Local Education Agency (School District) Locale Code Files

These files includes geocoding information for public local education agencies (LEA's) reported on the annual Common Core of Data LEA Universe Survey. The information in each record includes the NCES LEA identification number, the name of the LEA, the city and state where the LEA offices are located, and two locale codes, if applicable. Locale code is a measure of an LEA's location relative to populous areas, and is a composite of the school locale codes, weighted by school population, associated with the schools in the LEA's jurisdiction. The new urban-centric locale categories, introduced in these files, serve the same purpose as the metro-centric categories, but are defined by a combination of their population and their distance from an urban area.  There are a total of twelve urban-centric categories, organized in a two level hierarchy; the four categories of the upper level (city, suburban, town, rural) are each divided into three subcategories.
