State determines if a child should be held back

October 10, 2011

PLYMOUTH — 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.

Plymouth Schools set redistricting meeting dates

October 3, 2011

Because of this, Superintendent Daniel Tyree feels that it’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.
