US 2020 Census in red letters


Its not too late to complete the 2020 Census.

Did you know that completing the Census helps fund our schools?

Results of the 2020 census will help fund Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), which is working to make sure everyone is counted, especially children.

The census drives decisions on the annual allocation of more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities. 

Federal dollars for schools are allocated based on the number of people and poverty levels in each school district, and includes support for programs and services such as these: 

  • Title 1 school resources
  • Free and reduced-price lunch 
  • Head Start
  • Special education
  • Teacher training 
  • Classroom technology
  • Class size reduction 
  • After-school programs
