Calling all Colorado educators: Apply to be a Statistics in Schools Ambassador and promote an accurate census in your community
The 2020 Census will help determine federal funding and political representation for Colorado communities for the next decade. If you’re a Colorado educator, the Census Bureau needs your help to make sure that every Colorado child is counted in the census next year.
The U.S. Census Bureau is seeking pre-K through 12th grade teachers to serve as ambassadors for the Statistics in Schools program during the 2019-2020 school year. The Statistics in Schools (SIS) program provides free data, tools and activities that educators can incorporate into their lessons to teach students about the importance of the 2020 Census count and empower them to share this knowledge with adults in their homes. The activities are tailored to different grade levels and can be used across a variety of subjects.
Statistics in Schools Ambassadors will receive instructional content, support, networking opportunities, promotional items and more so that they can promote the SIS program and 2020 Census among their schools and communities.
