If the school board is spending money on technology, then why are there eight year old computers in the high school labs?

My own research? Me thinks you haven't read a single thing I've posted.
Did you just say your convictions are weak? I think you're preaching that to the choir...we all have witnessed that from your posts. lol

Money that is planned and allocated for purchases must still move through the proper channels to ensure our district spends that money responsibly, rationally, and reasonably to the best accrued benefit of us all.

Obviously, Ron Malone wants to be a "school board member" to continue serving the best interests of the Springboro Education Association. Perhaps he has not looked past his big ego broadly enough to recognize that a school board representative has to have VISION for doing what's right for our SEA school community AND our community of taxpayers as a whole; and that the school board elected official must have a civic pride in SERVING all constituents.
Our reform minded school board representatives have the winning agenda of civic pride in serving ALL constituents; but Mr. Malone has rejected the new philosophy of our reform minded agenda; and now seeks only to serve his own ego by trying to turn a very important school board election into a popularity contest. Where is the professionalism in this tunnel vision leadership that could possibly benefit our children's future education?

Speaking of meaningless lawsuits and wasting people's money just because you can, let me present exhibit number one in the history of David Stuckey.
Unfortunately for Mr Stuckey he did not prevail, more than one person in this community has commented over the years on how much better of a basketball coach he was than Mr. Holtrey.

No, not my wedgie, it's the lack of anyone here supporting any of these candidates.

If you would even look at an adgenda, it lists what will be covered in excecutive session, so people know.
"A funny thing happened on the way to the coronation.........." Reminds me of Romney and his party's ineptitude to win an election each time I read it.

YOU keep giving us reasons to look at other candidates that may be better qualified...based on your own criteria.

Great question...I'm sure the bright people around here have an excuse uh, er answer for that one.

If three seats were to be elected and I had only these options, I'd vote for Mickey.
Then I'd submit write-in ballots for Goofy and Pluto.
From what has been seen, heard, uttered, written and posted thus far, Malone Stuckey and Anderson are developing (sigh, yet another) "for the kids" campaign theme. So far their campaigns are not positive efforts. Most of their energies appears to be involved in making carefully selective attacks at past or present school board decisions, or worse, board members themselves. This community is not hearing anything from Malone Stuckey or Anderson about their respective individual visions or plans for Springboro Schools.
Just like you eloquently posted, Lerxst, this current board has brought financial stability to this district - Financial stability for the first time in a decade. By focusing on financial stability as a first priority, it eventually opened many doors that allowed the board to address scores upon scores of long overdue student educational needs and long overdue infrastructure needs. And of course as everyone knows, recently the teachers got the payday they were looking for.
This community remembers o-so-well the levels of manipulation it was forced through during the tax-and-spend Baker years. Voters in this community are wise enough to understand that voting in Malone Stuckey and Anderson represent a regressive a step toward a similiar type of lack of accountability this district suffered from during Detwiller-Baker. Voters in this community have a clear realization that school board meeting audiences are pre-planned well in advance to be heavily seated by with those in support of the teachers union. These union members have no qualms about USING THEIR CHILDREN as shills to help ensure that future padding is placed in the insides of their purses and wallets.

You realize that doing that hands the victory to MSA. Your choice.
#27469 Sep 16, 2013
And yet no names are uttered. MSA will win on name recognition alone. Don't you people understand elections? Obama does.
#27470 Sep 16, 2013
Nice diversion. The board claimed that the technology would be in place for this school year.(actually because of the common core dollars, it has to be) That's why the teachers have the laptops and the towers were removed.
#27471 Sep 16, 2013
A quarter century later - What has changed?...nothing!
It is unfortunate that many in this and other communities have become so numb and apathetic to the public sector's abject sense of entitlement.

School board president brought identity fraud complaint
Assistant fire chief under investigation Blog post basis for identity fraud probe
Posted: 12:05 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013
By Lawrence Budd - Staff Writer
Kelly Kohls, president of the Springboro school board, filed a complaint that resulted in the investigation of an assistant fire chief facing an identity fraud allegation, according to a police report obtained by the Dayton Daily News.
Kohls reported to Clearcreek Twp. police on July 27 that someone posed as her in an internet blog focused on Springboro school levy issues, according to the report.
The initial report that triggered the investgation of Chris Vecchi, assistant fire chief in Clearcreek Township, was obtained Wednesday in response to a newspaper request for documents.
The blog post was made on July 27 in a discussion of the need for a school levy in Springboro, according to the report.
The board recently voted to seek renewal of a reduced levy for operating funds after months of heated community debate. District voters have rejected five consecutive levies for new operating funds.
Vecchi was placed on administrative leave on Aug. 15, pending results of an identity fraud investigation by police and an internal investigation, according to township records.
Authorities began focusing on Vecchi after investigating Kohls’ complaint and obtaining a warrant that enabled them to identify the source of the blog posting, Clearcreek Twp. Police Chief John Terrill said Wednesday.
No charges have been filed.
Terrill said he still is investigating whether there is enough proof to bring one or more criminal charges.
“That may lead to one. It may lead to more than one,” Terrill said.
Vecchi’s suspension notice said he is accused of identity fraud, a fifth-degree felony.
The Clearcreeek Township Fire District provides fire protection and ambulance service in Springboro and the township. Springboro has its own police department.
Kohls, who is not seeking re-election, could not be reached for comment.
Vecchi’s lawyer said he is working with a township lawyer to resolve the matter.
As part of his administrative leave requirements, Vecchi, a firefighter in Clearcreek Twp. since September 2003, is required to remain at his home from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays. No disciplinary hearing has been scheduled.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said his office was contacted by Clearcreek police about an identity fraud case.
“Nobody was identified at that time,” Fornshell said in an email earlier this week.
In Ohio, identity fraud is the criminal charge used in cases involving the alleged theft of a person’s identity or fraud committed using the stolen identity, according to authorities.
“Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used to refer to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain,” according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
There is no allegation of financial gain in this case. Still Terrill said using someone’s identity on a blog could result in criminal action.
“Sometimes you are responsible for the words that you write,” Terrill said.

What do I realize? Any or all of the following...
You lack enough COGNITIVE ABILITY to click on the Warren County Board of Elections website (the link I PROVIDED to you earlier), the website that provides names of candidates running for Springboro school board, as well as other Warren county elections.
You are much too A.D.D. to wait until said candidates make their respective strategic campaign moves.
You are inherently, a jerk.
#27475 Sep 16, 2013
...no names are uttered, you say? Obviously, you are not listening in the RIGHT places.
Do you still not know that your MSA team has been LEFT behind the RIGHT campaign trail in the continued direction of our reform minded board philosophy?
Do you still not know, that voters all around town doing what's right for our school district and community, all agree that
"there is no place in our children's 21st century education for
the status quo leadership of Ron Malone's past 40 years of expertise?"

Responsible taxpaying citizens should contact Clearcreek Township Administrator, Dennis Pickett, and ask that Mr. Kidd bring an apology to citizens at the next township government meeting.
Mr. Kidd should bring Mr. Vecchi's resignation, with an apology to Clearcreek/Springboro citizens for this unacceptable behavior.
How can we trust our Fire Chief's judgement for future decisions unless he makes the responsible decision to relieve Mr. Vecchi of his irresponsible public service?

Unfortunate, indeed, and very WASTEFUL of our
Guess that's to be expected in such a wealthy affluent community when citizens would rather pay up and go along to just get along with local government leaders, rather than face the personal attacks and injustices, that our public sector's sense of entitlement, has done to good citizens like Kelly Kohls (simply because of her political beliefs of fiscal responsibility).
Whatever happened to those four Springboro teachers/coaches who "lawyered up" for legal protection instead of telling the truth regarding their behaviors in question?
Wasn't one of those four teacher/coaches, Mr. Benjamin, who was just granted a supplemental sports contract for the new school year? What subjects does Mr. Benjamin teach at the school?
Also, does anyone know if the Tammy Grigsby lawsuit has been settled?
