Students Learn about the Upcoming Census
According to www.census.gov, the 2020 Census is a count of everyone who lives in the United States and its territories. Most of the counting will start in mid-March. The 2020 Census questionnaire asks a few simple questions like the age, sex, and the number of people living in your home.
People should count all children who live in their homes, including newborns and others too young for school.
That’s important because responses to the census help schools plan for the resources they will need when the new generation of children is ready for school.
You can respond online, by phone or by mail. Individual responses are confidential and cannot be used against you by any court or government agency.
Some of the federal funding based on census statistics is for services that influence students’ readiness for learning, including maternal and child health programs, and housing, heating and food assistance.
When it comes to schools, the 2020 Census will determine funding for special education, teacher training, technology, school lunch assistance, Head Start and after-school programs.
Northgate students spent time looking at examples of the census form, watching videos about what the census is and why it is important to accurately complete a census form, and examining how the census relates to geographical regions.
We hope that everyone will complete the 2020 Census and #BeCounted.
