Census School District Review Program

BACKGROUND

The School District Review Program (SDRP) is a National Center for Education Statistics sponsored program conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau every two years. It is of vital importance for the state's allocation under Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Public Law (P.L.) 107-110. The updated school district boundary information submitted through this program, along with the Census population and income data and current population estimates are used in forming the Census Bureau's estimates of the number of children aged 5 through 17 in low-income families for each school district. These estimates are the basis of the Title I allocation for each school district in the state. The information on this site reflects the school district names, Federal Local Education Agency (LEA) identification (ID) numbers and boundaries updated during the 2011-2012 SDRP.

PURPOSE OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT REVIEW PROGRAM

The purpose of the 2013-2014 SDRP is for officials to review the Census Bureau's school district information and to provide updates and corrections to the school district names and boundaries. As a result of required decennial census updates, updates to military boundaries may have occurred within the state since the last survey. If your school district is adjacent to these areas, please review them carefully to ensure the school district boundaries are correct.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

Review your school district boundaries using the U.S. Census Bureau's website at http://tigerweb.geo.census.gov/tigerweb/.  If you have any questions or need to report a change, please send an email to geo@doe.state.nj.us. All changes must be reported to the New Jersey Department of Education by November 15, 2013 so that we may meet the U.S. Census Bureau deadline for accepting changes.
