U.S. CENSUS 2020
We cannot emphasize enough just how
important it is for each and everyone to be counted in this year's census. This is an official count of the amount of people living in the United States. The information gathered is used to
determine how some government funds and programs are provided to various cities. This information is used over a period of ten years. That means, if the number of people is underreported, we
will have to live for the next ten years with less governmental supports, all because people chose not to participate.
• It is
important that you check your registration and update it, if necessary. This can be checked online easily.
• Request your Mail
In Ballot NOW. Make a plan on how and when to return the completed ballot EARLY. This is not something that you can procrastinate about, because it's too important.
• It may be wise to
return your ballot to the Board of Elections and not rely on the US Postal Service.
• If you are choosing
to vote in person, you can use the website above to find the location of your Polling Place.
Our young people are now engaged in
virtual or a hybrid version of learning. It is critical that they receive all of the support that they need to be successful under these "new normal" circumstances. Some suggestions are listed
• Set up their learning station in an area with limited distractions.
• They should not be able to view the television during lesson time.
