The parsimonious amounts that are paid school board members,$125/meeting, about $80/meeting is hardly the financial incentive most would accept manage a $50,000,000 corporation. I am sure that no one on that board is doing this for the money, except of course the retirees on the board.
Oh yes, of COURSE the retirees are doing it for the money. I mean, they were in such a selfish profession.

The retirees are about to save our schools from the claws of the Tea Party. It's about time!

The following flyer went out to all Springboro Schools teachers and staff earlier this week.
A "gift" from "your employer" Springboro schools?
MY ARSE !!
The correct title for this notice should be:
"To the already over-entitled teachers and staff of Springboro Community City Schools, compliments of Springboro Area Taxpayers "
Someone should pick up the phone and call Coffman YMCA to tell them Springboro Schools is cheating on them!
__________
ANNOUNCING A NEW FITNESS CLASS FOR SPRINGBORO STAFF!
A gift from your employer...AT NO COST TO YOU!
STARTING MARCH 10 2014
FROM 4:15PM - 5:05PM
EVERY MONDAY AFTERNOON
My name is __________ and I own a company in Centerville called __________ I offer corporate wellness classes and programs (as well as private one-on-one training), and I am proud to announce that a new fitness class will be coming this March to the the awesome teachers at Springboro City Schools!
This class will consist of body weight training, requiring you to bring only a mat, water, a towel if you'd like, yourself, and a positive attitude! We will be doing a wide range of exercises, all tailored to your group and each individual attendee. Knee problems? Previous shoulder injury? Just nervous about working out? No problem. I will work with you so you get the best workout possible, give you suggestions of alternate exercises as needed, and make your experience fun and successful. Everyone will work at their own pace...just do what you can! The more you come, the easier it gets and the harder you can work! All you have to do is show up!
Start your week off right with a 50-minute workout, right after work, IN THE MULTI-MEDIA ROOM OF SPRINGBORO INTERMEDIATE.
"All you have to do is show up?"........ That's funny!

Isn't that Number One on the basic union negotiations of the SEA requirements for teachers demanding Big Pay Raises during the next round of teachers contract negotiating?

According to a district document, Springboro high school health teacher Molly Wray used contact information improperly obtained from old parent permission slips to send a mass email to Springboro High School graduates last August, encouraging them to vote in the upcoming school board election. She also encouraged the graduates to access her Facebook page, where she posted endorsements for three candidates opposing the conservative candidates.
Springboro Treasurer Terrah Floyd acknowledges that the student information Wray used to send her email was protected under Ohio state law and the federal government’s Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). In other words, Wray illegally copied email addresses from confidential district records.
Despite the improper use of protected information for personal and political reasons, the only disciplinary action Springboro school leaders apparently took against Wray was to place a “letter of understanding” in her personnel file that gently reminds the veteran educator to maintain a “professional” relationship with former students.
Wray’s email to students last August mentioned three separate reasons for writing. The first two involved school and alumni news. The third item – which accounted for 50 percent of the email – dealt with a district levy renewal vote and the hotly contested Nov. 5 school board races.
“It is VERY important to vote on November 5th if you are still a Springboro resident,” Wray wrote, according to a copy of the email provided to EAGnews.“YOUR VOTE COUNTS and just may be the difference maker on November 5th.”
The veteran educator then provided graduates with step-by-step instructions for when, where and how they could register to vote in the election. She also encouraged readers to “share this with your Springboro contacts so that (they) see it, use it, and share it too! THANKS!!!”
While Wray stopped short of endorsing any candidates in the August email, she did encourage former students to look her up on Facebook, where she posted two items on the day before the election formally endorsing the three candidates who went on to win their races.
After the results were announced on election night, Wray posted a “thank you” to Springboro voters for electing the three candidates and passing the levy renewal.
District leaders placed a “letter of understanding” in Wray’s personnel file late last month that very gently reminded the veteran educator that district employees are encouraged “to maintain professional relationships with prior students” and “to ensure that the individuals contacted have given permission for you to contact them.”
District officials apparently view the email as a harmless reminder containing a class reunion announcement and a nonpartisan reminder to vote in the November election. They obviously saw no harm or foul when she encouraged the potential voters to refer to her Facebook site for more details – or recommendations.
Is there any way, through public records request, to learn how many of these names were
used? And is there any way to compare this list to the 400 or so names of the Boro Alumni
protest letter sent to the Board (and the newspapers) demanding the Board to respond to
the newspaper to announce cancellation of the Constitution Course?

Ron Malone for S-U-R-E is doing quite well and already up to his old status quo politics of personal destruction against his professional peers in the board room, using the voice

Just curious - Who are the Springboro school leaders who are responsible for reviewing the actions of teacher Molly Wray? Would Molly Wray be held accountable for this poor job performance on her teacher evaluations by the Principal of the building in which she teaches?

We certainly could tolerate no more balanced budgets with surpluses, any more levies that reduce our taxes, reduced pay to participate fees, reduced school fees, restored busing, building maintenance that maintains our property, money and resources finally directed towards our gifted and early intervention programs in elementary schools, adding an ACT class, a true emphasis on early college credit programs through the high school, balancing our class sizes, and strengthening our curriculum, while upgrading our technology plan with 1100 new computers, laptops to every teacher, and a wireless plan in every building that ties it all together.

You are right, what could we possibly have been thinking to allow the previous board to do all of those things?

I raise serious issues, real concerns, actual points of contention in the debate and this is the best you can come up with on the subjects.

Way to advance the discourse.

Why do you not address the points I raised and tell us why you think these are bad ideas?

1) Balanced budgets with surpluses
2) Renewal levy that reduced our taxes,
3) Reduced pay to participate fee
4) Reduced school fees
5) Restored busing
6) Restored building maintenance program that maintains our property
7) Money and resources finally directed towards our gifted and early intervention programs in elementary schools
8) Added an ACT class
9) Placed true emphasis on early college credit programs through the high school
10) Balancing our class sizes
11) Strengthening our curriculum
12) Upgrading our technology plan with 1100 new computers
13) Laptops to every teacher
14) Wireless plan in every building that ties it all together.
15) And of course I forgot the last board's Budget and Finance Committee led by David Petroni and Jim Rigano that finally brought to light the long term looting of the Boosters that was allowed to fester under the watchful eye of Mr. Malone and Mr Holtrey.

I may be full of scatological reserves, but facts remain facts.

Come listen to the story of teacher Molly Wray
Who met her students at the door with a smile every day!
Till when one day, the students’ names lost their faces;
‘Cause Molly Wray was secure in high political places,
She collectively gathered her students’ records of ID;
Insanely supporting the political campaign of MSA!

Go Molly! Go Molly! MSA All The Way!
