The Austintown Board of Education met on Jan. 4 to get organized for the new calendar year. Don Sherwood was elected to continue as board president and Robin Krempasky was elected as vice president. Both took the oath of office from board treasurer Ryan Ghizzoni.

Krempasky was also appointed to serve as Student Achievement Liaison with the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) and Kathy Mock was appointed as Legislative Liaison with the OSBA.

With the 2019 positions filled, the board turned to other business which included a resolution to permit a list of 501.C3 non-profit booster organizations to use the school's logo and name. The listed organizations would be required to provide annual financial reports, but would not be overseen by the board of education.
