(York) -- The superintendent of the York School District in central Pennsylvania has resigned to take a job on Long Island.

Superintendent Deborah Wortham announced her resignation Wednesday, after the presentation of a financial recovery plan for the district.

Wortham says she's accepted the position of superintendent in the Roosevelt Union Free School District in Long Island, N.Y.

Two board members also resigned at the meeting.

Board member James Morgan says he was leaving for personal and health reasons; board member Aaron Willford also says he's resigning.

Wortham had been superintendent since June 2011.

She says she came to do a job and believes she has helped move the district in the right direction.

She says she told the board of her plans to leave three weeks ago.
