We provide an axiomatic characterization of an income segregation index in school districts. One axiom requires that single-school districts be the least segregated of all districts. A second axiom requires that any reorganization of a subdistrict that raises its segregation, raises the districtwide segregation as well. A third axiom requires an intuitive decomposition by subdistricts into within-district and between-district terms.
