  •  2020 Census is coming in a few months!

    In fact, there are 166 days until the April 1, 2020 census!

    The United States Census is taken every 10 years! That's right.  The last time the census was taken was 2010. So the 2020 census is important to Chester County for the next 10 years!
    The census is easy, private and important to all of us in Chester County!
    Why is this important to our schools to get everyone counted in the 2020 census?
    First, it is beneficial to us for applying for grants.  Grants are FREE money!  Most Federal grants are judged by the latest census data, so the more we count people who live in Chester County, the more we can qualify for grants for our students!
    Next, it provides means for getting county and school district money from the Federal government!  Did you know that for every person counted in the census, the county receives $1,500 per year.  That's $15,000 per year for every person over the ten years of the census. 
    The census is private!  When you respond to the census, your answers are kept anonymous. They are used only to produce statistics.  The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to protect your answers and keep them strictly confidential. Your private information is never published and your answers cannot be used against you by any government agency or court. 
    The census is easy!  The 2020 census can be completed from a tablet, a smart phone or computer.  You can also complete this with a pen and paper! 
    It's important to count all of our children during the 2020 census.  It helps families with young children and especially those families  we serve in the school district.

    By the way, the 2020 Census team needs your help!  You can apply for a temporary job with the census.  Just follow this link to apply!
    If you want to know more about the census, the reasons behind it and how you can help, just follow this link!
    Thanks in advance for helping us get a complete count for the 2020 census for Chester County residents!
    Be counted!



Important Announcements

  • Chester Water District is working on repairing the water main break. After discussion with water officials and other district/community advisors, Chester County School District will operate on a normal schedule tomorrow, Wednesday, November 13, 2019. All after-school activities, including athletic practices and events, will continue their regular schedule tomorrow.

    Chester County remains on a boil water advisory, and precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of our students and staff. All district-wide drinking fountains will be closed and covered. Food services will follow boil water protocols as provided by DHEC for any water used in food preparation.

    We encourage students to bring a sealed bottle of water to school for drinking and a bottle of sanitizer if they have one. Schools will have bottles of water available if needed as well as sanitizer. All restrooms will be operational.

    Please continue to follow our website, Facebook page and Twitter for any other updates.

    Have a good afternoon.

  • We were notified earlier this evening of an emergency water main break in a main line in central Chester County that occurred earlier today. This has caused the Chester County Water System to issue a "boil water mandate" until further notice.

    This will affect service to our Chester County residents and schools tonight and tomorrow. There will be an impact to food preparation, hand-washing and drinking water.

    For the safety of our students and staff, we will close schools for Tuesday, November 12, 2019. Please continue to watch our website, Twitter and Facebook pages for further information and updates about re-opening of schools.

    Thank you for your patience as we work with our county agencies during this emergency issue.
