Census Memo

posted Jun 27, 2014, 11:54 AM by Dar Bales   [ updated Jun 27, 2014, 11:56 AM ]

To all school district 17 families

Annually the Nebraska Department of Education requires all districts to do a census of families with children within the District.  

This information is used to determine the state and federal funding of education.  

All information is confidential and falls under the confidentiality agreements of the state and federal government. The only information that is transmitted to the state government is the summary data – not individual data. Example:  58 5 year olds.  The district holds this data under security in case there is an audit or questions are raised by the state or federal government.

A representative of District 17 may be contacting you over the next 8 days.  The information they will be requesting is:

  1. Names of the children from birth through age 21 that are living in the household as of June 30, 2014 even if the child isn’t going to school INSIDE the district.  

  2. Birth date of the children from birth through age 21 that are living in the district even if the child isn’t going to school INSIDE the district.

  3. City & State where the child was born.

  4. Physical address not just PO Box.

  5. Clarification on spelling or birthdate of record.

To avoid disruption of your day we are making every attempt to contact individuals by phone and where possible to leave a message so that you can call back at your convenience.  You also may be contact at your home and be requested to provide this information.  

If you have not been contacted and would like to cooperate please call 402-878-2224 identify that you are providing information for the district survey and ask for Elaine or Romi or Kay.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this manner.
