2020 Census - Everyone Counts!


In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail.


Why should I participate in the 2020 Census?


Federal funding for schools. The decennial census affects the federal funding that schools receive for special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, school lunch assistance, and more. It also affects billions in funding for other community services.


Community impact. The census has a major impact on your school and your community. This is your chance, as a parent and community member to shape the future of our students and their families.
