Mr. Tyler Haymond

Principal

I am honored to be the Principal at Plank Junior High. I look forward to continue our work with our parents, students, and staff to further promote academic growth and student success. I received my bachelor’s degree in special education from Illinois State University in 2004. I moved on to Concordia University in 2012 where I pursued and received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.  I received my endorsement for Director of Special Education from the University of St. Francis. One of my passions is working and supporting students with special needs. One of my core values that I share with my staff is the belief that all students can learn, and building meaningful relationships with kids is the heart of education.

Our goal at Plank Junior High is to prepare our students by teaching them the essential academic and social skills they need to succeed in high school and beyond. We also plan to provide a warm and welcoming environment for our students, parents, and valued community members. We are very excited to welcome all of our students back into our building full time to start the school year. We are ready! Welcome to Plank!
