2020 Census: It’s more than just a count, it’s an opportunity to shape the next generation.
Every 10 years, the Constitution requires that all residing in the U.S. be counted. The 2020 Census counts the population in the United States and five U.S. territories and it is particularly important for school districts. The 2020 Census will inform funding for educational programs that benefit our children, such as special education, after-school activities and school meal programs. Each home received an invitation in March to respond to a short questionnaire online (new!), by phone, or by mail. The information you receive has a special Census ID number to use when you respond and "Count Day" is officially April 1, but you can complete it today. All responses to Census Bureau surveys and censuses are confidential and protected under Title 13 of the U.S. Code. Under this law, the Census Bureau is required to keep respondent information confidential.
Be sure to take the time to fill out the questionnaire - so everyone in the WSD counts! For more information, visit 2020census.gov.
