A project to explain DC's hyperlocal Advisory Neighborhood Commission system by pulling information scattered across the web into one place. ANCs make decisions that shape neighborhoods, but reliable information about them is hard to find. We aim to change that.

Choosing a school in DC can be confusing and we hope to support family decisions with data. We recognize that the "right" school for your children can be evaluated not just by standardized test scores, but by teacher turnover, parent involvement, special programming, community and more.
