The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) sponsors the School District Review Program (SDRP), enabling the U.S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau) to create poverty and population estimates by school district geography. The poverty and population estimates produced by the Census Bureau are of vital importance for each state’s allocation under Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) as amended (Public Law 114-95).
The enclosed 2019 SDRP materials include the SDRP Quick Start Guide, the Geographic Update Partnership Software (GUPS) disc, the Annotation Files disc that contains digital copies of the respondent guide, school district inventory listings, submission log, and school district boundary shapefiles. For select states, included is a list of school districts coextensive with legal areas such as counties, cities, towns, and townships. The Readme.txt file included on the Annotation Files data disc contains a complete listing of the aforementioned materials.
Please review the provided materials and update the following information, if necessary:
Census Bureau school district boundaries;
School district names;
Federal Local Education Agency codes;
Grade ranges for allocating children if two school districts occupy the same area;
Counties in which school districts are located; and
where school districts are coextensive with other legal areas
such as counties, cities, towns, and townships.
The Census Bureau requests that the school district information you submit reflect the 2019 school districts, as they will exist on January 1, 2019. The deadline for submitting updates to the Census Bureau is December 31, 2018.
If you have any questions about the SDRP, please contact Mr. Ian Millett, Mr. Matthew Nordhagen, or Ms. Lauren Kirsch at the Census Bureau by telephone at 301-763-1099 or by email at [email protected].
