Pillars of Excellence strategic planning
The board approved the retirement request Sheila Brzeski, a first-grade teacher at Horizon Elementary School, effective at the end of the school year. She has served the Plymouth School District for 28 years.
The board also learned of the following support staff changes:
The board accepted a payment of $8,175 from the PHS booster clubs and athletic teams to defray the costs of constructing the concession and restroom facilities near the football/track area and the soccer/softball fields.
Nine years ago, the board agreed to pay off the remaining $84,000 for the facilities, with the understanding that the booster groups would pay the money back over 10 years. This ninth installment left a balance of $200. Athletic director Gale Grahn then donated $100 from his family and $100 in memory of former athletic director Mike Slagle, fulfilling an agreement the two of them made nine years ago to cover the final $200 themselves.
The board also gratefully accepted the following donations:
The board approved a travel request from Jason Sebranek, Plymouth High School band director, to take students to Orlando, Fla., from Nov. 16 to 22 to perform in a parade at Walt Disney World. Expenses will be the responsibility of the students and their families.
The board had the first reading of a revised policy 0130 By-Laws (Functions), which better explains the functions of a school board.
