The head of the Ashtabula Area City School District’s Transportation Department has resigned.

He sent transportation employees a memo on Wednesday, naming Katherine Baltes the interim transportation supervisor. Kim Gregory will remain the department’s administrative assistant. Astorino denied rumors the district might privatize the transportation department. Superintendent Melissa Watson also told the Star Beacon via email it wasn’t true.
