PLYMOUTH â€” The debate on whether holding a student back a grade in school is more detrimental or beneficial has been going on for as long there have been schools, parents and students.

As the 2011-12 school years starts there are concerns with an out of balance situation, but this time itâ€™s Webster Elementary and Menominee Elementary that are getting dangerously close to losing Title I services. Because of this, Superintendent Daniel Tyree feels that itâ€™s important to take a close look at the shifts in population within the school district and make possible adjustments through re-districting for the 2012-13 school year.
