The Plymouth School Board accepted the recommendation of Kandi Tinkey, the corporation’s Business Manager to set the fees for the 2022-2023 school year.
Tinkey said the corporation adopted new math materials this year and by law, they are allowed to charge up to 25% of the original cost of the new textbooks. Kandi said, “Working to find the best way so parents are not stuck with a large bill, our recommendation is to split the original cost over 6-years because the corporation only updates the curriculum every 6-years. I think this is the fairest way.” She said they can’t change to cost of consumables because they are used up each year by the students.
The recommendation was unanimously accepted by the Plymouth School Board. This will set the cost for grades kindergarten through 5 grade and the costs for 6th grade through 12 grades.
Kindergarten will be $130
First grade $137
Second grade $133
Third grade $142
Fourth grade $142
Fifth grade $127
6th grade with choir or no music $138
6th grade with band $150
6th grade with orchestra $147
Grades 7 through 12 are dependent on the classes students take.
