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:
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
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.
