    About the Census

    Every 10 years, people across the U.S. and in California fill out the Census in order to have an accurate count of all the people in the United States. 

    The Census determines California’s federal funding for important community services that support students and families and ensure our community's  representation in California and Washington DC.

    Your response matters!

    Let’s ensure all PUSD students are counted so we can put those resources to good use here at home!  


Ensuring a Complete Count

  • On December 12, 2019, the Pasadena Unified School District Board of Education approved Resolution No. 2540, "Ensuring a Complete Count of Pasadena Unified School District Students, Families, and Communities in the 2020 Census."  Below, you will find the full text of the resolution.

    PUSD is partnering with the City of Pasadena’s Complete Count Committee and the L.A. County Office of Education to promote awareness about the Census.
