“To renew enthusiasm among Kansas communities, US Census planning a collaborative statewide push to engage Kansans in a “Call for the Count” week. Call for the Count” is very basic and built on the notion of a phone tree. And it’s easily done from the comfort of your home. This can be a call, a text, an email, or outreach via your favorite social media platforms! How does it work? – Ask at least five co-workers, friends, neighbors or family members to fill out their Census form. And then ask those who agree to call five of their friends and family members. And so on. The concept is in keeping with the idea trusted voices will be the ones to convince others — especially those hard-to reach -- to fill out the Census

That puts the entire country over 60% for self-responding to the Census, a key milestone reached during extraordinarily challenging times. And yay for Kansas! Our state remains in the upper tier for self-response to the Census with a 64.2% rate. (2020 Census response rate map) Here's how the state's four congressional districts compare: - 1st Congressional District - 59.7% - 2nd Congressional District - 63.7% - 3rd Congressional District - 69.7% - 4th Congressional District - 63.9% Impact in Your Community School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for schools, firefighters and families in need. Census results affect your community every day. Here's a powerful link -- Shaping Your Future -- for posting on social media and forwarding via email. This 2020Census.gov page provides a clear picture of how funding based on population counts shapes many critical aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location.

Hi everyone, Mrs. Ptacek here! One thing that I've really been working on is getting a website set up for the Lincoln Elementary School Counseling Program. I'm excited to say that the website is now officially up and running! I made a short little video walkthrough on how to get to the website through our USD 298 website (www.usd298.com), where it will always be available, but I will put the direct link for the LES counseling website here as well. This website has all the information about our LES school counseling program, various resources for parents/home, resources/information regarding Covid-19 and virtual school counseling, AND my contact information. I especially recommend checking out the contact tab on the site if you have any questions or concerns for me at this time- I'm happy to help! My goal is to update this site as frequently as I can in order to provide relevant information and resources not only about the LES counseling program, but also about events happening in the world that can have a direct impact on school counseling.

Accurate information will benefit our Lincoln USD #298 community in many ways. The KSDE Fact Sheet shares some of the programs that bring in Dollars to Kansas and ultimately to USD #298 from the census. This information is utilized for 10 years of special funding. That is the main reason to get accurate data about our school community.
