Good News to All PCSC Educators

Today, our office received a letter from the Indiana Department of Education informing us that Plymouth Community School Corporation has met all Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives on the Spring 2007 LAS Links exam. Limited English Proficient (LEP) students had to meet or exceed three specific benchmarks to attain this status.

· 57% exceeded state standard scale score points on the LAS Links exam.
· 67% achieved a Level 5 for a second time on the LAS Links exam
· 9% moved from a Level 4 or lower to a Level 5 on the Spring LAS Links exam.

We tip our hats to all teachers who work with the attitude that “all students can learn.” Your hard work and persistence is making a difference. Secondly, we also need to congratulate our Limited English Proficient students. They are attaining an education while working diligently to learn a new language. All of Plymouth needs to be proud of this accomplishment.

ISTEP Scores

ISTEP scores are scheduled to be sent home on December 17, 2007. Parents of Plymouth students in grades 3-10 will receive a copy of the ISTEP Student Report as well as a letter explaining the scores. If your child falls into the Did Not Pass performance level, you will be contacted by your child’s teacher or counselor to take part in the development of a Student Growth Plan. This plan is instrumental in developing strategies for improved student achievement. Do not hesitate to contact the school if you do not get a report or a phone call as the partnership between teacher, child, and parent is the instrument to successful academic growth.

With approximately 5 inches of snow on the ground this morning at 5:45 a.m., we decided to call a two hour delay for Plymouth Community Schools. At approximately 8:00 a.m., we decided that the roads were clear enough to proceed with school. Nothing appeared on the blog this morning because I did not have the passwords at home. That will be remedied for the future.

Also, for your reference we call WTCA, WNZE, WKVI in Knox, WNDU South Bend channel 16, and WSBT South Bend channel 22 to list delays or cancellations. By calling WSBT, our delays and closings are also on Sunny 101.5 FM and 99.9 FM. There have been several requests to also put delays and cancellations on B100 and Pulse FM. As soon as we receive confirmations back from the two radio stations, we will also have our cancellations on 100.7 FM and 96.9 FM.
