Technology

Central York School District takes pride in being a leader in technology integration within our classrooms and schools. Our district equips each student with a dedicated device tailored to their grade level or specific learning needs. Students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 receive their own iPad, while students in Grades 9-12 are provided with a MacBook. Furthermore, all our employees use MacBooks.

We employ various platforms that enable active parental engagement in their child's educational journey, including a Student Information System and Student Learning System.

The district boasts a dedicated team offering technology support, training, and assistance to students, faculty, staff, and administrators.

Essential Resources

Skyward is the District's Student Information System (SIS). It stores information that includes attendance history, grades, school reports, personal family information (address, phone, email, emergency contacts), and health information. Skyward is also used as a communications tool for teachers and administrators to send messages to families.

The Skyward username is automatically generated for families and is typically last name, first initial (eg: Chris Jones would be jonesc). Your Skyward account is created when enrolling your student.

Schoology is the District's Learning Management System (LMS). It is an extension of the physical classroom. Children access learning materials and show what they know in Schoology. Schoology gives them the ability to interact with their teachers and classmates.

Families use Schoology too. Important classroom and school information is found on the Welcome page and Family folder in a course. Families can see the things their child is doing and how they are progressing in school.
