Participate in the 2020 Census to Ensure our Children Have a Voice
At the Tuesday, November 19, 2019 Board of Education Meeting the Conejo Valley Unified School District Board of Education adopted Resolution #19/20-13, which recognizes the importance of the 2020 U.S. Census and supports helping to ensure a complete, fair, and accurate count of all Californians.
Census Day is April 1, 2020. Did you know that a big way our community gets money for child and family programs is by participating in the U.S. Census. The state and federal government uses census information to fund programs like child care, free and low-cost school lunches, and Medi-Cal. Responding to the Census helps communities get the funding they need and helps businesses make data-driven decisions that grow the economy. Census data impact our daily lives, informing important decisions about funding for health care, senior centers, jobs, political representation, roads, schools, and businesses. California receives more than $115 billion every year based on census data. It is estimated about one million kids under age 5 in the United States were not counted in the last census. Everyone must be counted in the census so that these valuable resources aren't lost.
