Meet prospective principals Tuesday


Prospective principals for Chaney and East High Schools will be available for a meet-and-greet session at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in the East High School auditorium, according to a media release from Youngstown School District.

District CEO Krish Mohip said finding the right principals to fit the schools was important due to the “vital role” principals play in the education of students.

According to the media release, the district included feedback and perspective from parents, students, teachers and the general community when deciding which candidates to consider for the positions.

The district hired Atlantic Research Partners of Chicago to conduct a national search for prospects, according to the release.
