UPDATE | Youngstown schools superintendent stays four more years



Published: Tue, June 25, 2013 @ 7:48 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — City schools Superintendent Connie Hathorn will be on the job for four more years, collect 10 percent less in annual salary, and be able to draw on his retirement.

By a 5-2 vote this afternoon, school board members approved Hathorn’s retirement and rehire. He will earn $119,240 annually.

The retirement is effective Sunday. His new contract runs from next Tuesday through July 31, 2017. Before retirement, Hathorn’s annual salary was $132,000.

“This board has one overriding goal, and that is to make the best decisions to benefit our students and families,” board President Richard Atkinson said in a written statement.

He said for more than two years, the board has worked with Hathorn and with the city schools academic distress commission to transform the district into “one defined by student choice and student achievement. Youngstown families now have more pathways and innovative programs leading to relevant jobs and college than any school or district in the area.”

Nice Job Connie,
You just got a 116000+ raise starting July 2nd. He will earn 116000 in retirement while collecting 119000 salary. Yet the public wants to attack teachers! What will he get in terms of unused sick leave and vacation days.....most likely 150,000 plus?

This is such a greedy, selfish practice carried out by flunkies and psycophants. If you are eligible to retire, RETIRE!!!!!!!!! You are cheating someone out of a job!! These people do,this as political payoffs. It is time to put this scummy selfish practice to the voters to ban it. All this does is keep the same old stale, inept ideas and practices while paying somebody off. Do not vote for the board member who voted for this.
