YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A judge has ruled that Youngstown City School’s board president must choose a new person for the district’s academic distress commission.
Back in November, president Brenda Kimble named Carol Staten to serve on the commission fulfilling the requirement of a teacher.
But Staten is a substitute principal, and the teacher’s union argued she did not meet the requirement.
Judge Lou D’Apolito agreed with the union and has given Kimble two days to pick a new person to fill what was going to be Staten’s spot.
The academic distress commission will then move forward with making decisions for the district.
