Today, the legacy of the past remains the vision for the future. Elected members of the Board of Education, serving the young people of the Plymouth-Shiloh School District, are ever-mindful of traditions of excellence and challenges of years to come.
As a resident of the district, you are invited to become active in the educational life of your community by attending meetings of the Board of Education. Typically, regular meetings are held at 6:30 pm., the third Monday of each month, in the district’s administration building located at 365 Sandusky Street in Plymouth, Ohio.
If you wish to speak to the Board of Education, time is set aside at the beginning of each regular meeting for citizens to discuss issues of concern. There is a sign in process that needs to be completed first.
Times and dates of all Board meetings are submitted for publication to The Shelby Daily Globe and Willard Times. Minutes of meetings will also be published on the web site. Meetings of the Board are open to the public, except for executive sessions during which Board members may discuss only business as defined by the Ohio Revised Code. These are personnel matters, sale or purchase of property, legal matters, and negotiations or bargaining sessions. Executive sessions are for discussion only. All formal action must be taken at a regular or special meeting open to the public.

Your involvement can begin at the school level. As a parent, get to know your child’s teachers. Scheduled conferences are held each year for parents and annual open houses at all schools provide formal opportunities to meet the teaching staff.
