Security Enhancements for 2013-2014


Central York School District considers the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff to be of the utmost importance. We strive to create a learning environment that protects the health and safety of ALL of our students and employees.

In a continued effort to proactively safeguard our students, faculty and staff, we have installed a visitor management system called School Gate Guardian. This system will be in use when the 2013-2014 school year begins and will require all visitors to produce valid Photo ID before gaining admittance to a district school or building.

Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation with the District as we implement this system and work to enhance security and safety throughout our schools.


PDE, CYSD Extend Testing Windows for
PSSA Math, Reading & Writing Due to Weather

The annual Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) is a standards based criterion-referenced assessment used to measure a student's attainment of the academic standards while also determining the degree to which school programs enable students to attain proficiency of the standards. The information obtained from these assessments serves as a valuable tool for planning future school programs, developing curriculum and in-service training of teachers, and information the public about student achievement.

    Please note: Due to the recent inclement weather and missed school days, the Pennsylvania Department of Education has granted school districts throughout Pennsylvania the opportunity to extend the testing windows for Math, Reading & Writing PSSAs. Central York School District will extend its windows to provide our faculty and students with more time to prepare for these state-mandated assessments. Please note the new windows, listed below.
