The final races to determine the 2021 membership of the State Senate and Assembly have been resolved. Here is our updated crosswalk of school districts and the legislators who represent them.
It is an Excel spreadsheet with two tabs, one for the Assembly, one for the Senate. School districts are listed in alphabetical order. The information is derived from a state legislative source.
The tables show the percentage of the school district’s 2010 Census population contained within the legislative district.
The State Constitution generally provides that towns may not be divided between Assembly or Senate districts unless the town has a population greater than that required for a single Senate or Assembly district. Following the last reapportionment, the average Assemblymember represented 129,187 people and the average Senator represented 312,550 people.
Consequently, if your school district serves any part of a town with population below those figures--even vacant land--a legislator representing that town will show up as representing part of your school district. But the percentages can be very small—some are below 0.1%.
When we prepare tables for legislators using this data, we usually omit any school district which for which the legislator is shown to represent less than 10% of the school district population.
Each page also includes a link to certified 2020 election results for that chamber and a link to find contact information for each legislator.
