The Plymouth School District is undergoing a thoughtful evaluation of its facilities, and is engaging community members to get their input on potential initiatives.

“Our facilities have served this community well for many decades, and we have done an excellent job of maintaining them with our given resources,” said Tim St. Clair, president of the Board of Education. “Looking toward the future, we want to be sure they are what we need to continue helping all students become their best and keeping local elementary schools.”

A thorough facilities study was completed during the 2016-17 school year. Priorities were identified, and a board subcommittee has been formed to find ways to address these priorities.

The district has identified several areas for improvement:

  • Expanding learning opportunities for high school students, including updated science facilities and the addition of a health careers curriculum.
  • Allowing for better access to education, wellness and recreation for our students and community.
  • Improving safety/security.

The district has been engaging community members in the process through focus groups, and a community survey will be conducted in October.
