York Shared Services Committee Minutes

York-Pavilion Shared Services Committee Meeting
6:00 p.m., October 4,2017


Location: Pavilion High School- Superintendent’s Conference Room

Present: Jim Sattora, Dave Furletti, Cal Ayers-Tillotson, Ken Ellison, Dave Sperino, Steve
Beardsley, Sheila Eigenbrod, Dave Sylvester, Marilyn Moore, and Ed Orman. Jr.

Meeting minutes:
Shared sports updates:
Shared programs: Football, Boys Soccer, Boys VB, X-Country, Swimming, and Wrestling. All programs are doing well and many would be at risk of elimination if the share option wasn’t available. Mr. Orman reported the State’s decision to count 30% of the smaller district’s student population in determining the shared team’s classification. This is an increase from 25% in past years. Due to our student numbers, this will not impact our classification level.
Mr. Sattora shared his concern regarding PCS girl sports for the fall of 2018. The population of female students may be very low for several teams so additional sharing maybe necessary to fill rosters. This issue will be revisited during our next Shared Sen’ices meeting.

FFA/Agriculture Program:
PCS has started an Ag Education program and formed a FFA club. Several YCS students will
join the Agra-Business course via distance learning during the spring semester. YCS students that participate in any Ag class have the opportunity to join our FFA club. Future plans include securing CTE accreditation for the Ag program. Mr. Sylvester said YCS would be interested in the CTE program. A half-day program would help eliminate a number of scheduling challenges we have encountered in the past when trying to share courses.

SAT/ACT Prep:
For the third year Pavilion and York will offer shared SAT and ACT prep programs. 65 students have signed up for SAT prep and 49 for ACT prep. Students from both districts have benefited from this opportunity.
