07/29/13 The Plymouth School Board will meet in executive session on Monday, July 29 at 5:00 p.m. to develop a strategic plan for the future.

  Facilitating their efforts will be Dr. Ed Eiler, who served as the superintendent for Lafayette School Corporation for 16 years. Dr. Eiler is now a consultant with Administrators Assistance in Brookston, IN.

Plymouth Schools Superintendent Daniel Tyree said, “We want to write goals and create a vision that can be judged annually.” He said they would be looking at both financial and curricular areas.

Tyree said, “We are more than just ISTEP scores.” He added, “We want to be assessed as a total school product.”

Dr. Eiler retired in June of 2012 from the Lafayette position. He now serves as a visiting assistant clinical professor for Purdue University as well as a consultant for Administrators Assistance. Administrator Assistance utilizes a team of retired school administrators with expertise in a number of areas including, but not limited to, budget preparation, human resources assessment, and feasibility studies.

Tyree said the Board tries to avoid executive sessions in general, but are using the July meeting to find a measurement system in reference to goals as well as work on timelines.

According to Tyree, the goals will be established at a public meeting.
