Public Service Announcements

The SIS program is supported by partners who see the value of bringing real-life census data into the classroom. You can help spread the word about this unique program by sharing our public service announcements with educators and students' family members. In these PSAs, our partners talk about the ways in which SIS enhances learning and teaches skills that students need to succeed in a data-driven world.
