Lucas County ESC

I understand that there will be a special meeting of the Lucas County Educational Service Center Governing Board on March 30, 2007, Friday, at 2:00 p.m. for the purpose of evaluating the superintendent. Sandra Frisch.
It is also my understanding that this special meeting has been scheduled Karen Krause, president of the LCESC Governing Board.
It is interesting to note that Section 1240 of the Bylaws and Policies of the Lucas County Educational Service Center which is cross-referenced to R.C.3319.01 (i.e. Ohio Revised Code) states, in part:

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (2 votes)

Ah, the LCESC ... the prior haunt of that corrupt fucko, Tom Baker -- who at least report (Toledo Blade, 2007 FEB 13) was hired to run (i.e. milk) the Performing Arts School of Metropolitan Toledo.

I expect nothing good from the LCESC. There's simply no way they didn't understand what they were doing when they gave Baker the right to grant school charters without consultation or oversight from the LCESC Board itself. That means that they were in on the scam; and, that further means they are just looking to do more scams, now.

One part of the TPS' claims against the charter schools is correct: they are run fast and loose, and that only leaves gaping holes through which money pours. It's unconscionable and must stop. Charter schools are for the education of children, not for the unmonitored profiteering of mafioso.

I apologize but I mistakenly omitted a word in the opening statement. The part that reads "this special meeting has been scheduled Karen Krause,"... should actually read "this special meeting has been scheduled by Karen Krause,"...
Oh, by the way, when Ms. Krause began this year's term as President of the Board, she stated the Board was starting a new tradition and then proceeded to present the outgoing Board President, who continues on as a member of the Board, with a gavel. The Board as a whole never authorized this new tradition, nor did the Board, to the best of my knowledge, authorize the expenditure for the gavel. Ms. Krause has also disallowed corrections to be made to official Board minutes. Furthermore, as I understand it, Karen Krause has gone so far as to have an attorney consulted about Board business without the authorization of the Board. Who is paying for that??? I sure hope it isn

Dig a little deeper here. You two have a great deal in common. GMTA

If you're here to tell me it's my fault - you're right. I meant to do it. It was alot of fun. That's why I have this happy smile on my face.


Someone sure got a little ruffled here for a bit.
Cannot people address the issues with factual information?

POSITION TITLE: Executive Director, Student Services/School Improvement/Administrative Services



I wonder how many people are aware of open public regional meetings currently being held during the month of April throughout the State regarding a new policy study of Ohio's Education system.
That is the topic of my blog entry today, April 4, 2007.

The regular monthly meeting of the Lucas County Educational Service Center Governing Board is to be held tomorrow, April 19.

I read over at Glass City Jungle that Angela Wallington Zimmann has announced her candidacy for the Governing Board of the Lucas County Educational Service Center.

A special meeting of the Governing Board of the Lucas County Educational Service Center is scheduled for June 21, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. in the Collingwood Center, 2275 Collingwood Boulevard, Toledo, Ohio 43620 for the purpose of evaluating the Superintendent (a 40+year LCESC employee) and the Treasurer.

If you are a registered voter in the four school districts of Anthony Wayne Local, Springfield Local, Washington Local, and Ottawa Hills Village, you are eligible to vote for two members for the Governing Board of the Lucas County Educational Service Center this November.
As of this date today, one candidate, Angela Wallington Zimmann, has a website.

I took a trip down to the Lucas County Board of Elections today to look at the candidate petitions book.
As of noon today, only two persons have taken out petitions for the LCESC Governing Board.
One is Michael W. Spahr of 6214 Steeplechase Pkwy, Whitehouse Ohio 43571. That person took the petitions out on July 23, 2007.
The other name has a notation in parenthesis next to it that reads "Took out for others" but it does not say who the 'others' are. The person pulling the petitions is listed as William M. Krotsky of 615 Miami Manor, Maumee, Ohio 43537. Those petitions were taken out on May 21, 2007. I wonder if those petitions might possibly be for Angela Wallington Zimmann who had announced her candidacy earlier this year and has a campaign website.
Incidentally, no one has yet filed petitions to appear on the ballot for the LCESC Governing Board. There are two seats up for election this year.

Well, Krause is a Toledo treasure, to be sure:

... which incidentally shows as #1 your Toledo Talk posting on the topic in February:

In response to your March 17th question about Tom Baker being "back", I assure you he is back, just not as the LSESC Superintendent. The Blade article I mentioned was very specific about Baker being hired to run that particular charter school ... but as his company, Maumee-based TNV Management LLC, along with his "partner" Vince Buccirosso Sr. I can smell the cufflinks and stale cigar smoke from here.

Unless you have been to a Board Meeting and seen Ms. Krause in the lead chair,shut-up! That goes for the Baker issue also, do you always believe everything you read? If so you are only typing out of both sides of your keyboard, so shut-up!

... I certainly can't believe what I'm reading right now. Isn't this a school night? Time for beddy-bye for you!
