An education work group of YorkCounts, an initiative of the York County Community Foundation, presented its findings to the advisory committee working on a financial recovery plan for the York City School District tonight.

The work group was convened over the summer to look at methods that have turned failing, high-poverty districts into high performing districts, foundation officials said. The Education Policy and Leadership Center, a Harrisburg-based nonprofit, was asked to do a fact-finding analysis.

After the work group began meeting, the city school district was declared in "financial recovery" by the state, and David Meckley was appointed as chief recovery officer to craft a plan for turning district finances around.

An advisory committee is working with Meckley on the plan.
