LiveBy Schools API offers detailed information about schools in a geographical area.

There are 3 kinds of school data that can be provided:

  • Assigned schools are schools that someone at the residence, or lives inside the provided LiveBy boundary could attend. Usually, these are the schools that a public bus would service.
  • Non-assigned public schools are free public schools that someone could attend if they could get transportation for the student to use. These are also often called open enroll schools.
  • Private schools are schools a student must pay for in order to attend. Because private schools do not have attendance boundaries, LiveBy returns private schools within a distance to the provided geometry. If that geometry is a coordinate, you may control this distance. If the geometry is a LiveBy boundary, the distance is controlled by LiveBy.
