"There has been 2 crimes committed in connection to Mollygate...
1) Molly Wray's violation of state and Federal student privacy laws
2) Springboro Schools administration not suspending Molly Wray

The following is a slice of a Springboro schools document which is available to the general public...
"...Ms. Wray unfortunately decided to use protected student information under R.C.§3319.321 and FERPA 20 USC 1232g for personal use. The Administration of the Springboro Community City School District discussed this matter with Ms. Wray and disciplined Ms. Wray in the matter they believed was appropriate..."

It is hard to believe this is the only time this has happened and we should know who this information went to and who else used this ill-gotten list.
Does Acorn have the private information of our students? Does the Democratic party, as Stephanie Bindeman is on the Democratic Central Committee, does she now have this list of our voting students?
What other information has been misused to work over our kids?
Is this the way they got the 99%ers to rally?
I am outraged by this information, aren't all of you?
Can someone call the board of elections and the prosecutor?
In January, a complaint regarding Molly Wray's violation of state and Federal laws was addressed with the ODE. Knowing full well Springboro schools had recently seated a liberal-majority BOE, Columbus made a decision to not act, but instead to push the envelope back to Springboro. This shouldn't be surprising to anyone. Whether it's the state and federal level, liberal educator bureaucrats know they have to have the backs of the local teacher constituency. They know they must occasionally stroke them in order to garner the votes needed to maintain their next-to-useless jobs; next-to-useless jobs that each and every working Ohioans are being forced to pay for. So thus, educators at the state level have a history of deemphasizing "mistakes" (a.k.a. crimes) of their local-level counterparts.

"...I would suggest that you would pursue your concerns with your LOCAL BOARD OF EDUCATION."

LOL! How hilarious!
That's akin to placing a herd of elephants in charge of protecting the peanuts!

The response from the Office of Professional Conduct seems to want to disregard the fact that the misuse of private information provided under the guise of confidentiality is a first degree misdemeanor. This crime is punishable by less than 180 days in jail and/or a fine of less than $1000.
If Molly Wray took the emails from her school account to her home wouldn't that be considered theft? If she did this and supported Petroni and Rigano would this be considered and handled differently?

Springboro Citizens for Responsible Spending should just say No Way to Mr. Petrey's proposal of Community Engagement, Stating the Beliefs, Mission and Vision for Springboro Community City Schools; wasting $12,000/plus of taxpayers money to hire a community organizer, Jeff Stec, to stir up strife community-wide, through 30 or so Union Stewards leading special interest focus group meetings during the next year, promoting their greed for the Love of More Money, which is the root of all evil. And where is the "Goodness" for our school children and community in that?

There's just no way for Molly Wray to do our students Wrong and then try to make it right by trying to target scapegoats. These OEA/SEA members are some of the worst people that Springboro families have ever had to deal with as to radical social behavior. They have the destruction of America in their minds and they are terrible people because their idealogy makes them corrosive. They OPENLY use children to execute their maniacal plans for social progressive changes at the expense of society and this defines their essence. The OEA/SEA wars of words against Springboro families are won by intimidating, threatening, and ridiculing others, in these union activists efforts to tear down the will to continue fighting. This is what the OEA/SEA Unionist First Teacher does to our Children First in the Classroom.

What a waste of excellent Ability for our classroom teachers to submit their will to do what's right for our school children, to the collective bargaining rights of Forced Unionism.

"there are people in the community that think differently than you do, and we walk among you" with our Beliefs:(1) Support School Choice and (2) Strengthen Protection of Our Students in Public Schools by holding classroom teachers Accountable for violating our Students privacy rights; No matter the reason, Molly Wray chose to ignore the Laws set in place to protect our students; and that is just a crime that will become a part of our School district history; and will be "discussed amongst ourselves" long after the Six Month reprimand is removed from Molly Wray's file. There are people in the community that do not need to pay $12,000 for Community Engagement led by Union Stewards to "articulate our identity and the community's collective philosophy..... and we already know that our school district leaders collective philosophy is the same ole tunnel vision status quo: We Need A New Levy for the Children's Union Classroom Teachers.

Unfortunately the admin environment has not welcomed parent's concerns about the teachers. The Board was never parent-friendly. It was always a "we know better than you what is best for your child" attitude. Maybe now it will change with our new board members.
Having spoken with a parents about the bad teachers I find that they are scared to complain during the school year because of their student being singled out, embarrassed etc. by the teacher. This happens. Then - when the year is over the parents are just glad to be done and rarely will go back and say anything. It is a small network and everything gets repeated. Parents who complain get marked as "pains". Why do you think these awful teachers are still teaching?
I find that I MUST speak up about this comment. My 2 children who graduated from Springboro Schools are now both in grad school...only AFTER they left Springboro did they blossom and become leaders... Our family had a terrible time with some teachers and the High School Principle...and YES, the children are retaliated against when parents have concerns or problems with teachers...if their ever is a platform to testify and show documents against the bad teachers... sign me up! There are many like me and we vote NO! til you clean up the teaching staff!
Can you believe that this "Teacher Dearest" sickness report is from this Topix blog dated December 8, 2011?

Isn't it time for people in this community to tell our highly paid Superintendent to forget about Community Engagement and Get himself Engaged in leading this Staff of Administrators and Teachers Dearest to clean up their own Mission of Corruption and Beliefs that our Students are their tools to implement Job Security for the union classroom teachers, even to the detriment of our students legal rights.

You bet it would be handled differently.

At this moment, it's likely Molly Wray would no longer be employed by Springboro schools... if things were different, and Wray had lured alumni onto her personal website in order to promote the school board campaign of Bitner / Vaughn.

Quite a number of Springboro students have been, or are currently being "told" by their teachers that "they must take" the federal pilot PARCC test that's being given this week. This represents liberal indoctrination at it's pinnacle. As citizens of the U.S., each student has the right to either take this test, or refuse to take it altogether. Springboro Parents, it's up to you to let your children know that their teachers are not hired and placed in classrooms to be manipulaters or provokators.

The pilot PARCC test is meant to assess each student for ...."whether or not they're on track for postsecondary success, to help identify students who may be falling behind and need extra help".

By and large, the previous statement amounts to a heaping pile of horsepuckey. The PARCC tests are a huge invasion of personal privacy. Students receive no education credit for taking the PARCC test. You or your children will never see the results of these tests. The results of PARCC. tests go to Washington DC in order to establish each and every of our students' profiles in Federally-supported "universal" education standards - the absolute disaster better known as "Common Core". Common Core is about universalizing public school curriculum standards, and taking control of curriculum away from local and regional control. shifting that responsibility to the Federal government. Springboro students: ask your parents how effective / efficient they generally believe the Federal Government to be! Texas has made a law rejecting Common Core. Teachers unions in New York state have come out against Common Core and the PARCC test.

Why use Standards rated by the Fordham institute to be lower than 6 States? Why not use standards of Massachusetts, rated by Fordham Institute to be an A whereas, untested Common Core standards are rated as a B? Common core standards are totally untested whereas Massachusetts is tried, tested and proven to be the academic leaders in this country. Does this prove that the agenda is not rigor or raising the bar?

Are you aware that the PARCC consortium (government paid test writers) who receives the data collected from the tests and is under contract to send it directly to the federal government? This data does not go to the State first it goes directly to the federal government; PARCC is required to send it to them. The State of Ohio has no choice and cannot protect this data on our students. The data collected now is minimal but will increase. There are many examples shown in documents now available online. Children will be significantly monitored and measured during testing and privacy invaded with a battery of personal questions.

A message to Boro's students....
Just because lemmings have jumped off the cliff in front of you, doesn't mean you must also make the ill-advised and fateful decision to jump.
When it comes time for your class to take the PARCC tests, if you wish, feel free to politely tell your teacher "No, Thanks". Your teacher is responsible for finding something else for you to do (i.e. study hall).
Immediately ask to see your counselor if your teacher or an administrator attempting to force you to take the PARCC test. Also, immediately ask to see your counselor if you see a teacher or administrator attempting to force the P.A.R.C.C. test onto any of your peer students. If your counselor doesn't give you a satisfactory response, don't be afraid to go to the district website, then simultaneously email the issue to all five school board members.

A lone 'rogue' board member does exactly what she's supposed to do and DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY of the district's administrators...Geeez, what a scandal! What a crime!
The REAL scandal in this town ought to be:
Can Kruse, Miller, Anderson or Ellis desist sucking up to the district administration long enough to put the administration to task on... ANYTHING?
Dettwiller & Beavers gripin' to the press about Kohls during their exit statements?
In my book, that's the same as two disgruntled ex-employees bi!(+!#& to each other about... "that mean ol' boss".
Can't stand the heat? Well then, get out of the kitchen!
Now that we're getting fresh faces as super & treasurer, this will be an excellant time for the community to help bring religion to the BOE! We need administrators that will WORK WITH our elected board members, not dominate them along with the teachers union as they did in the Baker era and obviously continue to do now!
Citizens...come to the Nov 16 BOE meeting and speak your mind.
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!

another been there done that moment! Remember when the public was told that the Students participation in the Pride Survey interrogation into the beliefs of our students and their parents was strictly voluntary?

And how did that work for us?

It didn't work at all, since a parent brought to attention in public board meeting that the Students were forced by staff to take the survey.

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?

The worst part of this is that it involves a captive audience (students) that lacks the knowledge and power to challenge what they are being brainwashed to believe in the classroom led by a union teacher, teaching unionism.
