in the direction of common sense.
For too long, the Springboro district appeared to work very well, but it lacked clear direction. With no plan for textbooks, technology, capital improvements, buses and more, there was no larger curse charted for our schools. There was no common sense.
Educate Springboro's common sense approach does not strip the district of its traditions or diversity. It does not ignore its accomplishments and honors, including "excellent with Distinction." It simply gives us a unifying direction that extends beyond any individual,
building, or year.
A year ago, our district faced a sort of "perfect storm" with needs for everything from buses and books to technology and staffing coming to the surface at the same time. Through good management and some good fortune, our once rudderless ship emerged from that storm with clear leadership and direction. Clearly there are still challenges, but we are moving in the direction of putting Children First.
In the November 14, 2013 issue of the Springboro Star Press, Charles Anderson said one of his goals while on the board is to continue the fiscal responsibility and to focus on the students and their needs, to make sure they have the opportunities for future education or to be gainfully employed. Sounds to me like Mr. Anderson is already on board with our current
board members, Mr. Petroni and Mr. Rigano; and that is the BOE majority with the financial expertise and business-wise leadership skills needed to prompt our two retired educators,
Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey (however reluctant the two may be) to stay on this new curse and move in the direction of Common Sense, Ethics, and Sound financial decisions for
our children, schools and community.
