CYSD School Board, Education Assocation Agree to Contract through End of 2013-2014 School Year 

The following is a joint statement that was issued by the Central York School District Board of School Directors and the Central York Education Association Monday, March 10, 2014, following the School Board approval of a Memorandum of Agreement between CYSD and CYEA.

The Central York School District and the Central York Education Association have negotiated a one year
extension of their existing Collective Bargaining Agreement which otherwise expired as of June 30,
2013.  A Memorandum of Agreement was approved by the Association on Tuesday, March 4, and is scheduled for approval by the Board of School Directors on Monday, March 10.

Under the terms of the Memorandum of Agreement, the prior contract will continue in effect through June 30, 2014, with no increase to salaries, but with a reduction of student days, from 184 to 180 days for the current (2013-2014) school year only. These provisions will allow the District to complete the current school year on budget and to avoid any further extension of the school calendar caused by the unusually severe winter weather.

To date, the negotiations have been difficult but cordial and will continue. Both parties have expressed a desire to reach an agreement as soon as possible on the terms and conditions for a contract that would take effect following the conclusion of the current (2013-2014) school year.
