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

Published: Thu, March 27, 2014 @ 11:30 a.m.


An investigation into allegations made by Austintown Superintendent Vincent

Colaluca and board member Harold Porter cost the district thousands of


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.

And they want to get a levy passed to build a new high school? Tell you what, why don't these "leaders" pay back the school district and see if that might help the levy's cause.

Seems like a rather large percentage of BOE members in all school districts in the area leave a lot to be desired. Wonder if it would be better if they went back to school and let the students take "positions" on the board. Couldn't do much worse.....just vote some of these "ins" OUT......

How about letting these to children pay that bill? It seems it is always no big deal when its tax dollars that pay this childish crap.
