Billions of dollars in federal funding and the number of representatives California gets in Congress are at stake in the 2020 United States Census. This effort to count everyone in the US happens just once every ten years, so it’s critical it’s done right. That’s why the Ventura County Office of Education is encouraging local educators to be actively involved in raising awareness about the census and encouraging everyone to participate. As trusted members of the community, educators have a key role to play. Please explore the tools below for ways that your district, school or class can get involved. Thank you for helping to make sure that Ventura County Counts!
