comment API for Address -> School District Lookup?
Definitely true for Google's Geocoding service. However, I didn't see the same restriction on their Places API. Instead, it seems to require that you place an official "Powered by Google" type attribution on the page. I'll re-review this, of course, before proceeding. SmartyStreets (or another service) might also be an option for me. Hint: it would be a sure-fire deal if you could include the School District in the results :)

comment API for Address -> School District Lookup?
This is the only approach I could find as well. I'm getting geocoding results from Google Maps, so I can compare the lat-lng to the polygons defined in the Census Bureau shapefiles. PostGIS seems a bit heavy for my needs, so I'm just gonna build a couple custom DB tables to store the info.

comment Django Custom Field: Only run to_python() on values from DB?
Turns out this was actually the only solution I could find. Disappointed there's not a better way to do this.

comment Django Custom Field: Only run to_python() on values from DB?
Yeah, that occurred to me as well...I was hoping for a cleaner solution. I'm pretty new to Django in general, and specifically this is my first time using a custom field, so my assumption was that either I'm missing something in the declaration of my custom field, or that there's a completely different, more appropriate way to meet my needs.
