Good points. I am not at all surprised by your final comment. In fact, it's exactly what I expected to happen from this newly elected union-first school board. Say goodbye to "children first" budgeting!

How long until we hear the school district needs more new money?

How long until we hear threats to cut services?

How long until we hear threats to raise pay to participate fees, as well as a host of other onerous threats?

Bottom line ... how long before the new levy advertising campaign starts?

For S-U-R-E Number One For the Money "Jeff Stec Advertising Campaign" has been in effect since Mr. Petrey's Renewed Vision Presentation at the February 1, 2014, BOE workshop meeting. Mr. Petrey has taken total control of our taxpayer-funded $50 million school budget; and is telling us that our School Superintendent has no "Mission of Vision" and has now employed Jeff Stec to engage our Springboro Community of Unionism in "stating the Beliefs, Mission and Vision for Springboro Community City Schools."

The Dirty Deed of Board Votes 4-1 in favor of Jeff Stec has been signed, sealed and delivered in the Board room April 3, 2014; and the SEA War of Words Against Springboro Families and Taxpaying Homeowners is "Fully Blessed."

Mr. Petroni, thanks for your valiant attempt in attempting to attain a sensible compromise.
If Boro sports gets $250,000 it's logical equal capital be devoted to student education needs. The money to Boro athletics is MSA's payback to Boro Boosters for pain and suffering they endured, not unlike Boro administrators feeling sorry for Molly Wray after she'd received her (ahem) "punishment".
You don't need to be a rocket scientist to understand what's going on. Four months ago this district forecasted no need for a levy until at least 2017. What Malone Stuckey and Anderson are doing is classic liberal politics - create perceived needs, then proceed to fill these perceived needs by wasting money . Boro athletes and band members will benefit from this campaign payback but only by pennies on the dollar. The lion's share is going to end up in increased salaries and benefits for coaches.. plus extra cash for whoever they might need to pay off.
Jeff Stec's involvement is part of it too. Stec is all about Obviously this is part of MSA's set-up to create a "perceived need" for a levy by having as many "stewards" as possible dream up what-do-you-want-Springboro-to -be like-in-10-years "wish-lists" !!
$250,000 being pulled from the general fund is part of MSA's and Petrey's overall plan to spend the budget 'til the budget breaks. This is the precise opposite of Children First.

There were no guilty MSA consciences among Union First Board Members (to the detriment of our Children First) Charles Anderson, Ron Malone and Dave Stuckey in the April 3, 2014 board votes in favor of Jeff Stec's Waste of taxpayers time and money; only proverbial wisdom of words found in Proverbs 26:11: "Like a dog that returns to its vomit is a fool who reverts to his folly."

WHY did Kohls Petroni & Rigano make that decision?
They made that decision because key levels of fiscal accountability had disappeared from Boro Boosters in the wake of the Harves scandal. The board and top district admins knew the truth, well before the story broke in the papers about Springboro coaches funneling summer camp money thru their personal bank accounts.

It's all about accountability, and the lack thereof.
Last night, Springboro as a community witnessed plenty of "lack thereof".

Sadly many Springboro residents seem to be willing to sacrifice their children into oppression and despotism at the hands of our out of control Federal Government.
http://www.crazyhousereviews.com/2014/03/comm...
In my estimation the root problem is twofold...

1) Concerning education, there is lots of abject apathy within this, and other communities.
2) There's also a significant number of Springboro educators who are themselves brainwashed and indoctrinated into Obama's style of liberal-socialism, even though a certain number of them go out of their way to publically label themselves as being conservative.

Last's evening's board meeting presentations by S.I. students were quite impressive. Regardless of the side of the fence you're on, every citizen of this district has a lot to be proud of in terms of where Springboro schools is right now.

What was the terrible irony of last evening? The presentations by 6th grade S.I. students were done in front of 3 newly elected board members who have an agenda that involves little to nothing to do with continuing the level of excellence demonstrated by the 6th graders. Unlike the previous BOE, the 3 newly elected board majority doesn't abide by Children First philosophy. Without a shadow of a doubt, last evening proved Malone Stuckey and Anderson are together in lock-step in a "Paybacks First, Children Second" philosophy.

The date of April 3, 2014 will be written into Springboro history as the date student union indoctrination turned 180 degrees, then marched back into the Boro boardroom. One of the students from S.I. did a presentation involving "S.T.A.R.T", describing her successes and setbacks, and how..."...Common Core had helped her to do better in math..."

Regarding which S.I. teacher / admin that coached this 6th grader to use the term "Common Core" in her presentation, your guess is every bit as good as mine.

Perhaps the same S.I.teacher / admin might explain to this student as well as the rest of the 6th grade class the truth about Common Core? Perhaps they might explain about how Common Core is designed by liberals to tear control of public education away from local control, and their parents? Perhaps they might explain Common Core is designed by liberals to centralize the public school curriculum of all 50 states to the control of a pack of Washington D.C. Obama-loving bureaucrats?

None of this truth about Common Core will ever be spoken to our kids... unless it's is done by Boro parents. Why? Because many of our children's teachers have already bought the lies. They've already swallowed the koolade. Teachers who've resisted this type of indoctrination are likely to be in the minority. They're likely to be too intimidated by their brainwashed, often pro-union peers to speak up to their students out about the actual truth regarding Common Core.

"...Ms. Wray unfortunately decided to use protected student information under R.C.§3319.321 and FERPA 20 USC 1232g for personal use.

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."

It is hard to believe this is the only time this has happened and we should know who this information went to and who else used this ill-gotten list.

Does Acorn have the private information of our students? Does the Democratic party, as Stephanie Bindeman is on the Democratic Central Committee, does she now have this list of our voting students?
What other information has been misused to work over our kids?
Is this the way they got the 99%ers to rally?
I am outraged by this information, aren't all of you?
Can someone call the board of elections and the prosecutor?

Education is all about POWER and MONEY and who has control of both!

Locally Speaking, that means that MSA/SEA Pro Union Activists now have full control of
all money and power in this school district; And as was proven at the April 3 board meeting, the only thing our MSA majority CARES about is re-instating Malone's status quo political agenda of Controlling our school tax dollars for Union First financial gains, even to the detriment of our children first best interests, and at the expense of all Springboro Stakeholders.

Our School District doesn't need more money; we need more ACCOUNTABILITY!

Community Organizer Jeff Stec will NOT help our school district figure out how to make the district more accountability, he will only coach Mr. Petrey's Union Stewards to spin...spin...spin.... community input into BIG spending levy campaigns; and at taxpayers expense! And that's just leading us backward into re-instating the past failed practices of MoreRon's status quo.

Stay Alert Citizens! We the People do have our Constitutional Rights to freely express our grievances to the BOE elected officials of our local school government!

And now he is wasting $12,000 plus more of our tax dollars because he, the School Superintendent, has a $50 million Taxpayer-Funded Budget to educate our Students; but this highly paid professional educator, Todd Petrey, does not have a Clue as to his Statement of Mission nor Vision for our school children and community! Todd Petrey does not allow his Employers (the BOE elected officials representing ALL Springboro Stakeholders) to answer E-Mails from their Constituents, but instead answers FOR the Board of Education Members!

Common Core is illegal. Under the U.S. Constitution, public education belongs to individual states.

It is illegal for the federal government to interfere in the states’ right of making educational decisions. National standards are illegal. National data collection is illegal. There are three laws in effect which prohibit legality of Common Core. America's liberal educators like to believe they achieve their goals through legislation. But with Common Core the only thing liberals have achieved is a grandiose level of hypocrisy.

“No provision of any applicable program shall be construed to authorize any department, agency, officer, or employee of the United States to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system, or over the selection of library resources, textbooks, or other printed or published instructional materials by any educational institution or school system…“

Typical response for S-U-R-E from the Majority of Losers supporting the OSBA takeover of our Board of Education, under the leadership of Charles Anderson, President and Ron Malone, Vice President.

Whatever happened to School Superintendent, Todd Petrey, under the leadership of this MSA majority?

Under the leadership of our previous Board's hiring of Todd Petrey, less than TWO YEARS AGO, Mr. Petrey commented in the DDN where the board is at right now, fiscal responsibility and highest academic achievement, is what he stood for!

Now it appears that School Superintendent Todd Petrey has lost his "footing" for S-U-R-E, and is rapidly sliding downhill toward the same old failed practices of the past two superintendents.

Perhaps you will recall that both David Baker and Gene Lolli attacked Springboro citizens' constitutional rights of free speech in their efforts to force Springboro Citizens to just shut up and live with it! David Baker filed charges against private citizens; Gene Lolli threatened legal charges against Springboro citizens who brought cameras to Lolli's community-wide public presention promoting Inscreased Taxes school levy campaign.

At April 3 board meeting, School Superintendent Todd Petrey, rallied support for Board Policy changes in First Reading limiting our Springboro citizens free speech rights to publicly address our BOE elected officials during pre-arranged participation and participation on agenda items.

The changes to public participation that Mr. Petrey's District Policy Committee members are bringing up for approval vote would require all citizens attending public meeting to sign in stating our name, address, and what we are going to talk about, before the citizens
recognized! That's the same policy that Gene Lolli tried pushing down our throats when he was running the Board of Education.(Some of those citizens who were stopped at the door of the LGI room by former school treasurer Tracy Jarvis still have a copy of the forms that she handed out to private citizens, collecting names address and subject matter IF we expected our "concerns" to be recognized as "worthy" of being heard by our Board of Education elected officials.

This policy change will be discussed further by Mr. Petrey's District Policy Committee at the next Policy Committee meeting on WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. This meeting is OPEN to the public; but our school superintendent knows for S-U-R-E that few concerned citizens from the outside community will have opportunity to attend; and hear first hand Mr. Petrey's attempts, through these proposed policy changes, to SILENCE the voices of any opposition to this MSA/SEA takeover of our Board of Education and violation of our free speech and Constitutional rights.
