Youngstown BOE approves materials for Volney Rogers, hires 8 new administrators

The city school board approved more than $234,000 in material and supply expenses to reopen Volney Rogers as a Discovery school next year and hired several administrators.

The money for Volney covers iPads, computers, laptops and library replacement materials to turn the building, which was closed this past school year, into Discovery 2, a choice program for third- through eighth-graders. The program, patterned after Discovery at Kirkmere, which opened this past school year, offers specialty courses in Spanish, engineering/math, visual arts, performing arts, investigative science and creative communications, in addition to core curriculum classes.

Board member Jacqueline Adair cast the only vote against the resolution for the expenses, saying she’s concerned about costs.

“The [Academic Distress] commission may have wanted this, but the commission doesn’t have to answer to the taxpayers in this city,” she said.

The board also approved Superintendent Connie Hathorn’s recommendations to appoint eight administrators.
