2020 Census Information:  Make it Count!
It is extremely important that all members of our community participate in the 2020 Census.  Information from the Census helps local governments, businesses, school districts, and communities make important decisions regarding government programs, schools, hospitals, homes, and so much more.  As noted on, "The  2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade."  Please be sure to respond to the Census and encourage others to do so also, so that everyone in our community is counted.  Click here to learn how to respond to the 2020 Census.  To learn more about the importance of the 2020 census, click here and check out this video from the U.S. Census Bureau

Strategic Planning
Strategic Planning is an integral step in school districts' efforts towards continuous improvement. Somerset Hills School District invites parents, staff, students, and members of our community to help recraft and review the district's current Strategic Plan at the following sessions:.
  • Tuesday, March 24 - 6 pm in BHS Media Center (snow date Thursday, March 26)
  • Wednesday, April 15 - 6 pm in BHS Media Center
We hope that you will participate in either or both of these evenings, and we look forward to hearing your ideas.
