Project Schools and Arts Partners

In the process of preparing a database and map of NYC Public Schools and their external arts organization partners, we helped identify and address missing data on the Open Data Portal. The data was improved, including “the top four” arts organization partners for each school, rather than only one. At four partners, the Department Of Education said the data on the Open Data Portal is at capacity, though some schools have as many as 10-20 partners as per their individual school reports (PDFs).
