Our Announcements

Youth Truth Logo
Lorain City Schools is partnering with YouthTruth to hear what our scholars have to say about their school experience.
What is it?
The YouthTruth Student Survey is a nationally recognized survey used in hundreds of schools and districts across the country, surveying hundreds of thousands of students. YouthTruth is based on the simple but powerful premise that when you get timely feedback from those you’re trying to serve, and really listen to that feedback to make changes, you get better. Scholars will take the survey at their school between November 25-December 6.
