PCSC has had a significant achievement within our school district that may make for a compelling story.

The Director of Food Services for the Plymouth Community School Corporation, Amy Kraszyk, recently graduated from the Indiana School Nutrition Association’s certification program, a collaborative effort with the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). The certification comprises 17 meticulously designed courses tailored specifically for Indiana professionals in the school nutrition field, holding both state and USDA recognition.

Kraszyk is among the select few, only two individuals so far, to graduate with the class of 2024. This achievement not only reflects her dedication to professional development but also underscores the commitment to maintaining the highest standards in school nutrition at PCSC. School nutrition often gets a bad reputation, but the Plymouth school professionals work to break the negative ideas around school lunch. Kraszyk’s passion for the subject is incredible to see.

The courses offered are not only comprehensive but also align with state and national standards, contributing to the overall improvement of school nutrition services.

In 2021 seven individuals graduated from this course and in 2022 there were eight graduates.  The previous PCSC director was one of the first in Indiana to complete the certification in 2021.

The Plymouth Community School Corporation shared this story because of the potential it has to shed light on the crucial role of school nutrition services and the commendable efforts our dedicated professionals, including Director Amy Kraszyk, invest in ensuring the well-being of the students.
