A Message about the 2020 Census
As our nation, city and School District work to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that a complete and accurate 2020 Census is more important than ever. Promoting a complete census is now part of our advocacy strategy to ensure the District receives all funding and financial assistance available in order to ensure that Philadelphia students and communities get what they need to thrive.The results will determine funding for many critical programs and supports like special education, school meals, and health and housing assistance. It will take all of us to ensure that every Philadelphian is counted in 2020!
