Did you know that the census will be conducted in 2020? The 2020 Census is more than a count. It's an opportunity—to get involved and to help shape the future of your community. Everyone counts!
Every 10 years, the census counts everyone living in the United States. It is important to count every person living in your home to make sure your community and others across the nation are accurately funded and represented for the next decade.
The 2020 Census matters for our local schools. The count impacts the federal funds that communities receive each year for programs and services that are critical for schools, students, and younger children, such as: - Special education, Head Start, after-school programs and classroom technology; - Food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches; - Maternal and child health programs.
