2016 Meeting Dates  
Parents/Guardians Invited to Attend Upcoming "Mass Customized Learning" Forums  

Mass Customized Learning: One District's Journey
Mass Customized Learning: One District's Journey
Central York School District will host its FINAL MCL Parent/Guardian Forum of 2015 from 11AM-12:30PM Tuesday, December 15, at the Educational Service Center, 775 Marion Road, York. 

Central York School District's School Board, Administration, Faculty & Staff, Parents/Guardians and Community members have been working together for the past few years to determine how we can best support our K-12 learners with a customized education experience designed to best meet each individual student's needs while preparing them for success in school and beyond.

Although a lot of the conversations about customized learning started with our Comprehensive Planning Process, and continued through several public Town Meetings and School Board meetings, we are still hoping for more opportunities to engage directly with parents/guardians about what this means for our schools. 

We are currently in the planning stages and talking about many different ways that we can provide the best learning experience for our students and families - and we definitely need input from our parents and guardians to help with this process!

You do not need to RSVP for this session. If you unable to attend, we encourage you to contact Dr. Snell, Superintendent, at (717 ) 846-6789, ext. 1208, and schedule a time to speak with him about any questions or concerns you may have on this or any other topic. We hope you can join us!
