"Tax overload"
(page 6)
Taking buses away from high school students is simply wrong. Of course we all know the school board and Dr. Baker only do so to impose a hardship on the high school families of the district in order to bribe them to vote for the levy the next time around. Morally it is wrong for the district to say it supports education and then take the buses away. Students who are late to class should not be penalized in any way if the district does this. Maybe they can eliminate the fluff electives and instead fully fund transportation. Does this also mean high school sports will not get buses to events either? That would seem fair. If the students can't use the buses for getting to school than the sports programs should not be allowed to use them either.
Personally I think the community should have input on where cuts are made so it is done reasonably and not as a bribe. This NO to the levy was way over due anyway and I know it was supported by many parents of students in the district.
Now that the SEA has taken control of the MSA board members, re-instating all the failed practices of the past, wheels are now set in motion to hire an OSBA facilitator to brainwash the community into agreeing that the "board" should pick up the cost of funding athletics and increase taxes to provide additional parking spaces for the SHS!

Personally, I think the community should stay alert and be reminded that when Staff starts talking about what the "Board should fund" that translation into union speak is the only language known by the MSA/SEA team and that for sure is "We Need A Levy For the Kids!"

Worth Repeating -- How disappointing it is that a union classroom teachers would use the Springboro school records to violate our Springboro students privacy rights that should have been protected by Molly Wray choosing to respect and obey the authority of the law.
Where's the Boro pride in Molly Wray's example of role modeling poor citizenship as a trusted authority figure and professional educator?
What Molly Wray did to use information on old district premission slips to contact Boro alumni and lure them onto her pro-MSA website before last November's election was certainly illegal according to state and federal FERPA privacy law.

That happened last November. Why are we still posting about it?

Because neither Supt. Todd Petrey nor HR Mgr. Vincent possessed enough backbone to stand up to pressure from the SEA. Neither Todd nor Vincent punished Wray the way they should have. They should have set examples for this district's children. Precedents dictate Wray should have recieved a suspension.

People, in case you don't realize it by now, this district is being run by special interests.
On his own,Todd Petrey exerts no real power; he is essentially a puppet exercising the interests of Ron Malone and the SEA.

Let's stay focused on the illegal actions of Springboro Teacher Molly Wray who "gave up" Springboro Students ID privacies rights for promotion of a political campaign of two retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey, who are now elected to the Springboro Board of Education. That's not only illegal, it is unethical, and disgraceful behavior. How soon do you think we will forget that? Simply put....Never.

So what if people did "give topix up" for lent? That action would be neither illegal, unethical, nor disgraceful. Neither would it distract from the truth about Molly Wray giving up students privacy rights.

Mollygate is merely a symptom of a much bigger problem that's now developing In Springboro schools right under this community's nose.

Your brand of blind ignorance demonstrates the type of adults flushed out to vote by the Malone-Stuckey-Anderson campaign.

18-year-old Boro seniors? Recent Boro grads? They're young. Generally, they get a pass for falling for Molly Wray's email venus fly trap. 18-year-olds and recent Boro grads get a pass for generally being naive and falling for MSA's campaign platform of presenting former principal Ron Malone as being too "insanely popular". No one understands this more than SHS health teacher Molly Wray. Not only did Molly Wray break FERPA privacy law (as confirmed by this district's treasurer), Wray took advantage of their naivete and perceived past attachments to former principal Malone in order to garner an unconfirmed number of votes for the MSA campaign.

So, assuming you're an adult....what's YOUR excuse for being naive and/or ignorant?

You guys just keep justifying your bad behavior and illegal behavior. You don't care as long as you get more of our money. You are lazy, greedy, self richous, jealous people that are anti every American principle. You believe it is OK to take from anyone but do not give yourself. Check out who is giving these guys money. You will see unions pay for those that ignore laws, take from families and our seniors just to line their own pockets. Wade field should be renamed.

I see that Springboro tresurer wrote that is unfortunate that Molly Wray violated student protected information and used this information for personal use. So what all protected information did she use and who did she sell or give it to? Did she get it to the ACORN groups or S. Bindeman where the democrat central committee then used it? Is this how our kids are being targeted? Should the results of the Nov. election be overturned? Use of illegally gotten private information should be grounds for reversal of the election. I hope the prosecutor is looking into this use of private information.

Where is that list of private information of our students now? So how many teachers think it is OK to violate FURPA, a federal privacy law and Ohio revised codes, ohio laws? What did the district do about it?
When someone uses name calling they have something to hide. So it is easy to figure out who is calling names here, MSA campaign, Wray family and other good ole boys.

So what happened? Any news on when the levy will be? It is what this group was elected to do right? Mrs. Molly Wray got her peeps elected for a raise. Ya a larger raise than she got this year and next. I guess 6 % is not enough for some people even though the median Springboro household saw 1% increased incomes, some inside the district want MOOOOre.

So Petrey and Vincent did nothing to her for violating our privacy and Ohio law and Federal laws? So are these laws only applied to us poor private citizens? Inside the district are more protections than inside Obamas kingdom. It is all the same. Of course Judge lannery yo head out of Wade hinny. Flannery cold no longer ignore truth when so many testified about the violations. Man you have to slap them in the face beore they will act on illegal behavior. How many citizens have been harrased or violated by the Wade family? Lets name another park after them, lol. Discrased in Springboro, Ed Wade, sell those hundeds of unused unneeded acres the Township owns purchased from the Gabbard family at top dollar and pay us back our money, our land and our rghts. Rename Wade field. I expect a township tax refund this year.

There has been 2 crimes committed in connection to Mollygate...
1) Molly Wray's violation of state and Federal student privacy laws
2) Springboro Schools administration not suspending Molly Wray

__________

The following is a slice of a Springboro schools document which is available to the general public...

"...Ms. Wray unfortunately decided to use protected student information under R.C.3319.321 and FERPA 20 USC 1232g for personal use. The Administration of the Springboro Community City School District discussed this matter with Ms. Wray and disciplined Ms. Wray in the matter they believed was appropriate..."

Terrah Floyd, Treasurer
Springboro Community City Schools

______

So what was the manner of discipline Todd Petrey and Lee Vincent believed was "appropriate" for Molly Wray's violation of state and federal student privacy laws? A verbal lecture and a "letter of understanding" in Molly Wray's personnel file, to be removed after six months? For a flagrant offense involving a health teacher who lured recent Boro alumni to go to her personal website by informing them about a.... "really important election for the school board".... only to have web-browsers discover her personal endorsement of Malone Stuckey & Anderson....... UNBELIEVABLE!

One of the first things every higher-level administrator of any given school district has to understand is the decisions they make set examples / precedents for their subordinates to follow. This is true not only in decision-making, but also in setting discipline patterns. In the exerpt (above), the treasurer of Springboro Community City Schools, Terrah Floyd, confirms that Springboro high school health teacher violated both state of Ohio as well as federal FERPA student privacy law.

In receiving a "letter of understanding" to be removed after six months, Molly Wray received nothing more than a slap on the wrist for her flagrant violation of trust. In being weak in their discipline, Springboro administrators have not only set a poor example directly in front of the eyes of Springboro High School students, Springboro admins have also set a terrible precedent for our students' and alumnis' privacy to be flagrantly abused and misused again in the future.

Good Golly Miss Molly!

Molly Wray, a SEA Certified employee violates the Laws set up to protect Springboro Students privacy rights and ID safety; Molly Wray gets a bad girl bad girl slap on the wrist from the the good ole union boys Super. Now the good ole union boys supporters are badgering Springboro citizens to just shut up and move on.......

Would that not be in the direction of broader paths of corruption, deception, denial, and slandering lies for S-U-R-E??

And why the double standard for the SEA Classified employee who violated the Law that protects our students safety from school bus drivers showing up for work intoxicated and getting charged with a DUI? Did this school employee who violated State law that protects our students from drunk drivers not Resign the position of bus driver?

Why is our school district administrator enabling Molly Wray to repeat this "above the law" behavior pattern; instead of doing the right thing for our school children and community by holding Molly Wray accountable, allowing her to offer her resignation?
