Board Member Ron Malone is No Victim of others on the board.
This ignorance of current events is ALL YOURS. Why no outrage over a board members cyber bullying and attack on our district? Especially in a place like this where anonimity is useed by 99% of the users.

This board can keep concentrating on Dr. Malone while the rest of the community (and possibly state) sees the CURRENT events instead of dwelling on HISTORY.

No wonder most here are out of touch. The last vote was very clear in that.

What the School Plans to Do. To continue to increase academic rigor, SHS is investigating the possibility of offering dual credit courses. SHS will also begin implementing the revised Ohio Academic Content standards and assessments. The district will create teacher teams to analyze the revised standards and identify areas of change.
(This was December 2010 when this was written, the number of dual credit classes our students enjoyed when Mr. Malone retired 2,5 years alter: ZERO
The number instituted the following school year after he retired: SIX)
Why the School Should Continue to Address This Key Practice. According to Table 8, only 43 percent of SHS students have completed the HSTW-recommended curriculum (Ohio Core), a 34 percent decrease from 2008. Although interviews indicate that this sharp decrease is the result of changes in the process for coding transcripts, versus changes in curriculum, the decrease is still noteworthy. Only 60 percent of SHS students completed four credits of CP English, a decrease of 33 percent from 2008. There was a five percent drop between 2008 and 2010 with 77 percent of students completing four credits of CP mathematics. Eighty percent completed three credits of CP science, a decrease of 12 percent from 2008. Only 55 percent of SHS students completed at least one concentration, 30 percent below the HSTW goal.
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 TAV Team indicate that contrary to the HSTW 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.
Although senior projects are being explored, SHS currently does not require students to complete a senior project, a necessity for graduation in 2014. Thus, they still face challenges for implementing the Ohio Core and senior projects over the next three years. Plans for a senior project need to begin several years prior to implementation.
Although SHS offers numerous AP courses and PSEO options, only 20 percent students report they attempted to earn college credit during high school. This is a decrease of 43 percent from 2008, and 60 percent below the HSTW goal. See Table 8.
(Now we expect Mr. Malone to repair all of the damage he introduced and forwarded in his personal pursuit of love and adoration?)
What senior project are you referring to?

The last vote was just that - the result of Ron Malone's Vote for Revenge Against Our Children First.

The current vote here on judging Ron Malone is not based on election results; but current judgment is based on his true history of past failed practices, and what's happening now in the board room; And it is quite obvious that no one here is out of touch with Current Events or Ron Malone's History; and currently, no one here is going to forget the true history of Ron Malone, so that we can be sure that Ron Malone doesn't have opportunity to
repeat his past history of misallocation of district funds and resources.

Your petty attacks on other board members on this topix discussion will not divert attention away from Mr. Malone's dark history lesson given to this community in March 2012. It is just as much a part of Current Events as the video showing Mr. Malone's forced praise and worship of himself, interrupting kids from their classrooms, to celebrate his retirement last year.

Falsely accused? Tell that to WDTN. Educate Springboro is educating all right, educating how NOT to treat students. Must be something in the OSBLC training guidelines on how to treat anonymous students. It seems "children's first" means insult and mistrust the children first.

Just astounding. For someone who claims to care about our students, you sure are quick to throw them under the bus.(are you part of the OSBLC also?)

Once again you are on the minority side of the issue, just like last election.

The last time I checked, someone that might be disgruntled does not go around promoting ACTS OF KINDNESS.

And clearly, if you read the emails, Mr. Petroni assumed it was a student...or else he wouldn't have threatened to not allow that person to graduate. So he felt he knew who that person was.

Which begs the question - what do you think of Mr. Petroni's emails? You seem to be silent on the matter and continuing to attack Dr. Malone. Funny - diversion from the current issue.

And I would agree with one of your previous posts - those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it. There are plenty of examples in history where no one stood up to a bully.....and the bully felt he/she could do anything they wanted with no repercussions....

MollyGate is just astounding! It does appear for someone who claims to care about our students (one of our highly paid professional educators) that for sure Molly was quick to throw our students privacy out there into the union supported highly advertised campaign of retired educator Ron Malone for school board election, helping Boro Alumni "take back their board for the SEA.

Once again, even taxpayers who are on the minority side of Ron Malone's status quo (throwing our students under the bus putting the re-emphasis on the greedy financial gain
of the SEA union educator) have equal rights to just say no more dough for Ron Malone's status quo.

Exactly what "part of the OSBLC" are you suggesting has a role on this blog that was started in February 2008 in opposition of unnecessary New School Tax Increases? None of us had ever heard of OSBLC in February 2008 when we started posting opposition on this topix blog of the OSBA indoctrination that the Superintendent of Schools brought his recommendations from staff to the elected BOE representatives to be rubber stamped with SEA approval, and no questions asked from Taxpayers? If you will remember our school district HISTORY, it was only after Springboro parent and concerned citizen Kelly Kohls was elected to the board in November 2009, that Taxpayers heard during public board meetings that "the board should listen to the Taxpayers."

Thank You, You have just given us a reminded of the true history of Dr. Malone who is the proven bully who felt he could do anything he wanted by leading his students in a community wide protest against board authority in March 2012, just as Dr. Malone wanted and with no repercussions.

Now that Dr. Malone is no longer a school employee, he is now subject to interrogation and accountability to the Taxpayers and that is the reason why the questions regarding Dr. Malone's ability to use good judgment as a BOE elected official is an ongoing concern and will be a concern at least for the next four years.

Why don't you publish Mr. Petroni's "vile" remarks so we can all see what you are talking about? This smells more and more like a union smear campaign based upon innuendo, half truth, and outright disinformation. If they (read union) never publish the actual article, it is left to the mind of the reader to contemplate what may or may not be involved. So instead of arguing about the great and excellent education a child in our district is receiving they (read union) perpetuate anything to divert attention away from their (read union) failures. At least Weideman provides verifiable source material from third party sources.

Which is exactly why MANY of the things our former BOE president tried to push through (creationism, MLA, etc). were never done. The taxpayers were heard.(as they were when MSA were put onto the board!)
