Census Workers Urgently Needed! $20-$22 Per Hour
The census is very important to Pacific Elementary, as well as to the community as a whole. An accurate count could result in tens of thousands of dollars in annual funding that we don't currently receive. There are many reasons that people don't participate in the census, but many of those reasons can be mitigated by a census worker who is known in the community and trusted by the people who might otherwise avoid participating. If you or someone you know would like to help with the census, please see this information: English or Spanish
