Mandatory Census for Kansas Students

Students at Johnson County Community College recieved a friendly reminder/warning via e-mail today: Fill out the state census or this will be your last semester at JCCC — at least this academic  year.

The college will not allow students to drop fall 2009 courses or to enroll in spring 2010 courses until they complete and return the state census form.

State law mandates that all students attending public and private colleges and universities complete the census.

“Every public or private university and college shall obtain from all enrolled students census information upon forms provided by the secretary of state,” the law reads.

The purpose of the census is to collect information for redistricting as noted in K.S.A. 11-301 – Census Data For Legislative And Congressional Redistricting.

The e-mail message sent to JCCC students:

The state of Kansas is requiring all students to complete a census form for the 2010 state census. You will not be able to enroll for spring 2010 or add/drop fall 2009 classes at JCCC until the ‘2010 Census Adjustment’ form is completed and returned. Continue reading
