Census 2020: Make Sure California’s School-Aged Children Are Counted
“Federal funding supports programs like special education, before- and after-school programs, and school nutrition programs. California receives more than $7 billion in federal aid to support our schools, and this is especially important for closing opportunity gaps at schools with a high percentage of low-income children and schools with special education programs…
California’s schools play an important part in ensuring that every Californian is counted. This year, we ask that parents, educators, and administrators participate in census outreach. Schools are also encouraged to coordinate with community-based outreach efforts by inviting speakers from local Complete Count Committees, hosting joint informational forums, and staying connected with state-funded Census Complete Count Regional Program Managers. Find regional outreach efforts at the California Census 2020 website at https://census.ca.gov/regions/.”
