Austintown school board to review open enrollment

Posted: Updated:
AUSTINTOWN TWP., Ohio -

The Austintown Board of Education will review its policy on allowing students from other school districts to attend classes in Austintown.

Several parents have complained about open enrollment.

At Wednesday night's meeting, Board President Kathy Mock says the board will conduct a thorough review of the police, and possibly make adjustments.

Mock says it will be an ongoing process.

A recent state audit was critical of Austintown's open enrollment, saying the district could save $766,000 by making modifications.

Superintendent Vince Colaluca defended the school's program, saying efforts are being made to keep class sizes to a minimum.

The school board has yet to act on renewing Colaluca's contract. 

The board last month tabled an agenda item to grant the renewal

Mock says she expects the board will have a decision in about a month.
