YORK, Pa. (AP) - A career educator is being named the new chief recovery officer for the York City School District.

State and city officials Thursday named Carol Saylor to lead the recovery of the financially troubled central Pennsylvania district.

Saylor, who is from Manheim, has worked in education for 35 years, including stints as superintendent of the Fairfield Area and Manheim Central school districts.

Gov. Tom Wolf says Saylor’s leadership will put the city’s schools on a path to stability. She also will co-chair a committee with York Mayor Kim Bracey to ensure the community’s voice is represented.

Saylor succeeds David Meckley, who resigned as recovery officer last month.

Meckley has said his recovery plan, which involved some charter schools, would not be viable because of the governor’s opposition to charters.
