Bring the Census to Your Students

Although originally created for use in the classroom, SIS resources also are easily adaptable for use at home to teach students new skills and show the importance of responding to the 2020 Census. Because SIS materials are all available online, they can be downloaded and sent directly to students and their parents or other caregivers at home. You also can direct parents and other caregivers to our page for teaching children at home.

When you share these resources, remind students and the adults in their homes about the importance of the 2020 Census in shaping their future. The 2020 Census has begun, so it's especially important to underscore this message now.

Why the 2020 Census Matters for Your School

The results of the 2020 Census will inform decisions about allocating hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding to communities across the country. That includes funding and support for school programs and services such as:

  • Special education
  • Free and reduced-price lunch
  • Classroom technology
  • Teacher training
  • After-school programs
  • Head Start

This federal funding also supports services that influence a student's readiness for learning, such as maternal and child health programs, as well as housing, heating, and food assistance.
