It does not matter what she said to these kids. She gathered a list of graduate e mails for 4-5 years. She never contacted them in the past but used this chance to say, oh hello, and make sure you vote in November and BTW go to my facebook if you want to know who to vote for. The point is she violated two laws doing this and the district knows it and did nothing. Now we expect ODE or prosecutor to do something about this breach of confideniality. WE should see resignations from anyone that protects this mis use of protected student infoprmation for personal gain. Molly and Malone and Petrey should resign.<quoted text>
So sorry. I don't have Molly's Wray's email address. The people to look for with Molly Wray's email stored in their computer are Boro alumnI, approximately between the ages of 18-22.

This appears to be the kick off for the newest rounds of school levy campaigns. Apparently a district with a surplus, in spite of a gamed curriculum with an over abundance of fun electives vs core courses, will be needing more money to enhance the largesse of the teacher's union.
The first move is to "canvass" the levy supporters to divine their wants and desires for the school system. This is done most simply by packing the committees and group leaders with levy supporters from a small but distinct vocal minority.
How can this go wrong for the community?
Citizens for Civic Renewal proposal:
Springboro Community City Schools are at a crossroadsand as the districts leader you look for a vision and mission that will unite not only the school district but the community. Most professionally facilitated planning processes can build a workable vision/mission/values statement. What will make a long-term difference to the district and community is whether the planning process can also heal old wounds, reconcile differing points of view, and build the trusting relationships essential to making that vision a reality.
CCR uses the visioning process to build a cohesive community that supports the schools because it understands the role of education in the larger mission of the community.
1. Build inspired consensus for the districts identity (values), vision (future), and mission (role).
2. Reconcile differences among stakeholders and build community commitment to the vision.
3. Create relationships and dialog structures that will maintain community cohesiveness.
The process depends on three key sets of people: a small Core Team that staffs the work; a larger group of Community Stewards who reflect the communitys diversity and serve as project ambassadors; and the community at largeeveryone who is touched by the school district, both within and outside of the district.
At the beginning of the process, we must first ensure that the Core Team and Stewards have the right members and are committed to the process. Then we host a public event to introduce the process to the community, get feedback, and generate buy-in and buzz for the process. With this data, the Core Team and Stewards will then work to implement the three Content Phases, an iterative community engagement process that gathers key data that will be used to build the districts identity, vision and mission.
The process is detailed below, and would take from 8-12 months to complete.

This is very interesting. So we saw Lisa Babb (teacher) along with many Springboro teachers, Mrs. Malone (teacher) walking out now many times on Springboro representatives. They are totally intolerant, self righteous, entitled, left wing bullies. They are who teaches our kids. They think they are amaaaazing.
Funny, these are the very people teaching our students to be tolerant!! Tolerant of what? Tolerant of what they are saying but totally intolerant of any other speaker. What poor examples of community, and teachers and now I see Lisa Babb is on the Community Mission, Vision Committee that Todd Petrey put together. Do you really thin they will be tolerant of any input but theirs? This committee is an insult to Springboro. This committee is stacked with levy promoters, a whos who of NFSS only. This phony committee is levy promotion committee and this outside person is a long time friend of Petrey. The $12,000 friend is another waste of money given to a buddy from Princeton and Lakota where Petrey worked before he came here. This person helped Lakota and Princeton work over their communities for more money. It worked in Princeton and failed in Lakota.

I would venture to guess most people with any education have a solid idea as" how stupid you really are". The babble I read in here just validates that fact. You speak of respect but whenever anyone has an opinion different than yours they are labeled or judged "Nuts" or "clueless". Just proves most on this board lack any type of integrity. Label this offering "nuts" or "clueless" and that will prove the point. LT Out
#30976 Mar 18, 2014
I would respect your communication more if you had the wherewithal to describe and or refute a point of contention. As it stands, I see nothing other than biting venom towards another for commenting on a valid point of interest. Is it so hard to have an alternate opinion that can stand up in debate?
The writer's point that the commission to restore civic civility seems rather stacked with those who invited and participated in many uncivil acts.
#30977 Mar 18, 2014
The writer's point that the commission to restore civic civility seems rather stacked with those who invited and participated in many uncivil acts does appear to detract from the legitimacy of this unity .
#30978 Mar 18, 2014
Good Golly Miss Molly! Wray, that is! What were you thinking when you committed a crime against our Springboro Students, and against the law, in your zeal to promote the school board campaign of two retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey?
As Lt. Dan say in above post:
"I would venture to guess most people with any education have a solid idea as" how stupid you really are."
#30981 Mar 18, 2014
Doug, thanks for the heads up!
I've been reading and hearing about the development of district core team with Todd Petrey and Karen DeRosa's efforts to recruit "stewards" (a.k.a. stooges) from around the district. All of this amounts to nothing more than a carefully crafted lead-in to force a vote another school levy onto the ballot; a levy that WON'T be needed for at least 3 more years if the current board maintains the fiscally responsible pattern the previous BOE maintained.
Are you listening, Ron?
#30983 Mar 18, 2014
OMG! Are you kidding?!?
"Insanely Popular" Ron Malone? Resign from the BOE as a result of MOLLYGATE?
They'd have to call a convoy of paramedics in order to peel the hoardes of broken-hearted and decimated students off the floors of SHS !!
#30984 Mar 18, 2014
This looks like a duck, walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, maybe its a duck. The usual suspects show up for all of these support the schools programs that always seem to turn into another cry for more money to help the kids. If I have learned nothing from watching this hocum go on for many years, it is all a grand setup to justify the unjustifiable. We had a surplus, how fast can they blow through that? Then they will cry poverty. The district did not need $35 million six years ago, as is proven by the surplus we now enjoy off of the same old tax revenues. Shouldn't Neighbors for Springboro Schools be footing this nonsense instead of the taxpayers?
#30985 Mar 18, 2014
In Todd Petrey's $12,000 Contract Proposal for Community Engagement presentation, it is stated: Our district is a $50 million organization operating without a vision developed with stakeholders.
Really, Mr. Petrey? Could it be that some stakeholders see our $130,000 School Superintendent now operating with the same old Tunnel Vision of status quo past failed practices?
Why should we blindly follow Jeff Stec's CREATION of Our identity and our community's "collective philosophy?" As an individual taxpayer and responsible civic minded citizen, I do not have an identity crisis; and I already have a clear Belief in my Mission for eternity.
People in this community should find out more about this community organizer, Jeff Stec, that Mr. Petrey is willing to blindly follow. Mr. Petrey doesn't even live in our community, doesn't pay school taxes in our community, and doesn't prove himself to have sound judgment in choosing leaders, like Stephanie Bindemann for Sure, to shape "Policy" for our school district. It appears to some that Mr. Petrey is the one who has an "identity crisis" since he doesn't know that a School Superintendent is hired by a community of taxpayers to manage our kid's education; not to micro-manage "We the People."
#30986 Mar 19, 2014
Todd Petrey, Superintendent of Springboro Schools, is telling all Springboro Stakeholders that he is now putting himself "out there" through the voice of professionally-trained
community organizer, Jeff Stec, to find collective answers to the question: Where will education be in ten years? Where do we want Springboro Schools to be in ten years?
No doubt our union classroom professional educator, Molly Wray, is focused on only Six Months from now, when Mr. Petrey's "bad girl, bad girl" report in her employment records (for violating our students privacy rights) will finally be removed; leaving nothing behind except the loss of trust and influence of community-wide Springboro stakeholders.
#30987 Mar 19, 2014
OK why did this community elect board members if they were not to represent us? So if they are elected to represent why are they using $12,000 of our hard earned dollars to dupe us? Why wouldn't Todd and others (elected) sit in one spot and let citizens talk to them. We pay them, we elect them, they hire a $130,000 employee so why another $12,000? Why appoint the levy campaigners of NFSS to stack the Community engegement committee if you weren't doing your buddies favors. Good job looking up the associations between Petrey and Stec. So we are paying a levy/community organizer to work us over. Springboro are you fools or did you learn from past practices of harming kids to give to adults?
#30988 Mar 19, 2014
Wow this is identicle to 2008 levy years when we were told and "asked" what we wanted for the future of students. The same old this money will be used to build a strong school system and or keep us excellent. All the while, 23% of our grads did not meet the minimum competencies to get into an Ohio college or university, we were failing our gifted students, taking away busing, gifted services, special ed, field trips, increasing costs to parents, no textbooks being ordered, buildings ignored so on then found out that the district and NFSS were lying to us and hoarding/hiding money. All of this was to prove we needed the money.
Come on guys lets save our district $12,000.
We want you to tell us the truth.
We want you to not take our money when you do not need it.
We want you to put the needs, safety and privacy of students first.
We want you to stop protecting bad employees.
WE want you to pay and benefit like the rest of this community sees.
We want you to teach more hours and more days per year.
We want you to stop indoctrinating our children with the socialist agenda.
We want you to teach real not revised, American history.
We want you to use your time to add professional development not take it from students education hours.
We want you to use market trends and projections for class and curriculum decisions.
We want you to give our kids classical literatre and not biograpgies of hollywood celebs and home repair instructional mannuals to read.
We want you to teach our children to think using their intelect not their emotions.
There no need for three tiers of "input" from the levy lovers. No need to waste $12,000 on an outside buddy to take from textbook orders or three supplementals to pay for more of the same levy works.
This is a start ;ets see if the Committees come up with anything like these.
#30989 Mar 19, 2014
look at his record
failed the high school students as stated many times in the federal review of or high school reports =TAV 2010 and WCESC 2012. They are public documents you can ask for them.
Allow his staff to take protected student information for personal use. Allows his teachers and coaches to violate use of district property for personal gain,(summer camps).
Don't see him much at board meetings or leaves by 9 while meetings continue without him.
He speaks at the last board meeting saying that hiring a retired district employee does not take a job that an unemployed person could have. LOL Wake up please
He just Voted to employ retired district employees. Anyone unemployed out there?
His wife along with his supporters can't stomach anyones opinions other than their own and walk out on everyone speaking while they teach our children "tolerance". What an embarrassmentand a bunch of hipocrits.
Todd these are the people you put on the community engagement committee, just curious, is there really anyone there from the community or are they all NFSS and SURE?
#30990 Mar 19, 2014
The last twelve months..... revisited.
"Insanely popular" former principal Ron Malone gradually morphs into the Pied Piper of Springboro, taking political advantage of his close relationships with former SHS students. At the 2013 commencement, Malone pauses repeatedly to take full advantage of each and every opportunity for audience applause. Fully realizing the political significance of the occasion, Ron Malone envions each and every soon-to-be Boro graduate in front of him as being "Yes Malone" votes for the upcoming school board election on November 5th.
In a joint effort to unseat Kelly Kohls from the school board, Dave Stuckey and Charles Anderson join with Malone. In retrospect, it really didn't matter whose names were listed below Malone's on the black yard signs. The other two candidates' names were placed on these signs in order to fill voids in black space. From the get-go, everyone in this community knew Malone was going to win a board seat. Why? It was, and still is clear that Ron Malone specializes in brainwashing Boro students into believing he's the next best thing to the Second Coming. Then what do Boro's kids do? They come marching home from school and tell their parents that principal Ron Malone is the next best thing to the Second Coming.(Never mind that Malone has no legitimate plan to improve our students educations.) Anderson ends up receiving the highest vote tally, but this is only because of an 11th hour endorsement from Educate Springboro.
Skip to the present...
Illegal activitity by a high school teacher (a.k.a. "Mollygate") has brought to light a distinct possibility that last fall's school board election may have been in fact, something less than legitimate.
Citizens of this community are watching our newly elected school board members waste thousands of dollars to hire outsiders to come here to speak about subjects...subjects which SHOULD BE second nature to any effective school board member!
OH!... My bad! Please pardon my assumption! I assumed Boro's citizens were collectively wise enough to choose three (3) school board members who would be "effective" enough so that the district wouldn't have to hire outside facilitators!!
Here are the facts. Five years ago, this district was a financial mess in virtually every way. In 2009, we as a community began electing a new style of leadership, which in turn began to turn this district around. Now this district is on solid ground. With wise budget management, there is no reason Springboro Community City schools should seek new levy money until at least 2017. Thanks largely to Malone's Pied Piperdom, last fall we as a community were completely fooled. The 3 people we elected onto the board are sitting on the board now with little dollar signs glowing in the pupils of their eyes. What we're going to see for the next two years is an endless dog and pony show of the SEA /teachers/ administration creating perceived needs, and bringing these perceived needs in front of the Malone-dominated BOE. If/ when there is resistance (and there WILL BE resistance) that's when the ..."Oh, pity the kids, let's launch a levy for them!...mantra will begin.
I'm guessing the "create-needs,and-then-fi ll-them-with-our-tax-dollars " Boro liberals are currently aiming for a levy date of May 2015.
#30992 Mar 19, 2014
don't know how ? Easy, the Springboro school system is the biggest employer in the community. When Kohls got elected, her and two other school board members put the brakes on the reckless spending of the Baker regime. SO...instead of teachers getting outrageous pay increases and benefits while the rest of us suffered with no pay raises and layoffs..they , the school union followers had to suck it up . Now, the unions have rallied the teachers and union backed thugs and we will now slide back into the Baker era mode of wanting levies for this and that. It's going to get real ugly next year when the new school squanders the surplus and starts crying for more money.
#30993 Mar 19, 2014
Well, it's not like some within this community didn't see this coming from Petrey!
Case in point: an excerpt from page # 1316 of this Topix thread which was posted by "yes man" on August 23, 2013......
"ON THE FACE OF TODD PETREY EXISTS TWO MOUTHS, EACH OF WHICH SPEAKS AND REPEATS THE AGENDA OF THE PERSON IN FRONT OF IT."
#30994 Mar 19, 2014
It's now March 2014, and we all know what that means....
Todd Petrey and Jeff Stec, they're TWO faces in ONE.
On each side of Todd's face exists the MSA and the SEA; with the BOE president in the middle, repeating the status quo agenda of past failed practices
On one side of Todd's face exists the MSA and the SEA on the other; with the BOE president in the middle, rubber-stamping for the Union their status quo agenda of past failed practices.
#30995 Mar 19, 2014
Isn't aiming for a levy date of May 2015 the Belief of Mr. Petrey's Tunnel Vision of putting the re-emphasis on the increased dollar value of the union classroom teachers, even to the detriment of physical elements of our children's education (including safety and curriculum needs)?
