SIS Week: Everyone Counts!

Component ID: #ti446189455

March 2-6, 2020

Component ID: #ti535282405

Join the movement to make sure every child is counted in the 2020 Census by taking part in Statistics in Schools Week: Everyone Counts! This weeklong series of fun classroom activities is provided by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools (SIS) program to educate students about the importance of the once-a-decade count.

As a key part of this week, we are asking every teacher in the country to distribute the SIS take-home flyer to every student in their school on the final day of SIS Week, March 6. This flyer, available in English and 12 additional languages, explains to adults the importance of the 2020 Census and how to count every child in their home.
