Welcome to the Board of School Directors Website

Welcome to the School Board section of the District website. We hope you will find the information here and throughout the District Website helpful and useful.

School Directors are elected officials who serve without pay as the governing body of a School District. The School Board enacts policy and provides guidance to the Administration in the management of the School District.

The School Board typically meets two Mondays each month. During COVID-19, these meetings are held either by livestream or Zoom. During non-pandemic times, the meetings are held at the Educational Service Center, 775 Marion Road, York.  The first meeting of the month is a Planning Meeting, during which School Board members discuss issues and set the agenda for the Regular Meeting. The second meeting, called the Regular Meeting, is typically the meeting during which issues are voted upon. We welcome and encourage all of our District residents to attend our meetings.

Each meeting provides an opportunity for citizen input or comment either on a specific agenda item or on a general topic related to District operations or educational programs. Meeting agendas are available online under the "Board Meeting Agendas & Minutes" section of this website and made available to residents who attend the meetings.

The mission of the Central York School District is to provide educational opportunities through which ALL learners strive to achieve their full potential. The nine members of the Board of School Directors are committed to this mission, and likewise committed to serving as stewards of the funds we receive from state and local taxes.
