For the 2020 Census, LACOE implemented outreach and education activities for the K-12 sector initially supporting 38 LA County school districts and nine (9) LACOE authorized charter schools that received pass-through funding from the State’s investment. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools in Los Angeles County had to close their physical doors in the middle of March of 2020. Recognizing the extreme changes in circumstances for our districts and charter schools, we shifted our Census outreach efforts and guided them in the process to readjust strategies. This page serves as an archive to the activities and resources used during this huge civic engagement effort.
