McKay School sets up Census Questionnaire Assistance Center in East Boston

The McKay School in East Boston is undertaking a community education and awareness project regarding the 2010 US Census.

In order to help the community fill out the Census form, The McKay School has partnered with the 2010 Census Staff of Boston to host a Questionnaire Assistance Center at the school, where families and residents can come with questions and receive help from trained census professionals or receive extra forms in other languages.

All information related to the Census will remain entirely confidential, regardless of citizenship, residency, or other documentation. The Questionnaire Assistance Center that the McKay is hosting is one piece of an education project directed at all students, K-8, about what the Census is and the benefits that increased representation has for their community.
