PLYMOUTH â€”Â Just five years ago the Plymouth School District was so out of balance that Washington Elementary did not have a Title I teacher or aides. 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.
The arts -- and its offerings to students at Culver Academies as well as to the community at large -- are at the fore as the school prepares to unveil the Rosemary Berkel Crisp and Harry L.Crisp II (CMA â€™53) Center for the Visual Arts on its campus, which will be dedicated Oct. 7.
The $4.1 million retrofit of Eppley Hall of Science provides the spaces necessary for Culverâ€™s visual arts curriculum with new studios and dedicated classrooms for drawing, painting, sculpting, and printmaking, an expanded photography area, an auditorium/classroom, and two galleries.
