Superintendent joins 2020 Census kickoff announcement

ALBANY, N.Y. (May 1, 2019) -- City School District of Albany Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams joined Mayor Kathy Sheehan and other community partners May 1 to highlight the importance of the upcoming 2020 Census for the entire Albany community.

 

Mayor Sheehan is leading the city’s 2020 Complete Count Committee, which also includes representation from the school district, Albany Public Library and a wide range of community organizations and leaders. The committee will work tirelessly over the next 16 months to communicate the importance of the 2020 Census to residents and help alleviate concerns surrounding the process, especially to those communities that are historically hard-to-reach and often undercounted.

 

Albany currently has about 98,000 residents. Cities with more than 100,000 residents qualify for additional levels of funding and services that would be a great benefit to the city and all of its residents, Sheehan said. The mayor is confident that accurately counting all of the city's residents in 2020 will reflect a population greater than 100,000, and a community-wide education and outreach effort will be crticial to achieving that.

 

“The City School District of Albany is glad to be a partner in this important process for our entire community,” Adams said. “We are committed to ensuring that all of our students and families are educated about the census and what it means in terms of resources and opportunities for our community over the next decade. 

 

“We also are committed to doing our part to make sure all of our families are comfortable with this process and know that this information will be collected and used in a safe, responsible manner.”

 

For more information about the event and the 2020 Census, including job opportunities, please visit the City of Albany website. More information specifically about job opportunities related to the 2020 Census is available at the USAJOBS website.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to educate and prepare all students for college and career, citizenship and life, in partnership with our diverse community. The district serves approximately 9,400 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
