York City group looking for high impact ideas for district’s future

The advisory committee looking at the York City School District’s future is looking for big ideas.

The committee is seeking “high impact” ideas that address all of these areas: sound, effective education; a safe and healthy learning environment; and creating sustainable finances, said David Meckley  the district’s chief recovery officer.

He is tasked by the state with crafting a recovery plan for the district. The advisory committee will be reviewing a list of ideas at its meeting Feb. 28. A public forum is scheduled for 6 p.m. March 14 at Martin Library.

Ideas can be sent to Meckley at croyork@outlook.com or by mail to 31 N. Pershing Ave., York, PA 17401. Visit www.ycsdrecoveryplan.org for more information.

So far, the only publicly presented idea is the YorkCounts proposal to turn the district into an all-community charter school model.
