No - was it on the news? Haha, didn't see that but I'll check it out!
And seeing how Kohls' protégés (and thereby her policies) were soundly defeated at the polls, I think it's pretty clear whom the community has had enough of.
Kelly Kohls has been a dreadful school board president, and the community welcomes the new (and improved!) board! I can't wait to giver her a standing ovation when she leaves!
Oh, I am quite successful in my own right and certainly harbor jealousy toward no one - especially KK - who is a legend in her own mind.
#29344 Nov 20, 2013
Thank you so much for all this new information!...Oh wait, nothing new here. In fact I'm pretty sure I've seen this post about 32 times now.
#29345 Nov 20, 2013
...sounds like your dreadful narrow mindedness could certainly
welcome some improvement; but it'll take more than a standing ovation to rise above your low mental capacity. A mind is a
terrible thing to lose to jealousy and envy; don't think
even Dr. Malone has a prescription for that in the board room.

Misallocation of district and taxpayer resources: 34 out of 77 elective classses at the high school had less than 30 students, more than a few had multiple classes. IE: Children's Literature,
2 classes - 27 total students, Entrepreneurship, 2 classes - 20 total students, etc., etc.
As the man who led our school district as high school principal for 13 years, Ron Malone held a special place of trust, authority, and influence in our community; now conclusions of his performance reviews which are open public records, prove that Mr. Malone ran this high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand. This tactic robbed resources from areas of greater need in the district. Those who suffered the most were the gifted and those in need of early intervention; yielding results
for our school district of "D" grade on gifted intervention and "C" grade on the lowest 20% in achievement from state. What a waste of taxpayers money and student resources!
But No More Status Quo Malone!
Mr. Malone has only been retired since June 30, 2013, and
we are already on our way putting our students first with our school tax dollars...
Number of Dual College Credit Classes availabel when Mr. Malone retired - 0 -
Number of Dual College Credit Classes added AFTER Mr. Malone retired June 30, 2013 - 6 -
Let's stay the course AND build on the progress
made in the past two years of our reform minded
philosophy of Students First While Maintaining
Can Mr. Malone met the challenge of accountability to ALL community Taxpayers as
as Team player among our BOE Professionals and
school district leaders?
#29347 Nov 21, 2013
Not implying that at all. Maybe 35% is justified? Maybe it isn't. Just wondering how charging 35% "helps the children"? Isn't that what it is all about on this blog?

The above quote is from October 2011, during the school board campaign of pro-union school board candidate, Lisa Babb, VS
the Children's First Budgeting candidates, David Petroni and
Although David Petroni and Jim Rigano were elected as our next two board representatives in November 2011, Lisa Babb and pro-union
activists continues even "Today and in the Future" to lobby "status quo" in the board room for Ron Malone's vote for
revenge AGAINST our school districts winning agenda of putting students best interest first with our school tax dollars,
maintaining QUALITY classroom courses and highly qualified classroom teachers, while living within the guidelines of
our children's first budgeting five year forecast; staying on course raising the bar for ALL students AND teachers.
Guess it's true that "everything OLD of PAST November 2011,
is PRESENT today and in the future of our students' 21st
Century classroom education.
Stay Alert Voters! Taxpayers must hold our new board members,
including Ron Malone, ACCOUNTABLE to TAXPAYERS, holding ALL
board members to the current boards CONTRACT of Renewal levy
saving taxpayers $6.5 million...with NO NEW TAXES!
SOS TO STATUS QUO MALONE... A DEAL IS A DEAL! IF YOU DON'T
ALIGN WITH THE OEA UNION ACTIVISTS WAR OF WORDS AGAINST
SPRINGBORO TAXPAYERS EMOTIONALLY BLACKMAILING TAXPAYERS FOR NEW MONEY TO RUN OUR EDUCATION BUSINESS... then Springboro Taxpayers will not engage in the business of your "insanely popular" politics of personal destruction AGAINST you as an elected

"Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that ..but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing."
-William Butler Yeats
....in the direction of balance!
Board of Education members are elected to represent the community in the school district.
The board is elected to balance the interests of students, parents, taxpayers, and employees. Many school boards lack balance because they are comprised of people with more allegiance to maintaining a specific establishment than to the greater cause.
In Springboro, blance has been restored. With a new administrative team, the Springboro school district has adopted a mission to "accelerate student achievement and support qualified staff with a balanced budget."
These are not emply words: They summarise actions.
Together, our school leaders have achieved a
blanced budget. Look at Today and the Future:
We are on the right course,
with our school districts' new reform minded
philosophy, but those who oppose putting our students first are forced to re-think their long held beliefs of the past, and still cling in
"FEAR" to their status quo failed practices, and
still spread False Evidence Appearing Real in protests to "re-instate Ron Malone" keeping it just the way it was in the year 2000, when Mr. Malone's professional experience was a better
"fit" with our status quo school district
Special Thanks And Appreciation are due our current board members and new school distirct leaders for the amazing progress made in just the past two years! Special Thanks and Appreciation
are due our school board budget/finance committee members, Mr. David Petroni and Mr. Jim Rigano!
Please know that Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners fully support your Children's first budgeting agenda, doing what's right for all our school children and our community. Your hard work and tireless service helping Springboro be a better place to live, work, learn, and play sports
is appreciated! Thank you for helping keep our schools and community BOTH safe AND affordable!
#29350 Nov 21, 2013
And how is increasing teachers pay, and reduced benefit costs helping the children ? Are you saying teachers will work harder only if they are paid more ? How is that helping the children ?
#29351 Nov 21, 2013
lol! How can you possibly forget to give credit where credit is due?
Certainly the majority of these 50+ high school students began learning proper study habits before they graduated from Pampers pull-ups. How does this happen? It's apPARENT!
#29352 Nov 21, 2013
So get rid of the schools and the teachers and we'll all save lot's of tax money. Plus we wouldn't have to deal with KRP on the BOE!
With that logic we could get rid of every college!
Although I don't know too many parents that could handle Algebra 2 without a refresher, let alone AP classes. Sorry, I'll let you get back to your physics paper now.
(I've come to expect this from Pickerington, you must have been home schooled!)
#29353 Nov 21, 2013
Credit goes to the student, teachers, parents and those of us who fund their education in that order.(I don't think parents spend 7 hours a day teaching thier kids after school).

If you're going to quote, please get it right and in context.

ah...feeling a little sensitive there, are ya now? You sound like you may need counseling. Hopefully, it's in your union contract.
#29360 Nov 21, 2013
Forget about Bill Clinton's physical and emotional abuse of women... let's just celebrate the closing of Ron Malone's
SHS union shop and dreadful misallocation of our school district
and Taxpayer Resources. We can say goodbye to those bad old
good old boy days, now that Ron Malone is not in high school
anymore running the high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose
skills were not in demand. This tactic ROBBED resources from
areas of greater need in the district. Those who suffered the most were the gifted and thos in need of early intervention.
The true history of a man through official documents has now proven that it is not as golden as you have been led to believe;
yielding a "black" mark on our excellent with distinction school district of a "D" grade on gifted intervention and "C" grade on the lowest 20% in achievement from state.
As status quo Malone moves on up to the board room, our future looks much brighter now that his narrow tunnel vision can be broadened by our reform-minded board members and community taxpayers.
By proven record of Malone's past employment in our school district, Taxpayers can expect Malone's resistance to change
and the need for Taxpayers to repeatedly request of Mr. Malone
to utilize his ABILITY to get on board with our current board's
winning agenda of Children's First Budgeting with our school tax dollars.
#29361 Nov 21, 2013
Obviously you continue to not get the point, Mr. Obvious.
Of course,(effective) teachers are extremely important in each and every student's overall education. Almost without exception, the students who rise to graduate near or at the top of their respective class are the students with parents / guardians with tremendous work ethic. These are the type of parents who take time to teach their children how to read and write before they ever set foot in kindergarten. These are the type of parents who know how to inspire. These are the type of parents who are literate enough to know the correct spelling of the adjective ...'their'.
#29362 Nov 21, 2013
It is stupid of the FEARFUL ones to distort the proven FACTS,
by spreading lies and False Evidence Appearing Real, AGAINST
the progress made in the last two years by our current board's reform-minded Children's First philosophy.
No debate about it; We can't just invest in status quo.
We Must Utilize Our School District's Leadership Ability
to INVEST in a broader VISION of Raising the Bar for Our
Students AND Teachers.
Malone NOW has NO CHOICE in the board room, but to get on board with our Students First 21st Century classroom education!
Fresh Ideas have allowed our district to sustain itself in an uncertain economy with NO new money required.
Community Taxpayers will continue to CHALLENGE the status quo where need be... and that IS a good thing!
