You can set your email to the principal email. Send yourself a survey. Fill it out.
We will be using that sample school as a demo in our meeting next Tuesday at 9am….
Sarah, Colin, and Jeremy also had a productive meeting with DPS this week. Here are the notes:
We will be at the meeting of school principals next week to demo the project and ask for everyone to fill out the survey.
Added a new graph for the ACS Gross Rent Percent Household Income
** The graphs were pretty cluttered
** Experimented with line, bar, stacked bar
** Experimented with rolling some of the data up
** Was pretty easy for Ron to manipulate the data and show visualizations locally
Worked with Sarah to bring her up to speed on the project and bounced ideas around with her to see if we could come up with a good way to show the data
Sarah had a great question - "What story do we want to tell?"
Need to be able to have others run the site locally
Need to deploy the site hosted externally
Need get a good grasp on the visualizations we want
