Help Us Be Counted in the 2020 Census!

The U.S. Constitution requires that every person living in the United States is counted every 10 years for the purpose of ensuring fair representation and distribution of resources. ISBE is doing its part by making sure that schools recognize their important role in this process.

Today we are reaching out for your help in printing and distributing a 2020 Census flyer to families. (The flyer is also available in Spanish.) Please consider sharing this important reminder so everyone can be counted. Including a copy of the flyer with grab-n-go meals is a great way to help us be seen in Illinois!

Please also consider using these draft social media posts:

• Improve our future! The #2020Census can help Illinois get funding for stronger schools, better hospitals, and crucial social services. Fill out the Census and #MakeILCount

• Fill out the #2020Census to help our community get the funding we need for a brighter future. #MakeILCount

More information and resources on how to ensure a complete count are available at

Thank you for all you’re doing for Illinois schoolchildren!
