Dear Plymouth Educational Center Families,
It’s hard to believe we are nearing the end of the school year! We are excited about the future of PEC, and look forward to collaborating with you in the coming weeks! As you may know, PEC has been notified of re-authorization into the future with our authorizer, Central Michigan University. Distinctive Schools is honored to have been selected as the new full service Charter Management Organization (CMO) for PEC, and will be on campus frequently in the coming weeks. We are excited to celebrate the history, culture and traditions of PEC and to bring new and exciting change to the school as we begin to work together.
This has been an incredible year for our students, staff, and families. Distinctive Schools is committed to ensuring a strong finish to the school year and we are actively planning for next school year. We are excited for a great 2019-2020 school year, focused on academic excellence for all, a strong social-emotional learning environment and providing the best place to teach and learn for students in teachers in all of Detroit. We can’t wait to kick-off the first day of school, September 3, 2019! To that end, we want to share several changes to our school calendar for next year.
Overview of 2019-2020 Calendar
These changes consider multiple perspectives from students, teachers and families. Wednesday early release days will allow for all campuses in our network to spend time collaborating. All calendar decisions were also made with careful consideration by the Distinctive Schools network team, and PEC School Leadership. We appreciate all of the parent feedback and we are grateful for the support from all of our families.
We thank you for your continued partnership.
–Scott Frauenheim, CEO, Distinctive Schools
