For too long, the Springboro district appeared to work very well, but lacked clear direction. With no plan for textbooks, technology, capital imporvements, buses and more, there was no

Educate Springboro's common sense approach does not strip the district of its traditions or diversity. It does not ignore it's accomplishments and honors, including "Excellent with Distinction." It simply gives us a unifying direction that extends beyond any individual, building, or year.
A year ago, our district faced a sort of "perfect storm" with needs for everything from buses and books to technology and staffing coming to the surface at the same time. Through good management and some good fortune, our once rudderless ship emerged from that storm with clear leadership and direction. Clearly there are still challenges, but we are moving in the direction of putting Children First.
Even after plans to invest millions in technology, curriculum, buildings and buses, and even after providing every employee with raises, we are financially prespared to give something back to the taxpayer--to give back to our community by reducing their tax burden.
We are meeting and exceeding state mandates as well as local expectations. We are building a technology backbone, investing
in computers, curriculum, buses, and buildings -- we are putting children first.
Most important, we are being honest about what is needed through 2017! This is REFORM at the local level, and this IS working
together toward sustainability.
People in this community should take time out from their busy schedules to say THANK YOU to our current board and our school district staff for renewal levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million!
Thank You, Mrs. Kohls, Mr. Rigano, Mr. Petron, Mr. Miller, and
Mrs. Kull, AND Special Thanks to Our School Superintendent, Mr.Petry, and our Entire School district staff!

As the man who led our school district as high school principal for 13 years, Ron Malone held a special place of trust, authority, and influence in our community. How he chose to use those gifts is revealed in the public records reports of his professional peer reviewers, his superiors, and his own public pronouncements.
It is not as golden as you have been led to believe.
DECEMBER 2010 - Warren County Educational Service Center audit
report on SHS program of studies RECOMMENDATIONS page 13:
"Increase the number of students taking the HIGH SCHOOLS THAT WORKS recommended curriculum/Ohio Core each year by at least 25 percent.
"Increase the percentage of students taking college preparatory courses. Eliminate any course offerings below the college preparatory level."
JANUARY 2012 - Superintendent Gene Lolli's annual performance evaluation of Mr. Malone notes:
"Mr. Malone does demonstrate the ability to affect change, but sometimes very reluctantly. It sometimes takes numerous requests by Superintendent before changes are implemented."
Mr. Malone needs to improve on getting request goals to the Superintendent in a timely fashion. Examples include: Requested schedule of events for delayed start at the beginning of the year, at semester, and last week and have not yet received. Also requested times and dates of all staff meetings and quarterly updates on the High Schools That Work per 2011-2012 job targets.
JANUARY 2013 - Warren County Educational Service Center audit report on SHS program of studies page 10:
"SHS still offers GENERAL LEVEL CLASSES (Algebra 1A and 1B, physical science, US History, and World History). Thus, not all students experience a college preparatory curriculum. Documents provided to the Technical Assistance Visiting (TAV Team indicate that contrary to the High Schools That Works philosophy, SHS believes that offering LOW-LEVEL COURSES is in the best interest of students. This belief, however, WAS NOT SUBSTANTIATED by research or data."
2013 US NEWS ranking of high schools in Ohio ranks King’s #23, Mason #35, Bellbrook#37, Brookville #41, Lebanon #48, Centerville #49, Waynesville #53, Monroe #90 and , and finally Springboro #97.
Given our district’s stated 40% gifted population, the fact that only 20% are on track to take A/P classes in high school, our district is severely underperforming compared to those districts around us in my opinion.
*Number of Dual College Credit Classes available when Mr. Malone
retired - 0
*Number of Dual College Credit classes added after Mr. Malone retired
June 30, 2013 - 6
Misallocation of district and taxpayer resources: 34 out of 77 elective classes at the high school had less than 20 students, more than a few had multiple classes.
IE: Children’s Literature, 2 classes – 27 total students, Entrepreneurship, 2 classes – 20 total students, etc.
My conclusion is that Mr. Malone ran this high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand. This tactic robbed resources from areas of greater need in the district. Those who suffered the most were the gifted and those in need of early intervention.
-Paid for by Doug Wiedeman, private citizen, just asking the questions and finding the answers.
So when you can't answer any questions or discount the facts that Malone, Stuckey, and Anderson won the three board seats fair and square, just keep repeating Doug's old facts that don't prove anything. You're seriously lame!

Springboro has spoken loud and clear - we want real transparency in the board room and we want the board to focus on the kids rather than some hidden agenda.

....

Totally agree with your MSA three ONE VOICE choice campaign, that the "silent majority" spoke loudly this last election.

Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners went to the polls and OVERWHELMINGLY voted our TRUST in our Children's First Budgeting board members, DAVID PETRONI and JIM RIGANO and Our Renewal Levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million. This is reform at the local level, and this is working together toward sustainability!
Special THANKS to our current board members and our new school superintendent and entire school district staff of administrators and ALL school employees! Thank You for CHOOSING to work in our school district, putting Students First while Maintaining Fiscal Integrity!

Three days before the election, people in this community FINALLY WOKE UP, FINALLY REALIZING that this November 2013 school board election was all about TWO retired educators, Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey, engaging in the OEA War of Words, attacking our school district Taxpayers and our current board's winning agenda of Children's First Budgeting; and our TWO school board Budget-Finance committee members, Mr. David Petroni and Mr. Jim Rigano.

FINALLY THE "SILENT MAJORITY" of 6086 voters got the message that voters did not have to feel obligated to vote for THREE, nor TWO, but all that was needed was JUST ONE VOTE for Charles Anderson... the only ONE needed to push the "retired educators" into the minority in our boardroom of FIVE elected officials.

JUST THREE DAYS before the election, the petty complaints of the
MSA campaign AGAINST a SIGN educating Springboro voters that the ONE candidate, Charles Anderson, would have a broader VISION
of Today and the Future of our Schools and Community, as a
successful BUSINESS MAN in our community; than the two retired
educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey, whose only experiences
in financial management are those tunnel-vision union shop practicies of a continuous stream of new levies, whether or not there is a real NEED to increase taxes. And the silent majority
possessed enough common sense to know what we had to do at the polls on November 5th and we now claim VICTORY for voting Number One for community business man Charles Anderson over two retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey.

There is no room in our school board business of educating ALL students (to their highest academic potential while maintaining fiscal integrity) for the petty grievances of the Ron Malone
SHS Union Shop business. Lone Ron Malone's micro-managing business
of his union shop is now shut down; and board member elect Ron Malone is only ONE voice among FIVE voices on the BOE, and ALL
FIVE VOICES of the BOE are ACCOUNTABLE to listen to the needs of
BOTH the school community of employees AND the entire community of their taxpaying constituents.

Mr. Malone and Mr. Stuckey share the same old outdated status quo business as usual vision of our children's 21st Century QUALITY classroom education with QUALITY Professional Educators for ALL STUDENTS in EACH ONE of our Springboro schools classrooms.
None of the other THREE board members, David Petroni, Jim Rigano, Charles Anderson, are burdened with the collective political baggage of voting with Mr. Malone to "re-define the role of the board member, Thus putting the re-emphasis on the "educators first" with our Students First school tax dollars.
SOS to Ron Malone: NO MORE STATUS QUO TUNNEL VISION!

Stay alert voters, that you are not so "heavenly minded" that
you are no are no earthly good in the challenges that lie ahead in the Board Room, Standing Up for Kids, and Putting Ron Malone in
his place as only ONE of the FIVE "sitting" BOE elected officials. There is NO room for Malone's Micro-managing of our board, by his futile attempts to "re-define" the role of the board member,so that Malone's Union Shop Tunnel Vision of Failed Practices will "FIT IN." ...and that's just not going to happen.

No need to pray that Ron Malone will CHANGE his lazy-minded
"union shop" status quo ways, now that the popularity contest is over and he has only achieved Number Two spot.

.... and that means Mr. Malone is going to have to try harder
to micro-manage the financial expertise and business management leadership skills of the THREE majority board members, Mr. Rigano, Mr. Petroni, and Mr. Anderson....and that's just not going to happen.

.... Community taxpayers are optomistic that once Mr. Malone wakes up from his delusions of insane popularity, he will have to face Today's reality that he is not in high school anymore, the good old boys union shop is out of business permanently, and he now is accountable for his "performances" to the Community of ALL taxpaying constituents, forcing him to LISTEN to the NEEDS of the Community, in addition to the WANTS of all our school employees.

Mr. Malone has a proven record of RELUCTANCE to use his ABILITY
putting our Students First on his priority list of things to do to keep the Union Masters happy.... Taxpayers need to stay alert, stay engaged, stay to the Task of holding Malone accountable to either FIT IN with our current board's Fixing Budgets/Levy Alternatives winning agenda or GET OUT of our Board room.

There's no place in our children's 21st century education for setting up "union shops" first.

I LOVE how you all are trying to spin Anderson as your pick. He was hand-picked by Malone and Stuckey, and he was an excellent choice. He did not like what he was seeing from the current board, so he ran AGAINST your minions, Bitner and Vaughn. He was MORTIFIED at the Educate Springboro signs that associated him with their campaign. He does not like what the current board stands for and will fight with Malone and Stuckey to CHANGE IT. You all will be devastated here soon when you realize he's not one of you. Will he always vote the same as Malone? Certainly not, and I welcome that!

I'm just glad that Kelly Kohls isn't on the board anymore. That woman is crazy.

Springboro Families and Taxpaying homeowners extend our hands
across the isles to our new board members-elect, Mr. Anderson,
Mr. Malone, and Mr. Stuckey! Hopefully, each ONE of you have the individual expertise,ABILITY, and willingness to celebrate the
progress made in the past two years, and proving your good intent by "getting on board" with our current board's winning reform minded leadership philosophy!

Hopefully, each ONE of you will choose to "Come Grow With Us" in the direction of leadership for our Students First/Fiscal Responsible 21st century education for ALL our Students, with Quality teachers in ALL our classrooms!

If there is a sense of turbulence in our community, it has been manufactured by those who oppose change, wish to suffocate debates they would lose, and return to the days of endless levies, punitive actions against our citizens, and never ending financial emergencies within the district.

Our current board members and school district leaders, working
together as a Professional Team, have built a financial foundation on the principle of fiscal responsibility; AND will continue to make changes that make SENSE; for example, eliminating underutilized courses to fill needs in other areas; AND won't
continue relationships with service providers that don't provide the best value just because working with them has been past practice.

Springboro Families and Taxpaying homeowners will demand integrity from everyone our BOE works with..from Boosters to Vendors, from Students to Administrators. Common sense, ethics and sound financial decisons guide our Children's First Budgeting winning agenda! Children's First Budgeting Works! Let's stay on this new course and move in the direction of leadership for our children, schools and community.

Special Thanks to our current board members Kelly Kohls, Jim Rigano, David Petroni, Don Miller, and Wendy Kull.
Special Thanks to our Superintendent,Mr. Petry, and our school
district staff AND Thank You for Renewal Levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million!

Welcome Aboard New Board Members-Elect: Charles Anderson,
Ron Malone, David Stuckey. The Time Has Now Come to Utilize
Your Individual ABILITY and Work as a Professional Team putting
individual agendas behind... putting Our Students First, while
Maintaining Fiscal Integrity.

Achievement and opportunity gaps at the SHS cannot be closed unless a climate of high expectations exists for all studnets from Kindergarten through High School. Staying within the fiscal confines that our taxpayers have set is the CHALLENGE and requires FRESH IDEAS!

influence YOU to look at Today and The Future, and you liked what you saw in Boro Future Bright! Did you notice that I now have a BRIGHTER username?)
