Funny, Mr. Wiedeman, as I know you do not have the BALLS to say anything this to Dr. Malone's face. Be a man and a father, and do what is right by your kids and allow them to have the BEST education that they deserve as what you are doing is limiting them and other children in this district! You do NOT speak for my children nor other children in the District.
Sod Off!
You have a 'hard on' for Dr. Malone and why???
Because he is a man and you a mouse?!
Just stop with your lies! Grow up and just stop your garbage!
We are tired of your tirades! You regurgitate the same stuff over and over - get new materail!
You don't like the way things are going, then pull your kids out of the district and go elsewhere as we would be happy to see you leave!
Get a bloody life!
He could pull his kids out, but that doesn't help him regarding taxes he pays to fund the schools. Stop drinking the koolaid of a small minority of noisy parents in Springboro who seem to think the answer to every perceived problem is throwing money at it. We heard this same nonsense when levy after levy was up and failed yet all the predicted calamity that was prodded out by the noisy minority never materialized. Why should I believe a word they say? They have been wrong at every turn. The board has not. They have a record. The numbers speak for themselves - from deficit to surplus. And people are complaining?!?!?!

Sorry, but Doug has simply pointed out some painful truths that you refuse to believe. Do your own research if you think Doug is a liar. Don't rely on a noisy minority contingent of parents to base anything on.

You noticed all of these problems...why didn't you do more to stop it? And funny - I thought you didn't like to deflect, demean, etc.? You preach to everyone else about that. Now, you are going after Dr. Malone because he is running for BOE. Interesting....
This is Doug Weidemann's modus operandi. It always someone else's fault...the union, Dr. Malone, citizens in general, anyone but his fellow tea party members and allies on the board, Kohls and Rigano.

To see for yourself, take a look at what Doug Weidemann did to an innocent bank teller a couple years ago:

http://statecasefiles.justia.com/documents/oh...

{¶ 2} On August 15, 2002, Plaintiff, Doug Wiedemann, made a deposit to his checking account with Sky Bank at its branch in Springboro, Ohio. The deposit was made at the drive-through window. The bank teller who accepted the deposit was Kevin Carsey.

{¶ 3} After Wiedemann pulled forward from the drive-through window he examined his deposit slip and discovered that his account balance was less than the amount he had deposited. Wiedemann parked his vehicle and went inside the bank to inquire about the discrepancy.

{¶ 4} Carsey explained to Wiedemann that the balance in his account reflected a charge for a check that was returned for insufficient funds several days before. Carsey further informed Wiedemann that another of his checks was returned for that same reason earlier that day.

{¶ 5} Believing that the bank had promised to employ different procedures, Wiedemann challenged Carsey’s explanation. Their exchange became heated, and Carsey threatened to call the police. Wiedemann turned and left the bank, and as he did exclaimed “F— you!” in a loud tone of voice. Carsey claims that Wiedemann also said,“I ought to kill you.”

{¶ 6} Carsey telephoned the Springboro police to complain about Wiedemann after Wiedemann left the bank. Carsey was shaking and had difficulty speaking. Carsey went to the Springboro Prosecutor’s office the following day to press his complaint about Wiedemann’s conduct. However, when asked if he wished to have Wiedemann arrested, Carsey replied:“absolutely not.”

{¶ 7} The surveillance camera at the Sky Bank branch recorded a non-audio, still frame tape of the exchange between Wiedemann and Carsey. The following day the branch manager, Eric Smith, gave the tape to the Springboro Prosecutor’s office.

{¶ 8} Approximately one week later, on August 22, 2002, at about 9:00 p.m., Springboro Police arrested Wiedemann at his home, in the presence of his wife and four young children.

Weidemann was charged with Menacing and Disorderly Conduct for the exchange.

He later appealed all the way to the Supreme Court of Ohio, who failed to hear the case because it lacked a "substantial constitutional question". In other words, Wiedemann's appeal was thrown out because it was frivolous.

Is someone this financially irresponsible and out of control a person we want as a role model in our community?

Absolutely not!

It does become easier to see why Doug Weidemann and Kelly Kohls are such good friends, as the public record shows that neither has the common core competency of balancing their checkbook and paying their bills on time. And these people want to be leaders in our community? Shouldn't their own house be in order first??

Ms Kohls predicament came with calamity known as the Great Recession and the plummeting of home values. Ms. Kohls supported the actions of the Budget and Finance Committee where the plundering was at last unmasked in a transparent fashion.
Mr. Malone's predicament is due to his, and solely his choices, in matters of school finance and benign neglect of the duties charged to him by school policies to oversee the organizations that purported to act in the best interest of our children.
While Ms. Kohls personal collapse cost a bank about $500,000 in lost value, she wasn't the first, nor the last to experience the ravages of a collapsing housing market. The banks also are culpable for loaning more than properties were worth in those times.
Have you LOST YOUR MIND Weideman????

It is not the bank's fault that Kelly Kohls obligated herself to more than she could pay. Bull crap! Kelly Kohls was irresponsibile and rather than pay her bills she filed bankruptcy and then took her family on an expensive vacation out of the country with her whole family of seven. I sure can't afford that...SO I DON'T DO IT! The choice is easy...

Nor was it the responsibility of Kevin Carsey, the bank teller you threatened to kill, to ensure that you had enough money in your bank account to cover the checks you were writing!

How does this fit with your mantra of personal responsibility, conservative budgeting, etc??? Dare you try to defend your actions or that of Kelly Kohls? We are too smart to think you may simply be victims of the circumstances. Malarkey!

The 15% or so of reduced levy was because of the 12.5% tax increase to property owners included in the State Budget, on all new and renewal local levies that pass on the November ballot. So the taxpayer really got only about 2.5% reduction while the state got the rest. Taxpayers never get a break, only enslavement to the union man’s rights of collective bargaining laws that are 100% wrong for our children’s future.
"in the past, the state kicked in 12.5 percent for road, school and other levies, but under the new budget, property owners will now pay 100 percent of the amount due on any new and replacement levies. The change does not affect renewals."
http://www.akron.com/akron-ohio-community-new...

So a renewal levy on the ballot in November will still be funded 12.5% by the state after all. Your argument that homeowners are really only getting a 2.5% reduction is complete BS. And I love how a negative by John Kasich somehow becomes a negative by the teachers. Reality must really "byte" when it's founded in fiction.

All of which is quite fanciful, but alas, not relevant to the discussion at hand of the promotion of PROFICIENT as the gold standard for Mr. Malone.

PROFICIENT still equates to FAILURE

Why do you not concede the point? Have you so little respect for the populace of this community that you believe they cannot make this distinction for themselves.

"Why did they not convict Mr. Wiedeman of anything?"

A simple question, but following two attempts in two different courts by two different judges, how did they not manage a conviction in either one? They had a videotape of the incident after all, if all they charged was correct, then this was a slam dunk case for the prosecution.

Could be that the incident didn't quite transpire as they wished it had.

None of the garbage they throw my way in any way, shape, or form mitigates the Booster looting that Mr. Malone was charged with overseeing. As principal of the high school he was in charge of overseeing all fund raisers and those organizations that raised money in the name of our children for the high school.

Mr. Malone helped ensure a culture that did not look too hard at anything. It was almost as if he led a group that went out of its way to reduce income from other sources for our children.

None of the garbage mitigates Mr. Malone's responsibility for the willful promotion of PROFICIENT as something he knew it was not. 42% on the math portion of the Ohio Graduation Test is not passing or even close. Based upon the scoring system he used to grade students who invested time and effort into the Post Secondary Education Option (PSEO), those PROFICIENT achievers would still be under the 60% mark Mr. Malone declared failing in college courses. Yet with a straight face he claims PROFICIENT as a great feat of education to the public and to his students.

No amount of debris thrown in the road will mitigate those hard, cold circumstances.

Mr. Malone, whose credentials include 40 years of professional experience, and who now carries the banner of the has been a high school principal, who is currently insanely popular with the Boro Alumni community group, aspires to become Chief of the Springboro Board of Education.

During an interview with the editor of Springboro Life, Mr. Malone is asked: Where do you see the district heading?

Mr. Malone replies: There are a large number of unknown factors right now. The pattern at Springboro has been one of success when you look at any measurement out there. Our district has improved drastically and is among the elite districts in the state. I sense that we are going in a different direction, and the question is, "will that direction lead us to continued improvement, or will it result in a decline in performance?" Only time will tell.

The time has come for Springboro voters to tell Mr. Malone that our school district is moving forward in the direction of Unity in November, holding the banner high on the success of our children's first budget, because it leads us to continued improvement; and it's agreed that the direction of continued improvement leads our school district way beyond Mr. Malone's tunnel vision of re-instating status quo.

In case any one missed out on the great news released in local newspapers and on our school website, please go to www.springboro.org and check it out for yourselves! There's something for all of us to join together in celebration of our successful working together!

SPRINGBORO SCHOOL BOARD APPROVES AGREEMENT WITH TEACHERS AND UNPRECEDENTED 15 PERCENT ROLLBACK ON NOVEMBER RENEWAL!

"This is outstanding news for our employees, taxpayers and students and their families," said Kohls. "We have an agreement we can afford and that will make our school district more competitive. We will be able to retain our best teachers and attract new top-notch teaching staff."

You still have not countered the argument that 42% on a math test taken in 10th grade that measures a student's total learning in grades 1-9 is not FAILURE.

Contrary to Mr Malone's assertions celebrating PROFICIENT as a reasonable standard, he knowingly foists on a trusting public the fallacy that scoring 41%- 58% on the 2013 Ohio Graduation test is a good thing.

In the direction of unity…..
With the first day of school upon us in late August, we enter into the comfortable routines of a new school year. Each year begins with the hope and prayer of a fresh beginning on both sides of the fence, teachers praying for well-behaved students and children fervently praying for “nice” teachers.
The new year also brings with it new employment contracts with our support staff and our teachers. Combine that with the technology plan being assembled and implemented, new buses for our children’s safety, a sustainable facilities maintenance plan, a tax break for our taxpayers, and our district is in an entirely different situation from recent years when wave after wave of levy campaigns sought to raise taxes.
Circumstances may change; however, if we maintain our fiscal conservative spending patterns and husband our resources wisely, no new taxes are projected.
My place at the table is to represent the community—the taxpayer, the landowner, the voter. My fiduciary duty is also to this institution. It is important to remember I represent the voice of those who pay for our local schools. Tonight, we step forward for our teachers and our community. In doing so, we are demonstrating that as our voices come together we can write a single, better, unified story. It is not a story of the past, always disregarding the needs of the district. It is not a story of teachers and staff holding out for more. It is not a story of higher taxes (in fact, just the opposite). This is a story where everyone wins.
Although we occasionally may disagree with the means to an end, the final goal is the same for all involved: a better education for our children.
Through Children First Budgeting, zero based budgets, sound leadership, plans that prioritize educational needs, infrastructure and our staff, it is possible and now proven that we can live within our means. These phrases imply debt or sacrifice, but that is not the case. Not only have we proven that we can live within our means, but now every stakeholder in this district—our students and families, our staff and teachers, and our taxpayers–will benefit from this board’s leadership...

-continuing ... in the direction of Unity

First, our students benefit as we direct funds to textbooks, curriculum, new buses, technology, and we dedicate attention to supports for college and career—STEM, PSEO, AP courses and more.
I have stated in that past and it is worth repeating, that it is impossible to educate a child without skilled teachers and staff and without giving them the tools to be successful. With these new contract agreements, every teacher, every staff member, every employee, every custodian, and every bus driver of the Springboro Community City Schools will be paid more. They will be rewarded for their skills and commitment to our schools and our children.
In any negotiation, especially collective bargaining, each party must at least be willing to move forward knowing neither of us will get everything we want. I am willing to make the commitment to pay our teachers as they requested and they are willing to take reformative steps in their salary schedule and health benefits that respect the values of our entire community.
This agreement with our teachers must be more than a promise that sits on the shelf. The agreement to establish a merit / performance pay committee and diligently work with the health care committee, will dictate actions that demonstrate accountability by both sides. We all must strive with our best intentions to make sustainability the priority—to work within our current revenue rather than insist we need more.
The community can see after just 18 months that Children First Budgeting works. It is transparent and inclusive, and it drives our attention and resources toward investments in facilities, technology and teachers. It is most evident in the new contracts.
But what will be most evident to the taxpayer is lower taxes. Even after plans to invest millions in technology, curriculum, buildings and buses, and even after providing every employee with raises, we are financially prepared to give something back to the taxpayer – to give back to our community by reducing their tax burden. The renewal levy on the ballot in November will be set at a lower mileage rate to reduce taxes generated by that levy by nearly 15 percent.
This reduction of almost 15 percent is equal to $1,353,800 per year ($6,769,000 over 5 years) that we are giving back to our community. That’s right, every homeowner in the Springboro Community City School District will receive a raise just like our staff! Children First Budgeting makes sense and today everyone wins.
Steven Covey says that,“What you do has far greater impact than what you say.” So now we put the words—spun in social media, exclaimed in online petitions, threatening as well as entreating, angry as well as earnest—behind us. We’ve emerged stronger than before.
Congratulations to our board, to our central office staff, to our teachers and students, and to our community. All sides were heard – and the outcome is fair to all sides. All have gained ground. And that success can only continue if we act in good faith to work together to put Children First.

This OEA indoctrination is carried out by some of the meanest, greediest professional educators, every and they use our children's education to hold us hostage in their emotionally blackmailing for More...More...More!
It's all about the POWER OF UNION to control our school tax dollars!
The OEA members are some of the worst people we will ever have to deal with as to radical social behavior; because to the OEA radicals they are at war with the taxpayers.
They have the destruction of America in their minds and they are terrible people because their ideology makes them corrosive. They openly use children to execute their maniacal plans for social progressive changes at the expense of society, and this defines their essence. Wars are won by taking away from the other side the will to continue fighting. The OEA attacks them directly hoping to rob them of their will to stand opposed to the union’s progressive agenda.

More Good News from www.springboro.org
BOARD APPROVES AGREEMENT WITH TEACHERS AND UNPRECEDENTED 15 PERCENT ROLLBACK ON NOVEMBER RENEWAL
The Springboro Community City Schools Board of Education (BOE) voted unanimously in favor of a new agreement with the Springboro Education Association (SEA) at its board meeting on July 16. The announcement comes less than a week after the BOE approved a new agreement with the Springboro Classified Employees Association (SCEA).
“This is outstanding news for our employees, taxpayers and students and their families,” said Kohls.“We have an agreement we can afford and that will make our school district more competitive. We will be able to retain our best teachers and attract new top-notch teaching staff.”
According to Kohls, one of the main reasons the BOE voted unanimously was the board’s agreement that a 15% rollback on the $9.2 million renewal levy scheduled for November will be instituted. That means the renewal levy will not only add no new taxes for residents, it will result in a reduction in taxes.“If the levy passes in November, we will be able to move forward without any type of levy for some time to come,” Kohls confirmed.“By reducing the renewal levy, we are helping our community during challenging economic times while underscoring the need for this levy to pass.”
“When we projected our agreements with the SEA and SCEA, we found we will have a $7.2 million carryover in 2017,” said Kohls.“The community should be aware that our five-year forecast considers all aspects of funding and revenue streams as well as anticipated expenses.”

More good news - continued..

According to Kohls, the BOE transformed the school district into a district with a projected surplus.“This was accomplished while the BOE improved bussing, added technology, purchased needed textbooks and invested in capital improvements in buildings and grounds. It could not have been accomplished without outstanding financial planning and management by the board, administration and staff.”
The highlights of the two-year agreement with the SEA include:
• 80/20 healthcare insurance with employees paying 20%, and school district paying 80%
• 2% raise on base pay for both years one and two
• Step raises for two years
• Establishing a committee to put an equitable performance pay system in place
In comparison, the four-year agreement with the SCEA includes these provisions:
• Step raises for three years
•$1,000 annual stipend for three years
• 80/20 healthcare insurance with employees paying 20%, and school district paying 80%
In May 2013, the BOE prepared a five-year forecast with reasonable assumptions. This May forecast indicated a carryover or surplus of $7.55 million in 2017. The five-year forecast, after the approval of both union agreements, shows a carryover of $7.2 million in 2017. This surplus, along with the projected additional funding emanating from the governor’s budget bill that will start to be realized this month, encouraged the BOE to consider a reduction in the renewal levy.
The Springboro treasurer has been informed that the district will receive 6.5% more in 2013-14 than in 2012-13, an increase of approximately $828,000 as well as 10.5% more in 2014-15, an increase of approximately $1.2 million.
Since the start of the 2012-13 school year, the school district has begun to receive $3.5 million per year as a result of a pipeline that has been completed. It is possible that a second pipeline will be completed during the 2015-16 school year. While the BOE believes this second pipeline will become a reality, its current five-year forecast does not include the additional funding it may bring to the district.
“As the Springboro BOE looks into the future, we continue our commitment to working with a zero-based budget, which we call our ‘Children First Budget’,” said Kohls.“We found no reason to ask the community for more funding than we need. The board has been fiscally prudent. We have a generous community that has felt the pain of plummeting property values, lost income and financial insecurity. We want an excellent school district to help keep property values high and draw people to live in Springboro.”
Kohls continued,“Even with the rolled-back renewal levy in November, we do not forecast the need for additional taxes for years to come. This will be accomplished because the BOE and administration will continue to apply innovative financial management principles and maintain a dedication to our Children First Budget.”
“The board is pleased with the agreements with our teachers and non-teaching staff,” Kohls said,“We can walk into the future both unified and strong. It helps to have received additional funding from the state and from the pipelines that are being constructed in Springboro.” She continued,“We have an agreement in place that will provide a surplus in 2017, and that is something our community will appreciate.”
Kohls concluded,“The Springboro School District continues to provide a quality education. For eight years it has been honored as “excellent with distinction” by the Ohio Department of Education. We thank our parents, students, community, teachers, administrators and non-teaching staff for these achievements. We look forward to continued excellence in the future.”
