The York County School Division believes having active, involved and informed parents and families is critical to our students’ success. Because effective communication is critical to strong partnerships and engagement, we provide a variety of ways to communicate and engage with our community.
One of the primary responsibilities of a school system is to prepare students for their future. After all, today's students are the computer experts, contractors, doctors, educators, entrepreneurs, and employees of tomorrow.
The EngagedIN YCSD program connects interested parents, community members, and businesses with schools and students to share their career experiences or expertise with students.
There are multiple ways for individuals (working or retired) and businesses to help YCSD students make these Career Connections. To become involved, simply complete the EngagedIN form to share contact information, career field info, engagement interests, and availability.
YCSD offers a mobile app to help parents stay on top of what matters most. Homework and grades, staff email directories, school and division notification, social media, calendar of events, menus, confidential bullying report, maps & directions, and more are accessible from your smart phone or tablet. Users control the settings so they receive information from only those schools they care about. It's a quick way and efficient way to stay connected while you're on the go.

Parent Contact Information
It is very important that parents provide schools with current home address, home phone number and email address (if exists) to ensure schools can reach you with important information. Student contact forms will be provided to all parents at the start of the school year and should be returned immediately.
Parents will be notified of emergencies through the division’s rapid notification system. Parents are encouraged to remain close to their source of communication, whether it is phone or email, to ensure they are receiving accurate and timely updates on the emergency from school division staff.
We are excited to announce an addition to our notification system that will enhance school and division communications this school year by allowing us to deliver important information to you via Text/SMS messaging. This service is not intended to replace existing communications, but rather help enhance them.
Social Media Directory
In addition to the York County School Division website, we work to keep our community information through multiple online platforms. Below is a list of the various accounts currently in use, so you Like Us and Follow Us for the latest news & information! School groups and programs may also have additional accounts, be sure to look for them.
Aspen Family Portal
Parents can also access private student information online through the Aspen Family Portal. This secure web-based information management system is password-protected and will help to make communication among students, parents, teachers, and administrators more efficient. Families can use the Aspen Family Portal to view student schedules, assignments and grades, as well as daily attendance records and family contact information.
Account information is provided to parents during the enrollment process. If you have not received account access information, please contact your child’s school for assistance.
We know how much families like to share their back-to-school photos, so we've created signs for parents to use. Download and print your sign(s) below and share your photos on social media using the hashtag #YCSDFirstDay.
