York County Legislators, Independent Fiscal Office to Reveal York County School Consolidation Study Findings
YORK – The members of the York County House Republican Delegation, state Reps. Seth Grove (R-York), Keith Gillespie (R-Hellam), Mike Regan (R-Dillsburg), Majority Whip Stan Saylor (R-Red Lion) and Will Tallman (R-Adams/York), along with Rep. Kevin Schreiber (D-York), will join with Pennsylvania’s Independent Fiscal Office (IFO) to reveal the finding of a study into the consolidation of York County’s 15 contiguous school districts. The study was launched due to a request from the delegation last September. Rep. Ron Miller (R-Jacobus), who is retiring, will serve as moderator for the event.

“We requested the study because the costs associated with running a school district continue to go up, especially with the skyrocketing costs of pensions and health care,” Grove said. “The debate over merging schools has been around for years, but up to this point, it is not an option which has seen serious study. I am looking forward to reviewing the results to see if there are ways we can maintain access to a quality education while trimming costs.”

The meeting, which is open to the public, is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 16, from 6-8 p.m. in the cafeteria of the York County School of Technology, located at 2179 South Queen St., in York.

“I appreciate the IFO’s efforts in taking a look at consolidation,” Saylor added. “I invite people from across York County to come to this meeting to learn more about this important issue.”
