Census is Live!!
The Census is here! Please take a few moments to complete your census reporting on all people that live (even temporarily) in your home. This information is crucial to Chawanakee Unified as it is the basis for our state funding throughout the district. We strive to serve all community members in the best way possible, by completing the 2020 Census you are helping us do that. You can complete the census via online, phone, or by completing the paper forms and mailing them in. 

The invitation includes information on how to fill out the Census form and will include a unique Census ID linked to a physical address. All Californians will be able to respond online or by phone, with limited households initially receiving the paper form. We encourage you to use your Census ID to fill out the form, but it isn’t necessary to be counted. Every Californian can now respond to the Census online at https://my2020census.gov/ and by phone by calling the numbers available below.
