Union official questions Austintown BOE about layoff

Seriously, 35.00 an hour to consult on the transportation department!! Good steward of tax dollars? Mismanagement of funds at its finest!

Austintown schools probe faults Porter in run-in with Supt. Colaluca

Colaluca should have taken that other job. No one wants him running, or should I say ruining, our school district any longer.

Findings unavailable for spat between Austintown superintendent and board member

I think Ritchie should be in trouble for stirring the pot, like maybe he should have to foot the bill of the investigation since nothing would have ever been done if he hadn't been a two-faced high school mean girl and tattled on Porter to Colalucca. Talk about a waste of resources for the school and the police department. And they want us to trust them with our money....what a joke.

Austintown schools co-chairmen struggle to educate voters on bond issue

1. From what has been said, the cost to revamp would be about 45 million of which I was told the state will still provide the 30 million.
2. No more money than the 30 is being offered.
3. No, on more selective on open enrollment.
4. Yes, there are open enrollment kids who cause problems, but there are Atown kids who do as well. The school needs to be stricter instead of adopting the same discipline strategy that Chaney and Ytown schools did when Chaney had so many issues. There are constant fights.
5. The auditorium needs work, yes, but the gym and stadium just had major improvements. To use 10 million on re-re-doing that is just another example of how they like to waste money.

The heating issue with pipes bursting has been known about for years. Allegedly our maintenance staff in the high school have been told no preventative maintenance there. Our hand is being forced to pass this, just like it was when they wanted to replace the old AMS, which we never got reimbursed from the state for. I am 50/50 on passing this just so they can't possibly screw up getting the state money like they did with AMS. However, we need a new architect and new construction people to do this project, because the new schools still have major issues that have no been fixed and were not designed to house the students we have. Heck, half the kids have gym in the other building from the one they are in, how do you possible get to be the architect again when you not only build AMS too small, but you also made both of the new schools too small.

Officials say Austintown school issues show need for new building

Why do we need 10 million to rehab the current stadium/gym when the turf was just replaced, all the press boxes were redone, the visitors section just redone and the gym has a newer floor and new bleachers? It would only cost the district 45 million total to rehab Fitch, with the state still paying 30 million of that cost. Instead, this jerk who bought Ipads for all his buddies in the schools, wants the tax payers to fork over 45 million so he can pad his resume some more with a state of the art school. It is time for the Super to go!!!

Officials say Austintown school issues show need for new building

If they just maintained their buildings there would not be these issues. The BOE and Super can't be bothered to spend money on maintenance when it is so easy to use the open enrollment kids coming from Youngstown to convince the OSFC that we are an impoverished district and need 30 million to replace a school building.

Fun thing to note, the cost to replace the current Fitch with a new gym and to rehab the current gym (because they are not tearing it down) will be about 75 million. The cost to rehab it will be 45 million and the state is paying 30 million either way. Hmmmm, makes you wonder why they are pushing so bad for a new building when rehabbing it seems the way to go.
