2020 Census

Why 2020 Matters for Schools

The 2020 Census is fast approaching! Every 10 years, the U.S. government conducts a count of every living person within its borders. An accurate census helps our district  receive  federal funds that support our schools and our students. Your responses are kept confidential and are used only for statistical purposes. 

The Public Schools of Robeson County encourages all staff and parents to complete the census, which can be done by mail, by phone or online. Households will begin receiving information in March  and must respond by May 1. 

The decisions made as a result of the census will affect not only funding for schools, but also for roads, hospitals, fire departments and other infrastructure. Help us ensure that Robeson County is fairly represented.
