Cultivating meaningful, collaborative relationships with students, families, staff, and community members is a core value of the School Board and division leaders. The division believes in taking an intentional approach to ensuring families, students, team members and community members have a voice, and believe their feedback, input and participation is meaningful and valued. One method involves inviting individuals to participate in division-level committees.

Annually, the School Board appoints individuals to identified advisory councils or committees of citizens of the school division for consultation with reference to specific matters pertaining to local schools. Advisory committee members include individuals interested in helping York County School Division achieve its mission and goals.

School Board Advisory Committees

Additionally, departments may convene ad-hoc committees to engage individuals in developing a recommendation to the superintendent and/or School Board on a specific topic. Details about the purpose of ad-hoc committees, meeting agendas and minutes, and status reports to the School Board can be found below.

2023-24 Ad-Hoc Committees:

Elementary Attendance Zone Balancing Committee

The York County School Division (YCSD) is evaluating potential changes to elementary school attendance zones based on school enrollment numbers and classroom space within each building. This review was prompted by several factors:

  • Historically high enrollment numbers at several schools, most notably Magruder Elementary School (MES)
  • Renovations and additions at Seaford Elementary School (SES)
  • Redistribution of gifted education from the EXTEND center at Dare Elementary School (DES) to other schools across the division

In the summer of 2023, YCSD contracted with ARCBridge Consulting to analyzing county data and develop potential options for adjusting elementary attendance zones. The division then assembled a committee of staff and parents, representing each elementary school, to set criteria and evaluate the options to make a final recommendation to the board.

Of the five options presented by the consultant, the committee favored "Plan E" overall, but included a suggestion to evaluate the upper and lower county change independently rather than as one individual plan and to consider a phased in approach to making adjustments. The York County School Board has scheduled a public hearing regarding possible adjustments to elementary attendance zones during the regular monthly meeting, beginning at 7 p.m., February 26, at York Hall, 301 Main Street, Yorktown.
