National Census Day

April 1 is National Census Day! What does that have to do with education? Why is it important to schools? Census data is the foundation for the allocation of billions of dollars in federal education aid to qualifying schools. Accurate census data is the key to schools getting the funding they need to be able to serve every child who walks through their doors.

During the month of March, students will be learning about the census. To learn more about what your child will be engaging in please watch this US Census YouTube video.
