1) The record shows differently.<quoted text>
Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano began investigating athletic funding, the pay to participate policy and its thin justification, and various support organizations for those extracurricular programs. The amount of cooperation they received from each group was appallingly hesitant and drug out. Support from the nominal leader, Mr. Malone, of the staff and the school district would have gone to great lengths to expedite the process. Alas, it did not come.
Thank you for pointing out the importance of a comma.
No, technology is the hardware involved in transferring digital information to our children.
You are correct and the first attempt made to make our schools wireless resulted in a $500,000 spent for an underpowered, glitchy system that did not work as advertised and was ultimately scrapped.
Our schools now enjoy an integrated wireless network that functions the way it is supposed to function and is scalable for future needs and requirements.
Money well spent this time vs money ill spent originally.
National attention on left wing blogs aimed at furthering an unsustainable narrative isn't really what I would term national attention.
Maybe CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBS, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Examiner, etc were at all of our board meetings.
I must have missed them.
Perhaps you have missed yesterday's front page of the Dayton Daily News, of the ever growing number of children taking advantage of early college credit options. Compare that story with the one written by the Warren County Education Service Center in January 2013 about Springboro.
According to the Warren County Educational Service Center reports from 2007, 2010, and 2013, Mr. Malone was engaged in a process that was going in the complete opposite of what the Dayton Daily News reports as a growing interest in the Post Secondary Education Option (PSEO) program, A/P classes, or dual credit high school classes. It would appear funding money had nothing to do with those choices Mr. Malone was making, as the levy up for current renewal was generating the full amount the entire time period under discussion.
"Documents provided to the TAV Team indicate that contrary to the HSTW philosophy, SHS
believes that offering low~level courses is in the best interest of students.≠ This belief,
however, WAS NOT SUBSTANTIATED by research or data."
"Although SHS offers numerous AP and PSEO options, only 20% of the students report they attempted to earn college credit during high school. This is a DECREASE of 43% from 2008, and 60% below the High Schools That Work goal."
Those numbers would mean we had 35% of our students engaged in these courses in 2008.
It would also mean the standard the High Schools That Work program is seeking for a community such as ours would be 50% participation.
For 13 years Mr. Malone had the opportunity and duty to mold a culture within our high school that reflected the community's respect and desire for a challenging education for our children.
Mr. Malone delivered just the opposite.
Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson
2) You're welcome
3) I guess Malone put in the original system, must have been his fault somehow.
4) I would suggest that the Huffington Post is as national as the New York Times. I guess all the tv crews at the board meetings are always at every meeting.
5) The board also had an obligation and stood by and did NOTHING.
