Since 2003, Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit organization, has surveyed more than five million students, teachers, administrators, parents, and community members seeking their unfiltered input on education, technology, schools of the future, science and math instruction, professional development and career exploration. Each spring, the organization creates national reports on the U.S. survey data and releases them in a series of Congressional Briefings in Washington DC and through numerous conference presentations, webinars and meetings with federal agencies, state education agencies, associations, organizations, research groups, think-tanks, business groups, and policy organizations throughout the year. Additionally, every participating school and district receives free access to their own local Speak Up aggregated data reports (which includes all of the survey questions and their own respondents’ data totals) along with the national data totals to use for benchmarking. 
Southern Columbia will be participating in Project Tomorrow's 2017 Digital Learning Project and your participation is strongly encouraged. Doing so will entail completing a 20-minute, confidential survey. The survey will be open through January 19, 2018 with links to it placed in the Quick Links and Special Features sections of this website (found at the bottom of the page). If you're ready to get started now, you can do so by clicking this link.
