Youngstown school board consider's supt.'s future

YOUNGSTOWN — Some city school board members support Superintendent Connie Hathorn staying on the job, while others are either noncommittal or didn’t respond to inquiries.

Hathorn, superintendent since January 2011, is one of four finalists for superintendent of Little Rock, Ark., schools.

Because he started mid-academic year, Hathorn believed his contract expired Dec. 31, but it runs through July 31, 2014. Still, Hathorn said that doesn’t change his desire to explore his options.

Board members are meeting next week to complete an evaluation of the superintendent after which they say they’ll talk about his contract.
