This year’s Census is critical to our community and especially our school community, as the Census data will determine how billions of dollars in federal taxes are distributed among the states. In GCS alone, this equates to nearly $59 million dollars of federal funding. The census is required by the US Constitution, to determine how many representatives each state should have in Congress. NC is expected to gain a 14th congressional seat based on the 2020 census.
