Board of Education Minutes

Feb. 26, 2014, report on Channel 2 Denver News: "JeffCo pays $204,000 to former superintendent to leave"
This is the clarification Channel 2 SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED: Cindy Stevenson REQUESTED that the JeffCo school board allow her to leave contractual obligations early so she would be free to start her NEW job. So the bottom line is: Stevenson collects $204,000 from JeffCo taxpayers as the JeffCo school board accomodates HER REQUEST to to be released from her contract so she can start the NEW (high-paying) job she applied for and was awarded.
February 8, 2014 ~ New Reform members (Ken Witt, Julie Williams and John Newkirk) are yelled down by some 200 union and PTA agitators ironically chanting demands for "respect" amid FALSE CLAIMS of Stevenson being forced out.

BACKGROUND: Cindy Stevenson's tearful claims that she's being forced out as Superintendent because she “can’t manage this district with this board,” are a demonstrably FALSE NARATIVE:

FACT regarding Cindy Stevenson leaving her position as JeffCo School District Superintendent:
Her RETIREMENT was announced by JeffCo Public Schools in a press release DATED September 4, 2013(?) but POSTED November 7, 2013, (see Announcement URL) two days after the election (the day the new Reform Board Members were sworn in) ~ BEFORE she made ANY attempt to work with the new board members.
|| JEFFCO WEBSITE ||

Stevenson Press Release
Please note: The Press Release is dated September 4, 2013; the URL shows the release was actually posted November 7, 2013; the body of the Announcement only mentions "a Board of Education meeting Thursday night," (No DATE is given for the meeting mentioned in the press release, so there are inconsistencies that do not make clear the actual date that her resignation was tendered.)   TO TOP OF PAGE

"Forced out"??? REALLY?!?!??? Two days after the 11/5/2013 election (the same day the new Reform Board Members were sworn in), an article appeared in the Denver Post which reported that Cindy Stevenson had told the reporter, Joe Vaccarelli, "she had been thinking about retirement for a while."
Is this another example of a Leftist who just can't keep all of her "stories" (aka "lies") straight? || ARTICLE ||

JCEA Email re Board Meeting
TO TOP OF PAGE

JeffCo PTA president denies union involvent in Board meeting take-over through mob action. In a story posted February 12, 2014, by KUSA, Channel 9 News, Michele Patterson, president of the JeffCo PTA, who was at the February 8, 2014, meeting, is quoted making this emphatic (patently UNTRUE) statement: "It was not a union-orchestrated event by any means."
It is worthy to note that by the time KUSA posted this story, the email notice from JCEA to its members and supporters had been widely exposed, yet there is no mention of this fact in the KUSA NEWS(?!?!?!) story!! || KUSA ||

KUSA quotes JeffCo PTA president

The mob that resulted was encouraged by Leftist Board members Lesley Dahlkemper and Jill Fellman as they attempted to create the narrative that Stevenson was being "forced" out of her position as Superintendant when, in fact, her resignation was posted in November 2013 SEE SCREEN-CAPTURE ABOVE She subsequently asked to be released from her contract before the end of the school year because the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE) had offered her a position. || COLORADO PEAK POLITICS ||

Revealing Politics was at the meeting to record the typical incivility of Leftists demanding civility!! Dr. Stevenson, Lesley Dahlkemper, and Jill Fellman led the angry mob (in attendance at the request and direction of JCEA) in open rebellion until District Security requested that the meeting be shut down for safety reasons. After seizing control of the room, the mob continued its union love fest/pep rally for another two hours before declaring victory and slinking off to their den to continue scheming.

Cindy Stevenson's contrived narrative of being "the innocent victim of horrible, mean, Conservative bullies" who was "forced out" of her position as JeffCo Schools Superintendent gets more grotesquely preposterous by the day. The articles here from the Post and the Observer further expose her misrepresentations for what they are.

Four days BEFORE the February 8 meeting, this announcement appeared in the Denver Post announcing Stevenson's new position with Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE). || ARTICLE ||

Not only was Stevenson NOT "forced out" of her position, the new Board with a Reform majority was willing to work with her in every way possible to assist her in her REQUEST to terminate her contract ASAP so she would be free to start her new position with the Colorado Association of School Executives (CASE).

Interviews

With Reform Board Member, John Newkirk || Transcript ||

|| Track # 1 || Track # 2 || Track # 3 || Track # 4 || Track # 5 || Track # 6 ||

NOTE from a concerned JeffCo parent:
While reading the transcript, I was reminded that Ross used "having children in the schools" as the litmus test for being interested, and "not having children in the schools" as equivalent to being a "disinterested observer."

Look around you at the people in this country who are standing up against the tyranny taking place.  So many of them are middle aged, elderly, and don't have children in the schools.  Some never had children.  It does not follow that a person knows about what is happening connected with the education of children, if they have children in the public schools.  In fact, most often parents of children in the schools do not have time that people without children have, to study curriculum or go to school board meetings.  Some people have been observing for decades (or recently) the trend in public school education  that has been away from academic knowledge and moving toward "lifelong training" for "a life of work" in the international workforce.  Current public school parents may be unaware of the shift in public school goals, because they just don't have the time (or possibly the interest) to dig in and find out what is going on beyond meetings, school sports, planning, hosting school events, etc.

This idea that having a child in the schools automatically makes you more qualified or more interested, is one of the clever ideas that the Left came up with long ago to use against anyone without children in the school district.  That wipes out a large portion of the population.  They used it to discredit those of us who came to school board meetings in 2010 and 2011; and they use it to discredit people without children in the public school district who want to run for the School Board.  It is a real easy way to "prove a person is not qualified", in order to eliminate a lot of very highly qualified candidates for the school board.  We might not be able to overcome this wrong perception, but we can at least refuse to feed it and make it grow.

This can be a wake-up call for all of us to analyze what we say, checking to see whether we are just parroting "what people say", or if we are saying something connected to reality.

With Reform Board President, Ken Witt || Transcript ||

This lengthy February 17, 2014, interview of Ken Witt (by Nicholas Garcia of Chalkbeat) is well worth the time it takes to read. It helps bring a needed sense of clarity to the psyche of the new Reform Members of the JeffCo School Board ~ It is shown to be a calm, reasonable, thoughtful group who are very focused on making the Board responsible and responsive to the community they serve.
See ARTICLE WEBSITE

Summing up the situation and a powerful Call to Action:

Here's the real story about the February 8, 2014, JeffCo School Board meeting in which Dr. Cindy Stevenson feigned indignation over her treatment by the new School Board in order to stir discontent and whip union thugs to a fever pitch.  Dr. Stevenson, Lesley Dahlkemper, and Jill Fellman led the angry mob (in attendance at the request and direction of JCEA) in open rebellion until District Security requested that the meeting be shut down for safety reasons.  After seizing control of the room, the mob continued its union love fest/pep rally for another two hours before declaring victory and slinking off to their den to continue scheming. 

The bottom line is that Dr. Stevenson just completed her first job as a member of CASE. She (along with Dahlkemper and Fellman) led an angry mob in open rebellion against the unsuspecting new board members. This is war on the union's terms. The union will do anything it can to regain its absolute control over the JeffCo School systems. This is a story about money and power. The schools and the children are nothing but pawns in the union game.

It's time for concerned citizens to rise and confront the real school bullies - the Jefferson County Education Association (JCEA), the National Education Association (NEA) and PTA officials!

The JeffCo PTA President is at war with the new JeffCo School Board

The following items have been removed from the JeffCo School Board agenda, though additional information related to each has been provided:
JeffCo PTA President Michele Patterson – The following is a screen shot of Tweets exchanged between Michele Patterson, JeffCo PTA President, and Shawna Fritzler, JeffCo PTA Vice President of Membership that are clearly inappropriate. In their discussion with Witt and Williams, Fritzler says "Cleaning my guns tonight..." and Patterson responds with "Will you teach me to shoot?" Not surprisingly, the Tweets have been removed.

Insubordination of Communication Staff – The Press Release submitted by the board to Lynn Setzer, the district's Chief Communications Officer, on Saturday, February 8, during the NEA riot at the Board of Education meeting.

2014-02-08 JeffCo Board Press Release

In an act of outright insubordination, Ms. Setzer refused the board's requests to release the Press Release to the media.

JeffCo School Board Meeting, Tuesday, February 18, 2014 at 5:30 pm, JeffCo Ed Center
This was a special session so there was to be no public comment. (audio and transcript to come)

The following items were on the agenda:
• Superintendent Search - The board will interview two firms for the Superintendent Search.
• Transition Plan - The board will discuss operation of the administration after Cindy Stevenson leaves this Friday.
• JeffCo PTA President Michele Patterson – The board will discuss Michele Patterson's inappropriate use of JeffCo Twitter accounts. In one tweet, she claimed she wanted to sit on the couch, clean her guns, and learn how to shoot (in reference to new board members).
• Insubordination of Communication Staff – In an act of outright insubordination, the School District's communication staff refused to distribute the board's press release after last Saturday's meeting. The board will address the insubordination of these staff members.

What can you do?

Please let the union and their accomplices (Dr. Cindy Stevenson, Lesley Dahlkemper, and Jill Fellman) know what you think of their games Saturday, February 8, 2014! If kids in the classroom acted like these "adults," the JeffCo Sheriff would have hauled them to juvenile detention. Email the entire board (all 5 members) at board@jeffco.k12.co.us (Please be respectful and note that these emails are publicly posted.) Ken Witt, John Newkirk, and Julie Williams need your support.
