The posting concerns the number of students who fail to score at least 75% on the Ohio Achievement Assessment math test for 7th graders.
The answer is 3 out of 4 children scored below 75%.
3 out of 4 children scored below 75% on the state standardized math test for the 7th grade.
Why do they keep deleting the posting of those results?

We will just keep posting this so Mr Petrey has something to do this summer.

The post they keep deleting is nothing more than an honest assessment of our school district's results on standardized state tests in math.

The fact that they reflect an unvarnished assessment rather than the euphemistic approach our school administrators and unions like to hide behind seems to be more than they can bear.

So once again PROFICIENT equals FAILURE.

Before you delete the post please at least have the intestinal fortitude to explain to the community how scoring 34%-56% on a basic math test is not failing.

How is it possible that only 1 out of 4 children in the 7th grade last year were able to score above 75% on the Ohio Achievement Assessment test?

1 out of 4 is passing, how is this acceptable. See the post following for a true accounting of the math scores for the Class of 2018 on the Ohio Achievement Assessment test given the spring of 2013.

Post 31717 went online at 7:42 pm Tuesday July 15, 2014.

How long will it last?

Please report the first sign of disappearance.

The truth has a funny way of coming back again and again and again.

The new numbers are coming out soon for the efforts put forth by our staff and students during the 2013-2014 school year.

Will the results mimic those of the past decade or will the Pearson ebooks save the day and reverse the downward spiral trend?

Let us ask Mr. Petrey how many more children scored at least 75% on the basic state math test this year as compared to last year in grades 6, 7, and 8?

It is a simple matter of tracking children's progress from one year to the next because the state provides us with all of the historical data on its website:

http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing/Stat...

Look up your child's grade, see how many questions were on the test and how many your child got correct based on that three digit number your child receives from the state to mask their achievement or lack there of.

Our school district leaders are wasting about $12,000 Plus per year sending out expensive, glossy post cards, about 4 times a year to the home address of about 10,000 households. That's about $3000 or so for the recent one received in the mail with the Many Voices Project invitation to attend a community meeting. Additional waste of taxpayers money includes the $12,000 contract for hiring an outside facilitator, Jeff Stec,(Citizens for Civic Renewal) to keep the momentum moving forward (back to status quo of failed past practices of running a continuous stream of unnecessary school tax levies, based on a false budget crisis).

The caption below the shadowy figures states: There are many voices in our school district. And we want to hear yours.

...... But, obviously, only the voices that are speaking the same old mantra of maintaining status quo; and only on the terms of union solidarity. Concerns of the many voices are such as:

"how the union solidarity team can best use this time to get to their ONE opinion and stay on task of modeling looking forward, rather than allowing conversations to return "into the weeds" of details or prior disagreements......

(if you listen very carefully to the many voices of the shadowy figures of union solidarity, you will hear them voice protection of board member Ron Malone from being held accountable for the wrong he did our SHS students all those years, wasting taxpayers money and school district resources, running our high school like a union shop; just like he is now running the Board of Education)

People in this community should be reminded that ALL five of our Board of Education elected officials were sworn into office in public service to ALL students, school employees, and community residents, upholding our Constitutional Rights; but we NOW have only two board representatives doing what's right for our schools and community; VERSUS three old men majority vote of Renewing status quo failed practices of the past.

Check out the board meetings agendas and minutes posted on the board of education page on the school website: www.springboro.org
to learn how our union controlled board majority members' Votes are hurting our children's classroom education and the future of our schools and community by their stupidly wasteful spending.

An examination of Ms. Wray's personnel file revealed no letters of reprimand nor anything else relating to this incident. Not a solitary notation. The file was provided to me by Ms. Terrah Floyd as part of a records request for public documents.

Given Ms. Floyd's above reply, one would certainly expect to see some mention of this incident in the personnel file of Ms. Wray, however trivial school officials believed it to be.

Why would Ms. Floyd not tell the truth about such a minor manner as this?

The results demonstrate the results generated by 7 years of math education in our Springboro school district.

Less than 1 out of 4 students is able to master 75% of the material according to the results posted by the state.

Less than 1 out of 4 is receiving an adequate math education in our school district after 7 years of instruction.

Proverbial wisdom teaches: "Just as it is harmful to eat too much honey, so also it is bad for men to think about all the honors they deserve!" Proverbs 25:27

Although our school superintendent was granted the contract employment security of $130,000/yr for five years as was negotiated with the board, to lead our school district beyond maintaining status quo; he quickly jumped on board with the SEA president and the insanely popular SHS principal (who were not happy with the children first budgeting Vision of Reform winning agenda, which is "ensuring that the children of the Springboro community receive an excellent education while keeping costs of that quality education affordable, by carefully adhering to responsible spending."

Mr. Petrey often testified praise and worship of the many honors that Mr. Malone had grown accustomed to expecting from our SEA members and our brainwashed SHS students, one of whom proclaimed in the local news that "her education could NOT thrive without her smile and have a nice day" encounter with the insanely popular SHS principal. And Mr. Petrey once said in honor of Mr. Malone's 41 years of experience in education, that it would take hiring three younger Professional Educators to do his job!

How hypocritical it that when all along Mr. Petrey was quite knowledgeable of the fact that Mr. Malone was running our SHS like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand. This tact 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.

Our entire community of SEA Union Solidarity for SURE joined in the promotion of electing this insanely popular Mr. Malone (who has been a SHS principal for 13 years) and a successful school board election campaign was run on the Boro Alumni's "endorsement" that Mr.Malone would win because he was "insanely popular." Unfortunately, the true history of a man called Ron Malone through official documents written by third party observers did not get promoted throughout the community before election day; and some voting residents did not receive this truth in the mail until the day after the school board election.

Now that Ron Malone is an elected board representative and "most valuable person" on the MSA team, Mr. Petrey has stepped into the boardroom bully pulpit, leading the praise and worship services of the "honors" due this great man, by becoming Ron Malone's "helping hands" in passing the collection plate for New Taxes, as this union controlled board majority stupidly wastes our hard earned school tax dollars, while our students first needs are left behind trapped in moreRon's status quo of past failed practices.

Todd Petrey Does It All For SURE!...... is the Vision and Mission Statement for the future of our school children and community under the union controlled leadership of boardpresident and vicepresident, Charles Anderson and Ron Malone.

Why is Todd Petrey wasting $12,000 plus of our children's school tax dollars, Paying It Forward, for the next year of Jeff Stec's citizens for civic renewal community meetings?
Isn't Jeff Stec a personal friend of Todd Petrey; and is it true that Jeff and Todd worked together at Lakota school district? Is it true that this Jeff Stec's levy promotion helped Lakota pass a school levy, after three failed ones? If so, then why did Todd Petrey tell Springboro taxpayers that his Many Voices Project, led by Jeff Stec, was not about a new levy campaign?

Number One - Isn't Petrey's District Policy committee made up of about 85% SEA staff members, who are making "recommendations" to Petrey's Mission and Vision Team?

Number Two - Hasn't Todd Petrey denied during public school board meetings,
the volunteer service on his district policy committee of one Springboro parent (who is a former school board president/Policy Committee member) declaring that he already had all the parents "voices" that he needed to hear from; and isn't that ONE voice only pro-levy, anti-children first, liberal union activist for S-U-R-E?

Number Three - Then why not end this waste of tax dollars to an outside facilitator, Jeff Stec, and accept the truth that hurts our kids that, simply put, Todd Petrey Does It All For S-U-R-E
payback to those parents among us, who worked with the SEA politics of personal destruction, tearing down good public servants elected as board representatives and the progress made during the past two years, doing what's right for our schools and community?

Number Four - Why would Todd Petrey lead his staff in the backward direction of putting re-emphasis on maintaining status quo, promoting false budget crisis trying to justify running continuous streams of new levies, when that failed practice of past previous school leaders led to the district's financial instability; and was the reason why Petrey left employment in the Springboro schools?

Number Five - Is there any doubt of another motive, except for sheer laziness and greed of "elitist" lusting among our Springboro Education Association members?
... and that is what union solidarity (anti-children) looks like under the union controlled leadership of board members Charles Anderson, Ron Malone, and David Stuckey.

"But by the November 2011 school board election in which two (2) additional "fiscally conservative" candidates won seats, SEA knew it was time to step it up, especially since negotiations were to commence in March 2013. The school board was freely stating its plans to move to a merit pay system, bring health insurance in line with the private sector and have teachers work in the same rigorous manner as others in the community."

That one did not last very long. I wonder the union does not wish to trumpet its "success"
educating our children?

Mr. Malone enjoys blowing the horn about the joys of PROFICIENT.

But then again when question what constituted PROFICIENT, Mr. Malone stated he did not know that sort of thing.

Let us all remind him that in the 7th grade PROFICIENT on the Ohio Achievement Assessment tests is 34%-56%.

Make it a point to tell him how proud you are to have a child who after 7 years in the math program in Springboro is grasping less than half of the material.

Fewer than 1 out of 4 in the Class of 2018 scored better than 75%

1 out of 4 students scored better than 75% on the state standardized math test for 7th grade.
