A "shapefile" is actually a set of several files.

Four individual files are mandatory to store the core data that comprise a shapefile: .shp, .shx, .dbf, and .prj.

Zip all shapefile components into one zip: You can send up to 3 zip files individually if you have the boundaries separated by school level.

The size of the zip file must be smaller than 300 MB.
