PHARR – Thirty-seven parents in Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD were recognized by the City of Pharr during a U.S. Census Ambassador Ceremony held Friday, Jan. 10, 2020 at the Pharr Research & Development Center for their dedication to promoting the U.S. Census this Spring. 

The parents, who attend the free classes offered through the PSJA Parental Engagement Program, completed a U.S. Census training in the fall of 2020. Honorees received certificates and gifts from the City of Pharr for their efforts. 

As a 2020 U.S. Census Partner, PSJA ISD has been collaborating with the City of Pharr and Hidalgo County to promote the census to the tri-city community.  

As part of the Census Ambassador Ceremony held Friday, Jan. 10, 2020 by the City of Pharr, over 35 parents took an oath to be US Census Ambassadors this Spring 2020.

“We are very proud of our parents for taking the lead in being US Census Ambassadors for our community,” said PSJA Superintendent Dr. Jorge L. Arredondo. “We want to make sure every member of our PSJA Family is counted during the 2020 Census so that we can improve our district, community, and the Valley.” 

According to the U.S. Census website, the U.S. Constitution mandates that a census of the population be conducted every 10 years. Census statistics are used to determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and inform how state, local and federal lawmakers will allocate billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities every year for the next 10 years.  

By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, individuals will be able to respond to their home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail.

“It’s really important for our community to be counted. The funding for infrastructure, health, education impacts our cities, our roads, and our school district,” said del Angel. “Thank you to everyone for recognizing our efforts.”
