Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

While working the Pittsburgh PA area, I came a across at the follow collect: Mount Alvernia Day Care Center. I looked on the internet and it supports ages 6 month to 12 years for After School, Before School, Before and After School, Daytime.

I thought that I read somewhere that only K-12 were collected. I checked the Structure File and it stated K-12. I'm confused because this is a USGS. Should this be collected and if not, can it be deleted?

Collection guideline change from time to time and the guidelines for pre-schools changed in August 2015:

The current status is preschool features that have been verified do not need to be deleted. Preschool features that have been deleted do not need to be rectified at this point in time, as the school data will be updated and the preschool data will be more complete.

My suggestion is to spend your time on schools other than preschools at this time. Thanks.

We are no longer collecting preschools, day care centers, or kindergartens. If you come across one of these features in the map, feel free to delete it. Check out our Structures List for more information on the types of schools we are collecting: https://navigator.er.usgs.gov/help/WebHelp/structure_def_table.pdf

I'm still confused. After reviewing the structure list, it still looks like Kindergartens should be collected. It specifically stated DOES NOT INCLUDE: Preschools or childcare facilities, but it stated to collect K-12. Can USGS please confirm.

Regarding kindergartens: if it is a school that is just kindergarten and under, it should not be collected. The only time a kindergarten should be collected is if it is part of a K-12 or an elementary school, but kindergartens should not be collected as separate features.

If you added any separate kindergartens and you want to go back and delete those, feel free to do so, otherwise they will probably get cleaned up as the structures team works through the review queue. Just to be clear, if you collected ABC Elementary School, and it contains kindergarten, that point should have been collected. However if you collected ABC Kindergarten, and it just contains kindergarten and maybe preschool, then that point should not have been collected.
