The Austintown Board of Education recognizes that booster groups and parent support organizations are an integral part of viable public school systems. They provide the important extras that limited tax dollars do not and can not fund. These groups not only raise funds to help students succeed but are an opportunity for passionate parents/guardians to become involved in their children’s schools and activities. Booster groups shall organize and function in a way consistent with the District’s philosophy and objectives, within Board policies, and in accordance with applicable regulations and guidelines as described in the Booster Organization Handbook.
