Youngstown schools CEO works weeks without paycheck


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — The chief executive officer of Youngstown City Schools has worked for nearly six weeks without receiving a paycheck.

Krish Mohip tells The Vindicator in Youngstown (http://bit.ly/2b2Ge56 ) that he hasn’t given the district some documentation it needs to release money for his salary, which is provided by the state.

The district opted not to pay him directly.

Mohip was appointed under a hotly-contested takeover law crafted privately by a group of business, community and education leaders. It was then rushed through both state legislative chambers last year.

He says he’s focused on getting school started and fixing issues with transportation and special education outlined this summer by state reviewers.

The Chicago native said he planned to gather missing paperwork over the weekend.

His starting salary under a 3-year contract is $160,000.
