Did you know that the above post on this Topix blog is dated NOVEMBER 10, 2010?
De Ja Vu!... feeling of having lived through same moment before? You Betcha, we been there, done that!..... and here we go again!
Fresh Faces of Todd Petrey and Terrah Floyd, as Super and Treasurer, have now evolved from the same ole status of past failed practices of the good ole boys, Baker/Dettwiller!
Everything "Old" is "New" again as reflected in Todd Petrey's Renewed Vision for his proposal for Community Engagement with community organizer, Jeff Stec, "Stating the Beliefs, Mission and Vision for Springboro Community City Schools."
Citizens...come to the April 3, 2014, BOE meeting, and hear firsthand how Todd Petrey's $12,000 Contract for Jeff Stec's indoctrination for We Need A New School Levy for the Children Campaign gets rubber stamped by the MSA/SEA BOE majority. Come see for yourself "How could a union controlled Board of Education waste our hard earned school tax dollars in such an arrogant and disrespectful way toward Springboro Taxpayers who so generously support our school district employees?"
Todd Petrey's proposal for Community Engagement is nothing more than a highly expensive advertising campaign for what our schools could be like just 10 years from now; if TODAY, Springboro stakeholders would "BUY" into our school districts greedy love of more money and agree that the time has now come to increase our school taxes, so that our SEA employees can have increased wages/compensation benefits negotiated into their next teachers contract coming up early next year, 2015!
How do we know this to be true? Ask for the list of members on this hoakey pokey committee. It is literally the NFSS and SURE leftist pro levy committee. Lisa Babb, Tiffy Carlisle, David Bwman, Sarah Jobe, and a whole host of other current and former members of the Malone, Stucky and Anderson pro levy extortionists club. Get the picture?

BTW Stuckey lies. See the district video for the March 13 BOE meeeting where he says what was going on with the coaches camps. The boosters did not sponsor the camps, coaches did pocket a lot of money frlom them and coaches did not have insurance. Stuckey read the State audit report geeze can you just do your job?

BTW Anonamous Panther is not a student and is a leftist doing further indoctrination of "give all to be nice and roll over and kiss each other, be tolerant" yada yada yada. You people that believe this was a students should then tell this"student" to stop being a coward. We are not stupid, when sending a positive message you do it with your name, when you have sinister motives and you are known to be a communist, you hide your name.

Love the dumba-- statement sent in by Malone essentially telling Petroni to resign. You have got to be kidding me Malone. You are the one that should resign for screwing the students at Springboro High school for so many years. I agree with Petroni you are the inneffective dilusional one that needs to resign.

Trained well, I did notice that Petrey will not allow any other citizens onto these committees. See March BOE meeting video beginning of work session. Rigano asks if some parents can be on the committee. Petrey says "no" we are fine and can't have too many.
News Flash Petrey, Mrs, DeRosa is a district employee. We see what you are doing in circumventing elected officials by getting your groupies to over-rule elected officials.
This is tyranny, oops narcisism 101. Fill your court with your supporters and shut the door to any others. Not exactly welcoming citizen input.

Ok citizens form yur won Mission, Vision Committee and make recommendations to the BOE. There we will balance it then.

Wonder if our school administrators followed up confrontation of this forced participation in the Pride Survey, with the staff member responsible; and perhaps put a token reprimand in the teacher's file "not to violate our students privacy rights" again?
Or, could it be that the parent's complaint,(standing up for kids whose privacy rights are violated by union classroom teachers) just fell on deaf ears in the Board room; blinded by our school administrators' love of our wonderful union classroom teachers, who can do no wrong in their violation of the laws in place to protect our students' privacy rights; but only if the union classroom teachers chooses to do the right thing in the students' best interest; instead of doing wrong in the best interest of the Union First best political interest?
After parents were told that students did not have to take the stupid, invasive, waste of time survey PRIDE survey once students were peeled away from parents and in the building where they were sitting ducks.

"Unforeseen issues" splayed out at board meetings yet this one was well seen. The whole HS was told to make these surveys optional yet, our children were forced to fill it out. This is abuse, telling children the PARCC is mandatory when it is not is yet again child abuse, using their protected private information for personal benefit is yet again abuse.

BTW the hysteria of "what if something happens", law suits and accidents and water-mane breaks- all to save money for adults. Come on Todd and Lee, News flash the district has insurance for everything you mentioned. Why are you telling fibs, do you really think we are all stupid?

The OEA/SEA BELIEVES: It's essential that they not only be teacher Unionists but teachers of Unionism.

The OEA/SEA BELIEVES: Classrooms in Our Public Schools should be used to CREATE a generation of students who support teachers and the movements of teachers for their rights.

The OEA/SEA does not even attempt to be Responsible about its desire to CREATE a Union Youth, as was proven right here in Springboro during the March 2012 Union Youth Protest against Board authority; and led by former SHS principal Ron Malone, during which time Malone's Union Youth group mocked at our newly elected conservative board members; and boasting that they would vote them out of office, after becoming old enough to vote.

How interesting it would be to know how many students among Ron Malone's March 2012 protest against Board authority were among those Boro Alumni email address used by Molly Wray in her over-zealous promotion of the BOE political campaign of two retired professional educators, Ron Malone and Dave Stuckey, who are now elected board of education members, and the bosses of Todd Petrey and Lee Vincent, who have given school teacher
Molly Wray a bag girl slap on the wrist (which expires in six months from her employment records) for committing this crime against our students. And that is just not Responsible behavior of our Professional Administrators; who are employed by Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners to "raise the bar" to highest standards of ethical behavior and professional behavior.

Did you know?

The first action taken by newly elected BOE president, Charles Anderson, was wasting taxpayers money by re-establishing OSBA membership; next the board voted to approve an OSBA contract for Treasurer's software, to assist the new full-time treasurer.

Did you know?

OSBA advocates AGAINST School choice, Vouchers, and Opportunities for Students and parents.

OSBA supports Common Core.

OSBA teaches school boards how to pass levies, promotes public education, even if they are failing, and limited transparency.

OSBA lobbies State Legislators to increase funding, but not accountability.

OSBA has joined with OEA in the formation of Strong Schools Strong Communities, an advocacy group to stop education reform by school choice.(Acts as an arm of the OEA)

OSBA has been in business since 1955. Since then, we now have approximately 72 unfunded State mandates, bringing into question just how effective can their lobbying be?

During this time, Ohio has improved to a C+ State by the quality count index. Most school districts will be in financial crisis in the next 5 years and 110,000 students have left Ohio public schools in the last 10 years.

OSBA price to Taxpayers is based on student count, and on how much the district spends per pupil. The more the district spends, the more the district pays, and the more OSBA profits.

Just Saying, most likely Malone Stuckey and Anderson have objection to the winning agenda of OSBLC, which has proven successful in our school district for the past two years, without the OSBA membership services of status quo past failed practices.

OSBLC advocates for school choice, Vouchers for all students and opportunities for students and parents.

OSBLC opposes Common Core and advocates for Ohio to fix an Ohio problem.

OSBLC teaches school boards how to avoid the need for levies and promotes transparency and the posting of all information the district can publish.

OSBLC lobbies State Legislators to either reduce the unnecessary mandates or increase funding to pay for them.

OSBLC listens to School Board members and Ohio Citizens on their concerns about education and their need to understand education issues for Ohio students.

OSBLC is a young organization, with Fresh Ideas, made up of Ohio School Board members and Ohio Citizens.

OSBLC encourages/coaches/school boards and their administrations to become more transparent, more financially responsive and responsible.

OSBLC membership fee is a flat fee per individual.

What kind of person is Coach Wilhite? "They told me to do it, so I blindly followed. I kept the money because they told me to?"
Good thing he wasn't told to put the kids on train cars and send them to camps. Oh, wait, he had his own camps. He had the high school players work the camps, didn't pay them and kept the money, because he wasn't told to turn the money in.
Even after Ed Wade was told by legal authority if he would stop violating the Sunshine Laws, the charges against the township trustees/ president could be settled with minimum cost to taxpayers; but Ed Wade just said no.
Guess entitlement of violating the authority of law at the expense of Springboro families runs deeply embedded in the roots of the Wade/Wray closely knit family of community unionism.

Shame on you Molly J. Wray! How dare you claim to be "teaching Christ" in your employment as a Union classroom teacher in our Springboro Schools! Your "Union Boots" that are made for Marching for social justice for union teachers' financial gain are stomping all over our Springboro Students privacy rights, which should be protected by state and federal laws! Your actions have nothing whatsoever to do with obeying, nor violating God's laws; these are man-made laws that you have violated; and your school administrators (your employers) have seen fit to allow you to Move on and just forget about this with nothing more than a 6-month Warning "slap on the wrist." And that is just not Cool to bring this disgrace upon your school!

Only you can know in your heart your personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; and while you may well be in the Lord's Army in your church's ministry; you are marching with the Union Army of Springboro Education Association, as an employed union classroom teacher where your only mission in that classroom is to "leave your religion in your church" and bow down to the false education gods of worldly knowledge; according to the National Education Association/ the Ohio Education Association/ and the local Springboro Education Association.

Mr. Williamson your letter should be shared with the local media. I have been fed up with the way the school system expects the tax payers to go overboard for teacher retirement, healthcare, and salaries while our own employers are requiring us, the individual employee, to pay an even larger chunk each year. Then we see how the public employee, including our own Doc Baker, is double-dipping and this whole levy seems like a scam.
Springboro Schools likes to make it sound like teachers are martyrs, "Doing it all for the children", but let's not forget that teaching in a school system like Springboro is a cushy assignment. Even their propaganda mailing where Springboro is compared to other schools in Ohio, which most of us have not even heard of, is a joke. Even my college statistics professor made it clear that data can be manipulated to support whichever side one wishes to support. The more accurate look at the data is comparing Springboro to schools in our own area and when we do this we see Springboro is doing just fine. Two of its neighbors, Lebanon and Waynesville, have lower per student spending ratios than Springboro. More money is not needed in March!
Above insight is posted on this Topix blog dated FEBRUARY 20, 2008!

It is now MARCH 2014, and It is still All About the Love of Money for Springboro teachers, and that is the Root of all Evil....

BUT, let's not forget that teaching in a school system like Springboro is a cushy assignment; and even though Springboro administrators/staff/MSA Community of Unionism shows NO RESPECT for Springboro Families and taxpaying homeowners; our civic minded citizens have generously supported our Springboro Schools in a most excellent way for decades; by providing a generous stream of revenue through our Property Taxes from November 2013 Renewal Levy through the year 2017.

Now we see in MARCH 2014 that school superintendent, Todd Petrey's Big Spending Proposal Contract for Community Engagement is nothing more than the old Renewed status quo "New Levy Scam" of David Baker's February 2008 proposal for New Taxes (which now has a proven history in our school district of FIVE past failed practices)....

Todd Petrey, who is the highest paid school employee ever hired by Springboro taxpayers, is asking the Board on April 3,2014, business meeting to approve his wasteful spending of $12,000 Plus to hire an outside community organizer, Jeff Stec, to promote community-wide advertising campaigns for the MSA agenda....

putting the re-emphasis on the financial gain of the union classroom teachers, even to the detriment of the physical aspects of our students classroom education (including safety and curriculum needs).

Stay Alert Parents! We must not allow the dollar signs in Todd Petrey's eyes to cover up the taxpayers demands of Accountability and Fiscal Integrity from our Springboro Staff and our BOE elected officials.

Have you heard around town that board member Ron Malone may be
prayerfully working, secretly, with the pastor of the Springboro Baptist Church to bring the teaching of Creationism into our school classroom curriculum; and that the new board's acceptance of the Donations to the free/reduced fees lunch program will create a more friendly acceptance of teaching creationism, if the new board majority proposes it to their own school administrators and union classroom teachers?

Seems that the Springboro Baptist Church pastor feels he should be "honorary" board member along with Brother Ron, kinda like the City of Springboro has it's own "elected

Citizens...come to the April 3, 2014, BOE meeting, and hear firsthand how Todd Petrey's $12,000 Contract for Jeff Stec's indoctrination for We Need A New School Levy for the Children Campaign gets rubber stamped by the MSA/SEA BOE majority. Come see for yourself "How could a union controlled Board of Education waste our hard earned school tax dollars in such an arrogant and disrespectful way toward Springboro Taxpayers who so generously support our school district employees?"
Todd Petrey's proposal for Community Engagement is nothing more than a highly expensive advertising campaign for what our schools could be like just 10 years from now; if TODAY, Springboro stakeholders would "BUY" into our school districts greedy love of more money and agree that the time has now come to increase our school taxes, so that our SEA employees can have increased wages/compensation benefits negotiated into their next teachers contract coming up early next year, 2015!
Why should Springboroians come to the BOE meeting this Thursday? To kindly ask Mr. Stec to pack up his community-organizer belongings, and drive it and himself out of town. Todd Petrey is attempting to abuse OUR tax dollars to pay an outsider, Jeff Stec (Petrey's close buddy) to do work that the majority of school board members in any given district would be capable of accomplishing. What's this about to Petrey? It's about passing along some business to a close friend.

Last November, this community voted for three (3) new board members with a general understanding that board members such as Malone Stuckey and Anderson ought to be capable of handling Jeff Stec's echelon of work. Why shouldn't voters expect these results? After all, since 2012, this community has watched (Kohls, Kuhl, Miller), David Petroni and Jim Rigano all work closely with Boro administrators to turn this district around from what was once a massive deficit to what is (at least, for now) a surplus, WITHOUT cutting spending in education.

If Malone Stuckey and Anderson, either individually or collectively, aren't up to handling their job descriptions, perhaps they ought to look in the mirror and take personal inventory as to why they chose to run for school board in the first place.

Worth Repeating and Never Forgetting

Is it possible Springboro Baptist Church was concerned about the bullying and other repercussions of giving the money anonymously by one of your school board members?

What kind of person threatens a kid doing a good deed and being anonymous?

Better Question, what kind of person are you defending a person that threatens a kid doing a good deed and being anonymous then criticizes other for not being anonymous!!!

Since we are on a roll, is it true Karen DaRosa, employed by the district provided email address to Educate Springboro. Also just heard she was working for their organization and would possibly have access to email address registered at the district. Don't know for sure but it is the rumor

Doug, why don't you chime in and let everyone know exactly how Educate Springboro got email address when people signed up for district updates. Once again, just a rumor but seems to be very true.

This would be a great finding for our Transparency project. Who would like to get to the bottom of this for everyone on Topix.
