districts (approximately 17,000). The Public School and District locators allow
the user to retrieve information on public schools and districts from CCD's
databases. Data include address information and basic information on students,

The 2000 edition presents an updated taxonomy of instructional program
classifications and descriptions. CIP 2000 is now available on the web in a
searchable, downloadable data base. The data base permits a full-text search of
the CIP and contains all of the tables in the CIP publication including the
crosswalk table between the 1990 CIP and the CIP:2000. These tables can be down
