I was shocked, disappointed, and deeply saddened to hear that CCFD Assistant Chris Vecchi was found guilty of ID theft! This is totally unacceptable behavior for a public safety employee, who is given the trust of Springboro families, to protect the safety of all citizens; and Mr. Vecchi should be fired.
What a second slap in the face for Springboro families to know that Mr. Vecchi was a "trusted" member of our School Board Safety Committee;
who obviously felt so empowered with his unionism job security, that he could actually steal the good name of our school board president, just to spread lies to discredit and distort her good service; promoting the November election of union school board candidate, Ron Malone!
In good conscience in efforts to restore that lost trust, Ron Malone should withdraw his name from the school board election.
People in the community should ask ourselves IF this type of union empowerment of "no way but the union way" is what we want as a board representative majority in Springboro Schools.

This shocks anyone?
The booster treasurer steals untold dollars, most likely in the $1,000,000 range, and gets 90 days with work release privileges.
This gentleman in supposed to be the second in command at the Fire Department with such pitiful and corrosive judgement?
#27773 Oct 8, 2013
Who was the man who did not protect the students, the parents, and the taxpayers from massive fraud for during his tenure as principal?
Can union school board candidate, Mr. Malone, be trusted to protect our Students First best interest in every decision the board makes with your hard-earned school tax dollars?
#27774 Oct 8, 2013
Do you think if we all show up at the union school board candidates debate that the Mayor can get Ron Malone to give Springboro parents an answer in regards to Mr. Wiedeman's data?
#27775 Oct 8, 2013
I would be most happy to debate Mr. Malone regarding his interpretation of theOhio Achievement Assessment tests results for our school district.
Let's all ask Mr. Malone why we accept FAILURE as PROFICIENT.
While you are at it, bring along Mr. Stuckey.

debating mr M is like debating jello he will spin the numbers to his understanding and not hear any thoughts just like union
#27777 Oct 9, 2013
Mighty hard to spin PROFICIENT as anything but FAILURE.
Who among us would see anyone as scoring 34% on a test as anything but FAILING?
Spin as you wish, the hard reality is that literally thousands of our children are not getting the quality education the tax payers have funded.
At the high school level under Mr. Malone, the High Schools That Work report from January 2013 notes "only 43% of the Springboro High School students have completed the High Schools That Work recommended curriculum (Ohio Core), a 34% DECREASE from 2008."
Not my words, but the words of the professional peers of Mr. Malone who are paid to evaluate high schools for the Warren County Educational Service Center.

We now have less than one month to get out our message that November 5, 2013, is a turning point in the future success of our students' quality classroom education.
We can't just invest in the status quo of re-instating Ron Malone's business as usual union first inept leadership.
We MUST invest our votes and our money in a
VISION OF REFORM!
The Choice Is Simple!
Only our two non-union school board candidates,
DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN
are ON BOARD with our Current board's
VISION OF REFORM!
Spread the Good News!
David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are the school board candidates who MUST be our next two elected board representatives! Our future depends upon electing PARENTS REPRESENTING PARENTS!
VOTE FOR DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN
on November 5, 2013!
STUDENTS FIRST! RESPONSIBLE BUDGETING!
Our future is going to be brighter than status quo tunnel vision of past failed practices of union controlled Board of Education elected officials;
AND WE ARE ON OUR WAY... NO TURNING BACK!
#27781 Oct 9, 2013
I've noticed that when you talk about these numbers you fail to mention what other schools in the area look like. Are we the only ones who have this "problem"?
Also it occurs to me that from 2008 - 2013 would cover the time the current school board was in "power". Don't they have anything to do with this "failure" or are their hands clean? After all these do have to do with Ohio "core" and there are those on the board that reject the "core".
If the curriculum is the principal's responsibility then you should have been opposed to the school board trying to influence the curriculum. If the BOE has oversight of the curriculum then they should be held responsible for your said "failure". It's either one way or the other.
As far as you debating Malone, you had your chance but didn't run for BOE. It's always easier being a fan or a cheerleader than a player. Those that need to be at the debate are missing MULTIPLE opportunities to give the public an idea of the choices they have.
#27782 Oct 9, 2013
Wow, if there were only other candidates that would show up at the debate, maybe they could ask him.
So much for that idea....
#27783 Oct 9, 2013
Just Say No Way to the Old Way of Ron Malone's status quo union first business as usual.
VOTE FOR OUR TWO REFORM MINDED PARENTS REPRESENTING PARENTS!
DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN MUST BE ELECTED AS OUR NEXT TWO
It's a win-win ticket for all students, parents, school employees, and community wide taxpayers.
NO TURNING BACK ON NOVEMBER 5, 2013!
VOTE FOR DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN!
OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON TODAY'S INVESTMENT IN A VISION OF REFORM!
#27784 Oct 9, 2013
What an extremely bitter and spiteful group of Delaware county Ohio extremist liberals think of The Springboro BOE.
#27785 Oct 9, 2013
Excuse Me, but what difference does it make on November 5, 2013,
what other school are doing or what others are saying about our schools and community or even who or whom is responsible?
Why waste our time? Our busy schedules would be better served by taking that time to walk through our neighborhoods spreading the good news that DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN are the non-union candidates that should be our next two elected board representatives.
The time has now come to focus on our responsibility to stay the course of our Children's First Budgeting success, and go to the polls and Vote for DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN, the only two non-union school board candidates, who are already on board with our current board's Vision of Reform.
VOTE NOVEMBER 5, 2013 to Stay the Course!
VOTE FOR DAVID BITNER and KOLTON VAUGHN
A WIN-WIN TICKET FOR ALL STUDENTS, PARENTS, SCHOOL EMPLOYEES
and TAXPAYING VOTERS!

To debate Malone is a zero sum game. Think of Malone as an elephant. This particular elephant has long been a dominant figurehead of the savannah. During a debate, this elephant may choose to tell the truth, he may choose to lie or deceive, or he could be absolutely clueless. At the end of the day, this elephant can do almost nothing to harm his reputation in the public's eye because this elephant remains the insanely popular king of the Springboro high school savannah.
On the other hand, during the next 4 weeks Malone has something to lose lots of sleep over because elephants of the African savannah are absolutely terrified of ANT HILLS.
Let's get to it!

We can do little to influence other school districts except by setting the example. We have only our own district where we can successfully impact its performance and the actual amount of true learning that takes place in our classrooms.
Wasting your time chasing others to the bottom is an exercise in futility.
The latest report from the High Schools That Works covered the school year 2011 - 2012, the current school board took over in January of 2011 and immediately began pushing to add more Advanced Placement courses. Mr. Malone responded by requesting one A/P Statistics class, a current events class, and a beginning guitar class. The board to its credit approved the A/P class, denied the guitar class, and to its discredit approved the current events class.
The reports from 2007 and 2010 note the same problems in each year as we see in 2012. Mr. Malone made the conscious decision to ignore to the detriment of the children the recommendations his professional peers were making. Paramount of them was increasing the strength of the curriculum and promoting more A/P classes.
Mr. Malone enjoyed the authority and influence conferred upon in him in both the academic community and the community at large as principal of the high school. How he chose to weld that authority and influence is a demonstration of where his priorities truly lie. Sadly it seems it is not with our children's long term futures.
As a private citizen I would still enjoy the opportunity to debate the point of academic achievement of our school district and Mr. Malone's record on such matters.
Perhaps the public would like to know more about why Mr Malone knowingly promotes PROFICIENT as a standard that equates to FAILURE.

It is hard to lie when the person you are attempting to BS has a grounding in the subject. It is also hard to lie when the facts are printed by the state on its web pages for everyone to view.
It is easy to lie to willing participants in the lie, but not everyone in this community fits that bill.

The more we know....
Spread the Good News!
Now we all know that David Bitner and Kolton Vaughn are the
two school board candidates, who are fully vested in a Vison of Reform for future education, are Parents Representing Parents, putting our STUDENTS FIRST, and Staying the Course of RESPONSIBLE BUDGETING!
Why would anyone who cares about the future financial stability of our school children's education vote to re-instate control of status quo leadership that had lost its balance?
If there was any balance at all in the past, it was an eye for
an eye. As this community said "no" to five new money levies, district leaders failed to find levy alternatives. The status quo threatened the community with cuts. Thankfully, many of those leaders have left, but some now would like toreturn to sit on our school board.
NO DEBATE ABOUT IT....
This year's record is easy to defend because it consistently demonstrates investing in Children First. From replacing the districts aging computers, buses, to implementing new curriculum and raising expectations with new standards, testing --
we have progressed! Why would we give control back to those who slowed this district's progress? Those who inflated budget forecasts? Those who ignored the capital needs of the District?
Most importantly, why would we elect the same people who neglected to put Children First in our schools?
Children First Budgeting Works in the best financial/academic interest of our Students First, our quality classroom teachers
and all school employees, providing a quality education while keeping our schools both safe and affordable. Why would anyone vote against Children First?
