Where is the outrage in this community against this corruption and hypocrisy inside our Springboro Schools?<quoted text>
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.
Todd Petrey's arrogant hypocrisy is unbelievable!
Did you know that "A Proposal for Community Engagement: Stating the Beliefs, Mission and
Vision for Springboro Community City Schools" is currently underway at a cost of about
$12,000 to Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners?
Guess this MollyGate proves that our school administrators "Beliefs, Mission and Vision"
is to just blindly look the other way; and refuse to see that one of their own, Molly Wray, has gone astray.
People in this community should ask themselves: Does Corruption and Hypocrisy in our Springboro Schools Represent the Majority of our citizens; OR, could it be that these only represent a majority of the MSA/SEA Team and their supporters "collective philosophy?"
