Pennsylvania Keystone Exams will be administered to Towanda Junior/Senior High School students during the month of May. The Keystone Exams are end-of course assessments designed to evaluate proficiency in academic content areas. Beginning with the class of 2019, students must demonstrate proficiency on the Algebra 1, Literature, and Biology Keystone Exams to graduate. Students will be offered multiple opportunities to take the Keystones throughout their high school careers. Students who scored Basic or Below Basic on any subject tested during a previous Keystone Exam Administration will be included in this test administration.
Memories of this year will last a lifetime if you purchase this beautifully crafted 2016 Aerial Edition yearbook before Friday, May 6th. Every so often, the school district will get aerial photos taken of the district. This year was one of those years. This photo of the high school and surrounding district and town was chosen by our staff to be on the cover. The picture starts with the high school on the back, and wraps around the cover to the front.
The Towanda Area School District Board of Education will meet for a Regular Session for general purposes on Monday, April 18, 2016, at 7:00 PM in the Board Room of the Towanda Elementary School.
