Substitutes Explanatory Information
The Plymouth School District Substitute Office continues to strive to provide better service to all our substitutes and staff. We utilize the Aspen platform, which is also our Student Management System to accomplish this. We believe utilizing Aspen helps our substitutes once they are in the building and substituting in classrooms.
