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

William Penn Pool Restoration Project

Since March 2016, a community group of York High alumni have been organizing to accomplish an ambitious but important goal: Fix the swimming pool and diving tank at William Penn Senior High School.

The pool, which once hosted one of York County’s premier aquatics programs, has been empty for about seven years.

Constructed in 1971, the pool no longer meets PIAA competition requirements and requires significant upgrades.

The BT Express, a community group that advocates for the academic and athletic success of York City students, has partnered with York City Mayor Kim Bracey and York County Economic Alliance President and CEO Kevin Schreiber as co-chairs of the $1.2 million capital campaign.

On Jan. 26, 2017, the BT Express held a press conference at the high school to announce the campaign.

You can read accounts of that press conference in The York Daily Record here and The York Dispatch here.
