Communication with families will be done through email as much as possible this school year. You may also visit our website at www.ycs.k12.pa.us for more information. 

We understand that there may be some uncertainty and anxiety surrounding virtual learning. Please know we are all in this together, expect to hear from your child’s teacher very soon and we can not wait to welcome all new and returning Bearcats with open arms (virtually) to our Bearcat Family.

The School District of the City of York has utilized data, in collaboration with stakeholders, staff and community members, superintendent input and support, as well as LIU12 guidance. The Pennsylvania Department of Education and Pennsylvania Department of Health recently issued recommendations and guidance based upon the level of community transmission. Under that recommendation, York County was deemed to be in “Moderate” in which the instructional model should be a blended learning model or full remote model. The district has taken into consideration all available health and safety recommendations and guidance and is confident that this plan allows all bearcats to return to learning safely.

El Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de York ha utilizado datos, en colaboración con los sectores interesados, el personal y los miembros de la comunidad, las aportaciones y el apoyo del superintendente, así como la orientación de LIU12. El Departamento de Educación y el Departamento de Salud de Pensilvania emitieron recientemente recomendaciones y orientación basadas en el nivel de transmisión en la comunidad. De acuerdo con esa recomendación, se consideró que el condado de York se encontraba en la categoría “Moderada”, en la que el modelo de instrucción debería ser un modelo de aprendizaje mixto o un modelo completo a distancia. El distrito ha tomado en consideración todas las recomendaciones y orientación disponibles en materia de salud y seguridad y confía en que este plan permita que todos los Bearcats regresen al aprendizaje con seguridad.

She is currently working on her dissertation on the Evaluation of a Parent Involvement Program in our school district.
