Court battle over York School District control continues Monday

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A hearing will continue Monday in the ongoing process to decide whether the state will take over the York City School District.

Last week, the judge assigned to the case said school district employees can participate in the proceedings.  All of the other groups that wanted to take part, including the NAACP, parents, and the Pennsylvania School Boards Association, are not allowed to participate.

Poor test scores lead the chief recovery officer overseeing the district to recommend a state take over.

The school board says the district should be left to the educators, not the government, and they fear the district will become a charter school system if the state does take control.
