Responding to the 2020 Census is very important!  Census data are responsible for allocating billions of federal funds for important federal programs.

For the North Hanover Township School District,  this means federal funding for school meal programs, special education programs, our Focused Intervention Team (FIT), professional learning experiences for teachers and staff, some after-school & summer programs, as well as for programming that supports our economically disadvantaged students and our English Language Learners.  This funding is critical for our district as we work to ensure that all children are able to meet our state’s challenging academic standards and have a well-rounded education.

You may respond to the 2020 Census:

  1. Online at https://nj.gov/state/census,

  2. Over the phone in 12 different languages; English: 844-330-2020, Spanish:844-468-2020.

    • If you do not respond online or over the phone, then a Census worker will visit your home.
    • If you do not want a Census worker to visit your home, then please respond online or over the phone as soon as possible.
  • The census is simple, confidential and safe to complete. The U.S. Census should take less than 10 minutes to complete and they will never share your personal information with other government agencies. All data collected through the census is protected under Title 13 of the U.S. Code.The penalty for wrongful disclosure is up to five years imprisonment and/or a fine of $250,000.

     

  • Your identity remains anonymous. Any personal information you provide on the census form is protected by law and cannot be shared with anyone or any other federal agency. Regardless of your immigration status, the information cannot be used against you or to invade the privacy of you or any members of your family.
