Park Co. needs an accurate count of our children to meet the needs for more schools, educational resources, free lunches and Head Start Funding.
Communities Need Accurate Count of Children to Meet Need for More Schools, Educational Resources. Results from the 2020 Census are important to school districts across the country – whether fast-growing or not – because they provide a baseline for the next 10 years of school planning.
School districts use the numbers to ensure there are enough buildings and classrooms for children as they move through the school system. Plus, results from the 2020 Census will be used by federal, state and local officials to inform decisions on how to spend billions of dollars in federal funds on education programs like Head Start for pre-K children, free- or reduced-priced school lunches for low-income children and teacher training programs.
It’s not too late to respond to the 2020 Census online at 2020census.gov, by phone at 844-330-2020, or by returning the paper questionnaire you received in the mail. By early August, census takers are set to begin visiting households that have not yet responded to the census to help ensure everyone is counted, including children. The deadline to respond is Oct. 31.
