School District Of The City Of York

Recovery Plan

Message from Chief Recovery Officer

I was appointed by the Secretary of Education as the Chief Recovery Officer (CRO) for the School District of the City of York to develop and implement a financial recovery plan.  That plan is intended to lead the district into financial solvency and position it for academic success.  That plan was approved by the Board of School Directors and the Secretary of Education in April, 2016.

To view the Board-approved Plan, click here. (To view the district’s 2013 Recovery Plan, click here.)

You can also review a Recovery Plan update presented to the Board of School Directors on Aug. 16, 2017 by clicking here.

As CRO, I will use my experience as a parent, teacher, principal, superintendent, and leadership coach, in conjunction with the educational research and resources available through the Pennsylvania Department of Education, to identify successful programs and devise solutions for the opportunities identified in the Recovery Plan.

While the District remains in “Moderate Financial Recovery,” many of the financial goals established in the Recovery Plan have been achieved.  Moving forward, we will focus on the academic goals designed to improve third grade literacy, PSSA achievement, Keystone achievement and high school graduation.

This is a task that will not be achieved quickly or easily.  All of us will need to have patience and persistence to do what we must – insure that our children receive the very best education possible.  The task will also require the participation of everyone – faculty, staff, administrators, parents, students and community members.  Make no mistake about it, this will be hard work.  However, from what I have seen of this city and its citizens, you are up for the challenge.
