Parent Learning Option Intent Form

The School District of the City of York is working very hard to plan a safe return for our students and staff in the fall. As we shared with our school board recently, school will likely look different this year. We understand that every family is in a unique situation, health, and comfort level that we need to be ready to support. As a result, families will have two learning options for returning to school in Fall 2020 under the Green Phase. 1) In-person learning 2) K-12 Bearcat Cyber Academy. Please submit one form for each of your children enrolled at the School District of the City of York. This form will close on August 6, 2020 https://forms.gle/qzqL8Vk54xupmtDP9

Discipline Policy and Student Codes of Conduct

The School District of the City of York overhauled the discipline policy and Student Codes of Conduct for the 2017-18 school year. Updated versions for 2018-19 are available in PDF format below.

The district has deliberately pivoted from the traditional punitive approach to discipline, choosing instead to emphasize preventative measures and intervention strategies. Teachers and administrators have collaborated to develop an incentive-based, proactive approach to encouraging positive behavior.

We continue to expect the very best from our students, and we will hold them accountable. But we will also hold ourselves accountable for equipping students with the skills they need to be successful in life.

In preparation for this new approach, the district implemented a Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) system during the 2016-17 school year. PBIS is a school-wide tiered support system that serves as the basis for our Student Code of Conduct. PBIS provides a framework for schools to successfully integrate and includes evidenced-based strategies to support academic, social, and behavioral outcomes for all students. The PBIS process is used in a systematic approach to teach and reinforce positive behavior expectations for all students. PBIS is a preventative measure and engages students in different ways. The PBIS framework includes creating a positive school wide climate and culture and individualized support as needed.

The district saw significant progress after just one year of PBIS implementation. Most notably, the number of out-of-school suspensions decreased by 33 percent between 2015-16 and 2016-17.

Through the establishment of a new committee of parents, teachers and administrators, the district will continue to monitor the new policy and improve its effectiveness.
