFs or images.

It took the SchoolCuts team many hours pull the data together; to spare others the work, we are posting it in a Google spreadsheet at

We used Fusion Tables, Excel, and old-fashioned hand input to compile the data, so if you notice any errors or discrepancies (or if you have any questions) please let us know.
