Continuing with her Storytime Online initiative to promote the love of literacy, School Board Member Dr. Stacy Hahn will be reading a story live every weekday at 11am on her Facebook page.

Hillsborough County Public Schools has teamed up with the U.S. Census Bureau to make sure EVERYONE is counted.

Based on data gathered by the census, $675 billion in U.S. govt. funds is distributed among states and communities. That money is crucial for our schools.

In a few weeks, you’ll be receiving a postcard in the mail. That postcard is your invitation to take the census. Once you receive that invitation, you can respond online, by phone or by email.
