This census has additional challenges related to adequate funding, reduced staffing, limited testing, and delayed communication plans.

Your school can play a critical role in helping all stakeholders in your community understand the importance of an accurate count and how to navigate the new technology being used in the process. Walk away with free inquiry-based lesson plans that you can use across the curriculum to empower your students to take informed action to support your community to register an accurate count. Get YOUR questions answered about the Census 2020 and how to navigate difficult questions your students, staff, and parents may have concerning participation.
