Kindergarten Lottery information for 2011

What is this?
I was curious about how the Champaign Unit 4 School District assigned students via the "Controlled Choice" program. So I started asking questions; questions that started with "how does it work?" and led to me getting curious about the technical details of how Dr. Alves of Enrolledu takes registration information and smashes all the logistics into a program that churns out assignments. When I asked for the low-level detail, my request became a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act), and eventually a comprehensive spreadsheet was delivered to me. This website is a front-end to view the the data from that spreadsheet, which is now housed in a database.

So what do I do now?
Click on the buttons to the left! *grin*
You can view the data that I think best answers the given the question. If you want to pose another question (ie, query), please let me know and I'll add it. Also note that you can get a synopsis/explanation of the question and related data by clicking on the [?] near the question.

Changes in 2011
Several changes were evident in this year's data. When I say "tab" below, I am referring to the individual worksheets of the spreadsheet I received. They also correspond to the tables in the online database.

How do I download the spreadsheet?
You have a couple different options.

Disclaimers and apologies
I am a database person, not a web-designer. I tried to make this look nice, but realize it has a long way to go before it could even be considered half-way decent to look at. Also, I am not affiliated with Unit 4 at all, so take this data with a huge grain of salt; by no means should this data be considered authoritative. But if you do end up filing your FOIA and compare the data to what you see here, I would lay bets they would be strikingly similiar. *smile*

For the curious, technical information is also available.
Big shout out for Gordy Hulten, who provided the server-space for this site.
