The start date for the speed cameras for the 2023-2024 school year will be delayed due to the ongoing Youngstown Education Association strike. 

The Youngstown City School District has canceled its previously scheduled Wednesday start date, pushing it back to this Friday. 

According to Lieutenant Robert Gentile, a start date for the speed cameras has yet to be determined.

On Monday, the YEA union voted to go on strike, but requested negotiations with Youngstown City School District on Tuesday. Their request was denied by YCSD Superintendent Jeremy Batchelor. 

The Youngstown Police Department plans to announce the start date a few days before it begins. 

Once the school speed zone enforcement resumes, the cameras will be monitoring speeds around the following schools: 

- Rayan Early College Middle School (Williamson) 

- Chaney High School (N. Hazelwood and Overlook) 

- Youngstown Rayen Early College High School ( W. Wood and Wick) 

- Volney Rogers Elementary School (S. Schenley)
