Information gathered in the census shall include for each child the name and address of the parents/guardians, name and location of the school in which the child could be or is enrolled or belongs; name and address of any employer of a child under eighteen (18); child's name, date of birth, age, gender, nationality, and address; and other information the Board may legally request to assist in the efficient and equitable operation of the district.
When planning to enlarge or modify its facilities, the Board shall consider not only the number of students whose educational needs must be met, but also the physical requirements of the programs it deems best suited to meet those needs.
