Census Information

Census Day is April 1, 2020- What is Sheridan Doing?


The census is a count of all people living in the United States and takes place every 10 years. It is simple and confidential to complete. For the first time, you can respond online. You will receive a unique identifying number in the mail, which will allow you to fill out the online form beginning in March 2020. It will ask questions about your household such as how many people reside in your home, date of birth, race, and sex. Here are some things you should know: 

Your identity remains anonymous. Any personal information you provide on the census form is protected by law and cannot be shared with anyone or any other federal agency. Regardless of your immigration status, the information cannot be used against you or to invade the privacy of you or any members of your family.

The census is important. The census is important because it helps to decide how much federal money our schools will get over the next 10 years. For Sheridan School District, this means federal funding for school nutrition programs and supports for students with special needs, students who come from poverty, and emerging bilinguals.

What do Sheridan families need to do? The Census Bureau is collecting census forms in four ways: online using the internet or a cell phone, over the telephone, by calling the census call center listed on the census card, using a paper form, or by responding to a census worker. Census forms are available in 13 different languages.
