We're On The Move
The Youngstown City School District Administrative Offices are moving.
Most offices have moved out of the former administration building at 20 W. Wood St. That building will be renovated and turned into the new home of Youngstown Early College. The larger space will enable YEC to grow, offering even more students the opportunity to earn an associate's degree by the time they graduate from high school. YEC is expected to open in its new quarters for the 2018-19 school year.
The majority of the administrative offices have moved to East High School, 474 Bennington Ave. That includes Human Resources, the CEO's office, Parent Pathways Institute, Student Services and Teaching and Learning. Technology is now housed inside Choffin Career and Technical Center.
Only the Business and Treasurer's offices remain at 20 W. Wood and they are expected to move to East by month's end. 
To visit one of the offices at East, report to the main office and you will be directed to the right place. You must have photo identification that will be scanned by a police officer to gain entry to the school.
Telephone numbers remain the same.  Check back here for updates.
Third-Grade Reading Guarantee Testing
The Third-Grade Reading Guarantee requires that a third-grader must earn a 44 or higher on the reading portion of the Third-Grade English Arts tests (AIR) or a scaled score of 672 to meet the guarantee. There will be two opportunities this school year for children to take the test. The first is the week of Oct. 23, 2017 and the second is in April 2018.
Last-dollar YSTAR Scholarships
Youngstown City School District students can receive up to $3,000 of last-dollar funding for expenses such as tuition, mandatory fees, parking and books (books up to $500) to attend either Youngstown State University or Eastern Gateway Community College.
