Developer Platform

School Closings API

Be the first to know when your school is closed in Philly

Imagine you're a child waking up in the morning on a snow day. Someone, somewhere will unevitably ask 'is school closed?' I created a platform for local students and developers to know when school is closed.

Here's how it works:

The closings API aims to is cetralize data about school & government closings and provides it in a format that developers & consumers can use.

Raw Data

Real-time raw data is collected from a list of hand-crafted sources, including official sites and news websites.

Data Sources->
Developer Endpoint

My service processes that raw data into a usable JSON/XML format that lists school closings.

API Documentation->
Consumer App

The community can build things like apps, websties, text alerts, or even games on top of that processed data.
