For the first time, Virginia residents can complete the Virginia School Census online. The census is conducted every three years to count every child under age 19. The state-mandated census helps to determine the fair distribution of Virginia sales tax revenues, which fund educational initiatives. The census also helps with projections for city and county growth, future school enrollment, and subsequent funding requirements. All Virginia residents should complete the census, whether or not they have school-age children. Census forms are being mailed today and may be returned by mail or completed online.
