    Thank You for the presentation. Students with social/emotional support needs should be able to have needs met without having to leave their own school district or go without. The board should definitely support initiatives to increase resources to meet these needs.

    Regarding superintendent report and meeting our children’s needs – definitely would like to see our district be more equipped to provide services for ALL students.

    Increasing special education staff and supports across the board is essential for some but beneficial to all. Students at YS deserve a school environment that can support our diverse learners in an inclusive way. This has not been a historic area of strength for YS so it is encouraging to see the changing needs of students identified with a plan for appropriate and increased support. The board should fully support these initiatives, so that YS students have the comprehensive support they need to maximize their academic potential. Meeting recommended ratios for social worker, psych services, and increased emotional support services has widespread support in the community.



  4. Heidi Storey on October 14, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Thank you Dr. Krauser for presenting information about the changing needs of York Suburban students and how the district plans to meet them. It is striking to observe how many students with emotional support needs are currently in out of district placements. These students, like every other YS student, deserve the opportunity to have access to the quality education provided by their home district. Increasing in house emotional support services is supportive of the entire student body, teachers, and administrators and should be actively pursued. Providing these supports in house would also be fiscally responsible and eliminate the need for taxpayers to sponsor private tuition for these students. (Spring Garden Township)
