Kings County Office of Education
Todd Barlow, County Superintendent of Schools
In Memory of Mike Robinson
Over Memorial Day weekend, Kings County lost a pillar of our community when Mike Robinson passed away. Not only does he leave behind a legacy of service that is an example for us all, but his dedication, commitment and generosity will reverberate with the many lives he affected. We were lucky to know him and he will be dearly missed.
As a Kings County School Board member since 2014, Mike was a champion for all students, especially in the areas of literacy, special education and career education. His desire to ensure every student’s success lead to the inception of the Evidenced Based Literacy Initiative (EBLI) that is present in many of our schools today. As we continue the to work to provide for our students and our schools, we are comforted to know that his legacy will endure.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

California Census 2020
Q. Why do we take the census?
A. The U.S. Constitution mandates a headcount every 10 years of everyone residing in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas of the United States. This includes people of all ages, races, ethnic groups, citizens, and noncitizens. The first census was conducted in 1790 and one has been conducted every 10 years since then.
The population totals from the census determinie the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives. States also use the totals to redraw their legislative and school districts. The next census occurs in 2020.
