American Education Week is Nov. 18-22

posted Nov 18, 2019, 3:35 PM by Anthony Sandstrom

from Superintendent Charlotte Macaluso

This week, Nov. 18-22, is American Education Week, a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about the need to provide every child in the United States with a quality public education. 

Public education is the backbone of our democracy. Public schools, and District 60 schools in particular, are the foundations of our neighborhoods and the keepers of our community’s traditions. District 60 employees, no matter if they’re a teacher, custodian, bus driver, support personnel, food service professional, skilled trade worker, health and student service worker, security guard, technical employee or librarian, work tirelessly every single day to serve our students and our community to the very best of their ability.

However, some may not know their passion for our kids and our communities. That’s what American Education Week is all about.

In keeping with the spirit of American Education Week, if you know an educator, ask them questions. Ask an educator about their greatest accomplishment in education. Ask them why they devote their time and talent to make a difference in the lives of others. 

And most importantly, use American Education Week as a reminder to thank an educator for the effort and work they put forth each and every day, and that you appreciate the work they do!

District 60 partners with U.S. Census Bureau

Pueblo County is better when everybody counts, and Pueblo School District 60 has partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census count in Pueblo County.

As a partner, we will be working to ensure that Pueblo County is accurately counted and represented, with a goal of reaching residents with important and helpful information about the Census. We will reach out to our families, including our students from mixed or transient families. 

If Pueblo County does not get an accurate count of its citizens, our county can lose out on many vital services.

What does an accurate Census count mean for Pueblo County?
  • It affects our representation in state government and the U.S. Congress. It ensures that Pueblo County has a voice at the table
  • The Census affects Pueblo's allocation of federal and state resources for vital public and educational programs, such as:
    • Medicaid and Medicare
    • Pueblo's share of highway planning and construction funds
    • Housing vouchers
    • Colorado Children’s Health Insurance programs
    • Head Start and Early Head Start programs
    • Special education grants (IDEA)
    • Title 1 Grants
    • School lunch programs
    • Housing assistance payments
    • Health center programs
    • Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women
    • Infants and Children (WIC)
    • Foster care
    • Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LEAP)
    • Child Care and Development Fund Entitlement.
How can you help?
  • Respond to the Census request for information: Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail. This will mark the first time that you will be able to respond to the census online. Do your part by taking part in the count. It's your duty as a U.S. Citizen.
  • Tell your friends and family to take partExplain how being counted or the Census affects the funding received in Pueblo County. Participating in the Census is a simple and easy way for people to positively affect Pueblo County.
  • Work for the 2020 Census as Census takerTo assure that Pueblo County receives an accurate count, you can apply for jobs as a Census-taker. Positions pay an average of $16/hour. For more information, visit https://2020census.gov/en/jobs.
