Board member and superintendent tiff cost Austintown schools $16,175.60

AUSTINTOWN

An investigation into allegations made by Austintown Superintendent Vincent

Colaluca and board member Harold Porter cost the district thousands of

dollars.

HR On Call Inc. charged district attorneys $16,175.60 for its

investigation. The district then reimbursed its attorneys with district

funds for the case that found Porter violated board policy, bullied

Colaluca, and had "conflicting business interests."

Also in the report, there was an email where Colaluca told board members he

had been offered the assistant superintendent job with the Mahoning County

Educational Service Center for $106,000 a year in May 2012.

That would be only a small raise from his current salary in Austintown,

$103,939.81 for the 2013-2014 school year.
