Come on all you BOE haters and Educate Springboro believers. How come you're so quiet? B-O-R-O!
B-O-R-O residents are quietly listening to Larry Budd of the Dayton Daily News let his "fingers do the talking" about what's
happening in the board room (and the "court" room)....DO YOU HEAR WHAT WE HEAR?...
Not to worry no money will come out of the BOE pockets,
win or lose, we will all pay for it in the end.
For sure we will all pay for it in the end, as soon as Springboro School superintendent decides HOW MUCH "we the overtaxed already people" will pay for the school superintendent's inept leadership.
It appears that the school superintendent could not even lolligag a "legal" reason to fire Sarah Lord; and now has created a NEW ADMINISTRATIVE position, throwing the cost of his inability to manage his employees (without causing a law suit against the district) on the backs of the overbudened taxpayer.

SPRINGBORO ó The Springboro school board is expected to transfer a principal, who has filed a lawsuit against the board over her non-renewal, into a new administrative position.
On Tuesday the board is expected to transfer Sarah Lord, principal at Clearcreek Elementary School since 2006, into a new assistant human resources director position.
Lord was reassigned to a special projects position in the districtís administrative office after her principalís contract was not renewed by the board on March 24.
Among claims in Lordís lawsuit, her lawyers say the district automatically renewed her by failing to evaluate her during the previous contract period.
The lawsuit also accuses the district of creating ďa new and unnecessary administratorís positionĒ for Lord as a step toward terminating or laying her off.
On Monday, Lordís lawyer, Mark Byrne, said of the new job:ďWe believe itís a cover-up to hide their unlawful actions.Ē
In July, Lordís lawyers are scheduled to question board members in depositions.
Superintendent Gene Lolli said Lordís new position was part of the administrative reorganization of the district where more than 30 employees have been laid off as voters rejected five consecutive levies for new operating money.
Lolli and board members declined to comment on whether Lordís transfer into the new job was related to the lawsuit she filed earlier this month accusing the board of illegally non-renewing her contract and four of five board members of conspiring in a ďsmear campaignĒ against her.
Lolli said he was unsure how much the assistant human resources director position would pay.
In April, the board offered Lord ó who earned about $81,000 in salary last year ó a contract for a principal position with a base salary of $81,508, according to the lawsuit.
Lord is to be transferred into the new job during a meeting beginning at 7 p.m. at Springboro High School.
