York City School District exits financial recovery program

YORK COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) – The New Year will mark a fresh start for the York City School District after more than a decade of serious struggles. The district is no longer under the state’s financial recovery program.

“The City of York School District is no longer a district on the mend. It’s a recovered district,” said Eric Hagarty, Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Education.

Pennsylvania Acting Secretary of Education Eric Hagarty made the announcement along with school officials today. The district has successfully met all of its benchmarks.

“The not in recovery label shows that we are making progress towards our goal of being the first school district,” said Andrea Berry, Superintendent of the York City School District.

As early as 2012, the Commonwealth included the district in a “financial recovery program” under legislation to help struggling districts get back on their feet financially.

“The law allows up to nine. To date, no district has entered recovery and turned the ship around and bailed out,” Hagarty said.

Superintendent Andrea Berry says it’s been a long road, with tough decisions along the way.

“In my first year here we ended up cutting about 20 jobs and that was tough. I wasn’t very popular,” said Superintendent Berry.

However, Berry says she has always put students first.

“Are our curricula aligned? Do we have a curriculum that challenges the gifted as well as the struggling?” added Beere.

The Wolf Administration has invested nearly $4 billion in public education and its visible results.
