Pennsylvania Right-to-Know

As of January 1, 2009, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, under Governor Edward G. Rendell, requires government agencies, including school districts, to comply with the new regulations as set forth by the Right-to-Know Law Act 3 of 2008. The new law fundamentally changes the way people access public records of their government, and the way government processes those requests. The Towanda School District always works to comply with its Public Records Policy and the Right-to-Know Law. To obtain public records from the Towanda Area School District, please download the form to the right and fill it out in its entirety. Mail the form to the RTK Officer listed to the right. We will work to honor your requests as set forth under the law.

File a Request Form
The Right-to-Know Law requires the Office of Open Records to create a Uniform Request Form that must be accepted by all Commonwealth Agencies. To request information, under the Right-to-Know Law, from the Towanda School District, you must download the following PA Standard Right-to-Know Request Form.

Contact Information
The Right-to-Know Law requires that each government agency appoint a RTK (Right-to-Know) Officer. The Right-To-Know Officer will be the assigned person to receive Right-to-Know requests submitted to the Towanda Area School District; direct requests to the appropriate persons within the district or to the appropriate person in another agency; track the District’s progress in responding to requests; and to issue interim and final responses under the act.
