Census.gov usually makes available the shapefiles containing school district boundaries. Due to the US government shutdown, census.gov is down. Does anyone know where to download a recently archived copy?
2) paste that url into the "wayback machine"
3) choose the most recent blue circle that's pre-shutdown
Note: the Census' FTP server will not save in the Wayback Machine; In very recent past, the team behind the Wayback Machine had started bypassing US .gov server restrictions in order to preserve sites/data, but for reasons unknown, Wayback is still blocked by Census FTP.
