The census is important. It helps determine federal dollars for education, health care, highways and other resources.

Pinellas County Schools receives federal funding for breakfast and lunch programs, after-school programs, special education, and the Head Start preschool program. We also receive funding to support students who are learning English and students who are experiencing poverty or homelessness.

Federal funds help ensure that all children have access to a well-rounded education.
