School District web feature shows schools’ catchment areas

    For those looking to move, looking for a new school or just curious, the School District of Philadelphia has added a feature to its website that shows schools’ catchment areas.
    The concept is simple: Enter an address into the School Finder tool and see the neighborhood schools. It’s an improvement on the old practice of going to schools’ individual profile pages to look up their locations.As The Notebook‘s Erika Owens points out, catchment areas will change, but those adjustments can be updated in the School Finder tool.
