Students in the Towanda Area School District will be participating in a research study by the Regional Education Laboratory(REL). The purpose of the study is to measure and describe how connected students feel to school and learning. There are no right or wrong answers, and all responses are completely confidential. All students in grades 6-12 will take part in a 15 minute survey during the homeroom period. The compiled results will be given to the district to use for planning future instructional and course options for students.
