  1. Who creates these maps? What’s the criteria for the area boundary lines – population density, H.S. attendance areas, or ethnic populations?

    • There are a variety of criteria. The areas must be continguous, roughly equal in population and should follow easily understood landmarks, such as major highways or other landmarks. Also, they should not disadvantage any ethnic group.
