Save these Dates!

  • Reminder-Don't forget to fill out the 2020 Census.

    The 2020 Census determines the distribution of both federal and state aid to education for the next 10 years. Inaccuracies in the census data can result in critical losses of education aid, at a time when the money is needed most.

    Do our part to help get an accurate count! It takes about 5 minutes to complete.

    MCSBA members can find "Talking Points" on the 2020 Census in the resource section of the members only tab.
