Do they have any news on the State Audit report, the one that everyone is so eager to bury and back pedal from?

The "everybody else does it" defense did not work with Mom for a good reason.

Who is Mr. Holtrey telling the truth to when asked about summer camps?

The Dayton Daily News report who he tells:

Q – What about the summer camp accusation?

A - Somebody made an accusation to the state auditor’s office that coaches were running camps (and keeping profits) and that was fraudulent.(The school board) won’t even share with you what the accusation was.… It was not an investigation. They were following up on an accusation that in my view was a flagrant accusation with the intent of causing problems that there was never any truth to.

Or the state audit investigator who Mr. Holtrey tells

"1. Springboro Boys Basketball Camps
A bank account was maintained by Troy Holtrey, the former Springboro High School head basketball coach and former ATHLETIC DIRECTOR who operated the camp. Mr. Holtrey indicated that he had been operating camps for approximately 20 years. He believes he opened the account in 2004/05 per the request of the Superintendent. Prior to operating his own bank account the camps financial activity was accounted for by the Springboro Boosters. Mr. Holtrey indicated that after he had paid for all of the expenses (camp workers, t- shirts, basketballs, etc.) related to the camp, he considered any funds remaining from the fees he collected to be his stipend.

I wonder what Mr. Malone thought when he read both of these polar opposite statements?

Particularly the first one.

And most importantly...
25) Helping awake a community that saw over 5,000 voters throw their support behind and elect Mr. Anderson, Dr. Malone & Mr. Stukey to the board!
Now we all know, that private business owner in Springboro and good citizen, Charles Anderson, was indeed elected as number one Springboro Board of Education member,
because of Educate Springboro's endorsement of Mr. Anderson's financial expertise and
capabilities of wise leadership.

Since the new leadership of our Board of Education MSA Team has only just begun,
community members must stay engaged in our local school government business meetings
(most of us through the TV broadcasts provided for our information) and stand firm on
holding our new MSA team accountable to conduct all Board of Education business in
an open and transparent manner before the public; within our Board of Education
policy/bylaws.

Let's stay focused on demanding that all District Committees are open to the public within the state's Sunshine Laws, which are the legal rights of all citizens. Let's stay focused on transparency and fiscal integrity in our school district's budget/finance affairs.

Our School Employees and Our Taxpaying Citizens of Springboro may differ in our individual emotional intelligence; but each citizen has a masters degree in managing our own
household budget; and each family has first responsibility to budget carefully for our
future well-being; and protect ourselves from being emotionally blackmailed by our local
government for unnecessary Tax Increases.

The illegal and unethical actions of Molly Wray before last fall's election epitomize what the MSA campaign was all about starting from day number one of their collective campaign.....
perpetuating a long history of union-influenced misuse-of-power in the core of this district's administration as well as with many of its teachers.
Molly Wray response:
"This is full of inaccuracies and is very biased, poor reporting. It's sad that the facts are slanted in order to create a story that will support your website's cause. Because I am a woman of faith, I trust the apostle Paul's words that reassure me that...'all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose'. I trust you believe the same and will pray that in everything you post in the future you will consider whether it is in the service of God. If you, in good faith and strong conviction of the truth, trust that what you report is accurate and truthful, not self-serving, then I am in full support of you as a brother. As for now, I feel like a brother and sister in Christ have turned on me for their own gain, not Christ's."

Whether or not Ms. Wray was given punishment by Lee Vincent and Todd Petrey is immaterial, and does not dilute the fact that Wray broke FERPA federal privacy law.
Early last fall, months before the election, Wray illegally used old district permission slips in order to access names and emails of recent Springboro alumni, only to then steer them toward Wray's personal website, where the campaign of Malone Stuckey and Anderson was promoted heavily.
The pathetic slap on the wrist Molly Wray recieved by Springboro schools administration...(a "letter of understanding" in Wray's personnel file, to be automatically removed after 6 months)... is an indication that our district's leadership feels as though they have license to put blinders on at any point in time and release information protected under Ohio state law and the federal government's Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

No dodge, but Educate Springboro is not directly connected to the teachers, coaches, administrators, or Springboro Education Association union operatives, nor to any of the aforementioned's email lists.

But if you would care to offer your insights on the questions below, that would be helpful to the readership at large.

Regarding the sudden interest in developing plausible, but risible, defenses for the indefensible acts portrayed in the State Audit report from December 12, 2013 and Mr. Holtrey speaking with the Dayton Daily News April 13, 2013.

Attn Boro Teachers!
Here you go... with the Todd & Tammy dog & pony youtube show!!

&fe ature=youtu.be

Community involvement? Call / email superintendent Petrey to ask him how that works. He may respond by saying the recent appointment of S. Bindeman (a habitually verbally abrasive individual) to the District Policy Committee is all about working to institute a higher threshold of "community involvement".

If "community involvement" is so important, why are Boro district administrators hell bent on spending $12,000 to hire an outside firm to come here and ask us what we want? Isn't better communication with the community part of the reason we take time out of our life to cast ballots to select what we individually believe to be the best board members? Isn't better communication with the community part of the reason there's an aduous screening process in place to hire the right people to be administrators in this, as well as other school districts? I suspect any one of Boro's administrators are capable of responsibly answering questions from members of this community... provided their professional opinions aren't effectively jaded by the everpresent influence of union-types in the OSBA and SEA.

This is just another instance proving to this community that our school administration has surrendered our children's minds to the indoctrination of the OEA/SEA union masters that a teacher in Springboro not only is expected to be a strong warrior for forced unionism; but the student is expected to yield individuality and self-identity to further promote forced unionism; even to the extend of violating the laws of privacy rights of the individual students.

It appears that Molly Wray has "stolen" the identity of Springboro students and used these to further promote the political campaign of electing school board members Ron Malone, David Stuckey, and Charles Anderson; and now our school administration will not hold this teacher, Molly Wray, accountable for that crime.

Until parents in this community unite themselves to the cause of taking back their child's minds from the indoctrination of forced unionism; and demand that our public schools support School Choice, allowing parents to spend their tax generated dollars on educating their children to "think for themselves" and not just to "think themselves" slaves to the
OEA/SEA union masters.

It appears to be a pattern of bad behavior among our Union Teachers and Union Firefighters in Springboro to go around "stealing" the ID of others in promotion of their favorite political candidate for Springboro School Board of Education, Ron Malone.

Wasn't CCFD union employee Veechi recently convicted of the same crime as Molly in violating private identity rights, when the CCFD union employee stole the name of our
former Board of Education President, posting on Topix favorable comments of Ron Malone's campaign for Springboro School Board Election?

The illegal and unethical actions of CCFD employee Veechi cost the Clearcreek Township taxpayers a big hunk of money paid to the lawyers; and the CCFD employee just got a slap on the wrist, secure in his Union Employment Protection Plan, just like Molly???

Fire official demoted for blog blunder
Posted: 10:59 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013, DDN

An assistant fire chief in Clearcreek Twp. was demoted Tuesday as part of an agreement ending a police investigation prompted by a complaint by the local school board president about someone stealing her identity in an internet blog.

The Clearcreek Twp. trustees voted unanimously to demote Christopher Vecchi from assistant fire chief for a year in a “last chance agreement.” Vecchi agreed to use sick time and paid time off to compensate the township for his pay since being placed on paid leave on Aug. 16.

Vecchi was suspended after Kelly Kohls, president of the Springboro school board, filed a complaint with Clearcreek Twp. police on July 27 that someone had posed as her in an internet blog focused on Springboro school levy issues, according to a police report.

The blog post was made on July 27 in a discussion of the need for a school levy in Springboro. The board recently voted to seek renewal of a reduced levy for operating funds after months of heated community debate. District voters have rejected five consecutive levies for new operating funds.

Vecchi’s initial disciplinary notice stated that he was accused of identity fraud, a fifth degree felony. Vecchi’s paid leave became a suspension through Tuesday’s agreement. He must pass a fitness examination to return to work, according to the agreement.“Any future misconduct may result in discipline, up to and including his termination,” according to the agreement.

Would you feel the same if she used your email address or your kids email addresses to send unwanted solicitations? What if she had sent vote for "democrats"and you are a republican? Or used the illegally gotten emails to invite you or your kids to a "pure romance" party?

It doesn't matter how much your kids liked her, it matters that she violated the law when taking personal information from the school and used it for her own agenda. That is against the law and the school district is wrong to not report that violation to the prosecutor. Look at what happened to the Franklin Superintendent when he sent home a newsletter that included his own opinion. And he didn't steal email addresses.(He resigned)

Do you really want your kids taught by someone who has no qualms about stealing personal information for her own use? Is that who you think is great? Get your head out of the sand. Stealing is bad. Teaching kids while stealing personal information is worse.
