Google Maps: NY School Districts

These lines are from 2010, they do not include the combined Illion-Mohawk Central School Districts now known as Central Valley School District.

School districts are special districts in New York State that generally do not follow municipal or county lines. The exception is cities, which generally have city school districts whose boundaries follow municipal lines.

While I tried to give each district a unique color, occasionally the same color appears twice in bordering shapes. Zoom in to examine the white borders. These lines are based on the 2010 census, and should be fairly accurate down to the house level, but ultimately, that's something that is determined on the tax rolls and not the census maps.
