Every 10 years, the Census records everyone living in the United States of America. The data informs funding for services such as education, health care and emergency services. It also determines each state’s representation in Congress.
Counting everyone in the 2020 Census is not an easy task and children are frequently among the most undercounted population. Your responses to the 2020 Census determine how much in federal funds are allocated to our school districts and students for the next 10 years.
Support for public school services and programs is just one of many reasons why an accurate 2020 Census count is crucial to our school district and our region.
Respond to the Census
You can complete the Census questionnaire online, by mail or over the phone. It is safe and private. The questionnaire is short and only asks for basic information (e.g., age, sex, race, type of housing, etc.) for all people living in your household. It does not ask for sensitive information like social security numbers, immigration status or bank account information.
