The 2020 Census has been extended until October 31, 2020 for self response, which gives Mississippi residents  several months to still respond.

Superintendents are encouraged to continue to push parents/guardians to complete their Census online at www.my2020census.gov, by phone at 1-844-330-2020, or by completing the questionnaire that was mailed to their homes.  As districts are registering students, please incorporate a Census message within the packets or online.
