Shape the future for our children. Start here.
The 2020 Census is fast approaching. As an educator or education supporter, you are always striving to do your part to create a brighter future for children. There are many ways you do that, and in 2020 there is one big way you can help: Support efforts to make sure EVERY child is counted in the 2020 Census, because you know that every child is a part of our community.
This nationwide count happens every 10 years. When the children are not counted, important decisions are affected, such as how much money to spend on services and programs that help children.
Responses from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to communities across the country to support these vital programs and more.
How You Can Help
As school leaders, you are trusted by your students, staff, community members, and families, and you have a direct line of communication with them. You can get the word out about the importance of their participation in the 2020 Census and the benefits of an accurate count.
