Be a leader.  Promote the Statistics in Schools (SIS) program and educate your community about the importance of counting all children in the 2020 Census. As  a parent or caregiver,  you also can teach the children in your own home about the importance of the census by using the SIS activities and resources with them. Your efforts today will impact schools, students, and communities for the next 10 years.

Share Resources

Send information to students' homes that explains how and why to complete the 2020 Census and count all children, including newborns and children who live in complex households. Complex households are those that include extended families, multiple families, children whose parents are not living in the home, and children who do not live in the home all of the time. If your school is participating in remote learning, incorporate 2020 SIS activities and resources into lessons or send SIS activities directly to parents and caregivers to use with the children in their home.

Use Partner and Ambassador Tools

Help spread the word! If you are an SIS partner or ambassador, be sure to make use of all the materials the U.S. Census Bureau is providing to help you promote the SIS program and the 2020 Census. If your organization is not yet an SIS partner, there is still time to sign up.

Support the Count of Young Children

Newborn babies and young children under 5 are often missed in the decennial census, with consequences that can impact their lives for the next 10 years. When children are missed in the count, it often is because of complex living situations, such as when one or more parents are not present in the home or when the child only lives in the home some of the time. Learn how, as an educator, parent, or caregiver, you can help these children be counted.
