    march 2020: how the census impacts our schools

    Your participation in the upcoming 2020 census is vital for our community to claim our fair share of federal and state resources. To give you an example of how the census directly impacts our schools,  a kindergartener counted in the 2020 Census will be starting high school when the next census comes around in 2030. That student will benefit from 10 years of funding teachers, school lunches and modernized school facilities—all due to being counted in the census. This is your opportunity to participate in building brighter futures for Lawndale students! 

    At our schools we will be teaching our students key facts about the 2020 Census through school wide activities, and we want you to know them too: 

    • It’s easier than ever to respond to the census. You can respond in 13 different languages, and you can complete it online, by phone, or by mail. You will receive an invitation to participate in the week of March 12-20. The invitation will look like this:

    • Everyone living in your home needs to be counted. That includes children and newborn babies, citizens and noncitizens, relatives and non-relatives, and even those staying with you temporarily.

    • Your responses to the census are safe and secure. The law requires the U.S. Census Bureau to keep your information confidential, and your responses cannot be used against you in any way.

    • Census data guides how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year for schools, health care facilities, roads, transportation, recreation centers, social services, and more. 

    You have the power to shape your future, and the future of all students, by counting everyone in your home in the 2020 Census. Lawndale counts!

    April 1st is recognized as Census Day. We invite you to come to the District Office on that day as we will have laptops available for you to complete the census. Bring the invitation you will be receiving in the mail beginning March 12th from the U.S. Census Bureau. Look for more information as we approach April 1st!
