March 1, 2010 | 2 min reading time

 

St. Louis—Mayor Francis G. Slay joins U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert M. Groves and Congressman William Lacy Clay to launch the 2010 Census in Schools program for Missouri at Gateway Math & Science Elementary School in St. Louis. The program, “2010 Census: It’s about Us,” gives schools a wide range of free, optional, standards-based lesson plans on subjects related to the census, ranging from math to social studies. The program is designed for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and will reach all 118,000 schools and 56 million students nationwide.

 

By offering schools lesson plans related to the upcoming census, the Census Bureau hopes that students talk to their parents about these lessons, reminding them about the importance of filling out and sending in the Census form which will come to homes the week of March 15, 2010.
