York City schools: End of state oversight near?
For nearly six years, the York City school board has operated under the watchful eye of a state-appointed financial recovery officer.
That watchdog now says the district is making good progress, and her oversight might not be needed much longer.
However, Carol Saylor said only one of the four financially distressed districts ensnared by a 2012 law — Harrisburg — has completed its recovery plan, and it’s still awaiting word on its recovery status.
“We don’t know what happens at the end of the plan,” she said. “No one seems to know.”
State control: The ink was barely dry on the law before York City, Harrisburg, Chester-Upland and Duquesne school districts found themselves under some degree of state control.
