WLS BOE wants to get rid of superintendent Hickey?

Have no credible link to this story. Just some guy who likes to "make people famous" and "work his magic" on Facebook. He is convinced that the WLS BOE is "out to get" superintendent Hickey and are set to fire him on Tuesday. All over the handling of a sponsorship from Brondes. Not that traditional news outlets like the blade or the TV stations are the only source but I can find nothing about this other than on Facebook.

Apparently Brondes name is now painted on the basketball court and Hickey was negotiating renaming the stadium in return from a donation from Brondes . These are all functions that have to go thru the board of Education First! He has pissed off the board on a number of occasions by doing things he should not be doing without their OK. A regular meeting was held this morning and it was packed.

Board meeting that got a little intense at around the 18:00 mark.

Apparently they have been in discussions with Brondes for awhile about a sizable "donation" or advertising dollars in which Brondes would give $270,000 for athletic dept use. Brondes would get their name on the outside of the football field (Brondes Ford Field @ Whitmer Memorial Stadium) and two logos on each side of the basketball court inside the fieldhouse. Board feels that they should of got more money out of Brondes, despite Brondes balking at a larger number. Apparently, communication is lacking despite the superintendent sending 12 emails on the subject.

I watched the video yesterday. Not a big fan of Dave Hunter but I didn't see it has him throwing the (12 emails!) papers at Hickey. I don't really know what else Hickey has done to piss the board off. He may rub some people the wrong way and he is a bit of an attention whore. Having said that, he means well and has nothing but the best interests of the students, staff, families and district in mind. WLS has thrived under him and I think it would be a bad move to get rid of him.

Did he mention something about the staff getting free oil changes and car washes?

That seems a little strange...

Man, I've heard of a lot of shady things that Hickey and Snook have done over the years, some of which cost the WLS
taxpayers lots of money such as this.
http://usatodayhss.com/2012/whitmer-fined-50000-and-wins-by-ohsaa-for-violating-bylaw-2
They get caught and just play dumb. Hickey and Snook are both arrogant when they are not in front of the public. Hickey means well as long as he gets his way. He spend WLS money like a drunken sailor. His "he did it for the kids" is getting old. He gets his people on the school board then tells the board what he is going to do.
There is more to this story about Hickey that the school board must not want to get out for them to turn on him all of sudden.
Maybe it was all the thousands of dollars he spent on vacations for staff and students to visit Ron Clark multiple times.
Maybe the board found it how he had some his administrators go in front of the board at a meeting crying like babies when they were considering cutting their pay. Hard to say.
I'm surprised Hunter is attacking him so much especially after he got his whole family hired in to the district. . Pretty much a good old boys network. They need to clean house and start over.

Interesting reggie. Still can't find an answer to why or how this all came about other than some idiot on Facebook whipping the masses into a frenzy.
Um, he's getting fired.My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw a facebook post about it last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Huh TrilbyGuy, If you are referring to Jeremy Baumhower, he seems to be spot on with what is going on. Maybe you aren't following this close enough?

posted by Molsonator on Sep 13, 2015 at 06:04:01 pm     #  

Hickey probably put Baumhower up to it. Thats how he rolls. This Brondes fiasco is just the tip of the iceberg. Yes he did send the board members 12 emails telling them what HE was doing. The problem is the board never voted on it and told him it was ok to do. The board is looking into something else he did. Maybe it has something to do with his Religious Cult that he is trying to infiltrate the schools with. He reminds me of Mike Huckabee. This should get real interesting.

The Brondes deal actually was not a bad deal at all for the district, from a marketing point of view.

Brondes was going to pay them for the naming rights of the stadium. Who else would pay $27K a year for 10 years for that privilege? In addition, Brondes was offering special days for free oil changes for teachers and administrators, free leases for administrators, and fundraising opportunities (i.e., Brondes gives them a free car or a two-year lease at no cost, which they can raffle off). These deals are becoming more common: Taylor gives a car to a Perrysburg HS student each year; White dealerships gave cash and a fancy grill and trailer to the school that brought in the most test drives last year.

So, if the Board can't answer an email, is that Hickey's fault? If he's had problems with the board in that past, you can't blame the guy for wanting everything in writing.

Finally, if the Brondes deal wasn't enough money, how much do they have without the deal?

I have no problem with a public school making some marketing revenue but let's look at this a moment:

Brondes was going to pay them for the naming rights of the stadium. Who else would pay $27K a year for 10 years for that privilege?

I don't know, was it put out for competitive bid? The school is 'selling' an 'asset', although not a tangible asset. That does not change the school board's obligation to make sure they are getting the best deal they can and being fair to the community about offering up opportunities to everyone. Maybe that has already been done.

fundraising opportunities (i.e., Brondes gives them a free car or a two-year lease at no cost, which they can raffle off).

This sounds reasonable, because anyone can offer this up (unless the contract called for exclusivity).

special days for free oil changes for teachers and administrators

Now we have a problem. Unless this is a contracted 'benefit' to employees, this would fall under 'gifts' (IMO) to public officials, and there are ethical issues involved. The value of an oil change would hardly be called de minimus I would think.

free leases for administrators

Ditto from above, only to add that no way would a lease be considered de minimus in value.

I'm not for or against the superintendent in question, but all contracts have to be approved by the BoE. I don't think they can delegate that authority.

Absolutely correct, and if that's were Brondes heart is at , they should be giving them out right now, not as part of a quid pro quo marketing agreement.

Any administrators getting that free lease yet?

The word is there is two and possibly three lawsuits against him for having sex with WLS employee's. When I say against him in reality WLS will be the one paying out some money. Don't think he'll work his way out of this mess hence the Jimmy Swaggart comparison. I thought he would of been busted for some scam he was pulling in his love for Ron Clark. I feel sorry for his wife to have to go through all that humiliation. The school board handled this situation terribly, letting it get out of hand.
Hickey's lemmings are going to be in for a rude awakening!

Ron Clark is not evil, The movie The Ron Clark Story tells about his accomplishments. However does the story of working with disadvantaged kids in a charter school relate to the WLS situation? The academy is expensive and Hickey has sent many people there. Reggie seems to have a good grasp of the situation, however this is the first time I have heard of the lawsuit thing.

Mr. Hickey is like the Teflon don of superintendents, nothing sticks.
The WLS board decided not to fire him. Wonder if it had anything to do with if they did fire him they would have to buy out his contract. (three years left, maybe close to half a mill.) No morals clause?
The board conducted a "confidential investigation". They are still not saying what he was accused of.
Part of the reprimand reads:
"The board has issued a written reprimand and directive for future conduct for his unprofessional judgement and conduct, and directed him to avoid even the appearance of impropriety in his interactions with both female and male staff members of the district."
WTF does that mean? Why the cover up? Embarrassing for WLS no doubt. shouldn't this be public knowledge?
Slap on the wrist. If no big deal say so. Maybe he didn't do anything so terrible. The school board should be reprimanded for how poorly they handled this whole fiasco.

Nolan's Sep 17, 2015 Toledo Blade story

The letter, released to The Blade today following a public records request, states that Mr. Hickey has shown a “repeated display of lack of judgment and inappropriate interpersonal interactions over a significant period of time.”

“The board has found that your behavior toward district staff members, including the extent and volume of your communications, were perceived as overly personal, as well as inappropriate and intentionally intimidating,” the letter reads.

Mr. Hickey was ordered by the school board not to interact or communicate with anyone he believes has filed a complaint against him, "including staff members and board members," other than for school business. He is to avoid the appearance of impropriety or retaliation.

The board also directed him to avoid communication with staff that could be perceived as "too personal, inappropriate, forward, or flirtatious," and to not use private communication methods with staff.

I never heard of this guy until this thread, but he seems qualified to run for political office.

Board President Thomas Ilstrup said Wednesday that the allegations against Mr. Hickey were serious and that his job had been on the line if the facts of the case had proved the allegations true.

???

Were the allegations true or false? If false, then why the reprimand with the ominous language?

Mr. Ilstrup said at the meeting that the investigation, which was conducted by legal counsel hired by the board, would remain confidential because of attorney-client privilege.

The Blade has filed a public records request for that investigation, and is awaiting a formal response from the district.

I think that Hickey had an explanation:

Mr. Hickey said he was limited in what he could say, but that the gist of the matter was that he had a "familiar" leadership style, and that he was cautioned by the board not to get "too familiar."

Eh, no big deal. Washington Township can relax.

Our favorite cheerleader has a 'too familiar leadership style,' and he may get elected mayor of Toledo for a fourth time.

Good morning. WLS board is keeping this hushed up citing lawyer client privilege. I don't know how they can get away with not telling what he was actually reprimanded for.
Anyway, here is the latest scoop. As in most things it came down to money. The board was set to fire him but the boards lawyer reminded them that they would have to buy out his contract, so it was on to plan B, the letter. What supposedly he did was this.
Hickey, a very religious and family man was having an affair with a married teacher. She wanted to end the affair but Hickey was supposedly stalking her. She was in a bind because she was at fault to. Who to turn to? Being a Creeker like Hickey she turned to
her Creeker minister. The minister went to the board to get Hickey to stop stalking her. This wasn't Hickeys first indiscretion but no other woman would come forward for fear of losing their job. Hickey and the board both lied and said it wasn't sexual. What is interesting was when the board members were getting all these death threats Hickey or the assistant super never came out told the public to stop it. What is funny is that the Teflon super got away with it.

They may not be able to get away with it.

"Go. Away."

Why should reggie go away? Ignore the thread if you are uncomfortable.

I don't live in the district, but this shit is on this site, and the story has become fascinating.

Which reality is true?

Also, it's a logical question. If the allegations were considered serious, but then the allegations were seemingly not true, then why the reprimand with all the language?

How is this not a possibility?

"The board was set to fire him but the boards lawyer reminded them that they would have to buy out his contract, so it was on to plan B, the letter."

(You mean the deranged Facebook mob didn't save his ass?)

From yesterday's Blade story

If he fails to follow the directives in the letter, he could face further discipline, which includes the potential nonrenewal of his contract in 2018, or termination.

The money angle makes sense from an Excel standpoint.

Anyway, I hope that the Blade digs in. Better tell the Blade to go away. Good luck with that. They have lawyers too.

Off topic, but I had something related happen to me this week. I won't go into too much detail, but did have an attorney call (who I'm friends with) and ask what I said on TT about a local business. My comments on TT were allegedly hindering a possible sale. Upon discussions with the attorney, it was a totally ridiculous excuse from his opponent in the case, but it highlighted the fact that there are plenty of people that read this site without ever commenting.

I won't go so far as to say 'not going to happen, ever', but it is very, very, very doubtful. I've served in public office, and we used lawyers and consultants in order to keep information from being public. An investigation into personnel issues done by an attorney at the client's request in order to determine if someone broke the law or their contract is almost certainly going to be attorney-client privileged and not subject to FOIA requests.

Another common example is hiring a consulting firm to do the preliminary work on hiring a key administrator. Especially if you have critics of the board, this keeps things like initial resumes, screening information, background checks, reference checks, etc. for ALL the applicants from being public information because it is maintained by the search firm. Once the search is narrowed down to top candidates, than it becomes public.

What about providing some insight to sensible questions?

  • If the serious allegations levied against Hickey were false, then why was he reprimanded?
  • If the serious allegations levied against Hickey were false, then why didn't the school board reprimand the person or people who lied?
  • Were the serious allegations levied against Hickey true, but the school board's hands were tied?

The letter:

On three occasions within the letter, the phrase "even the appearance" was emphasized. Why?

  • ... you must make every effort to avoid even the appearance of impropriety in your interactions with all staff members.
  • You are to avoid even the appearance of retaliation.
  • ... your future conduct and interactions must avoid even the appearance of impropriety.

Hickey was banned from school property, but he was not suspended, he was not on paid leave, and he was not on vacation. He was on "vacation." Double quotes.

How can that not be viewed as strange?

How often are school district superintendents banned from their own schools' property?

I don't disagree, jr. It is strange.

If what is speculated by Reggie is true, how can they come out and say the reprimand was not for any type of relationship? In that case, why hasn't the "accuser" come forward publicly?

Maybe the reprimand was preemptive to cover the Board's collective butts?

Again, this situation is strange. Similar to the Bell "groping" incident where "someone" comes out and says something derogatory and has nothing to support it.

Again, it's strange... I agree.

My issue is with the way "Reggie" has been posting and what I perceive to be, trolling. Similar to 6th Floor above and his similar posts that we have all read.

I have no skin in this one either way, I'm in AWLS and do not know Hickey.

Good morning. A year or two ago Patrick Hickey was sent letter by
a organization such as Americans United (can't remember the exact one ) demanding that he quit bringing religion into the public school he was head of or they would file a lawsuit. Someone must of turned him in. He still brings loads of "Volunteers" (Creekers) into the schools all the time for various things. He has toned done his recruiting quite a bit since that letter however he still is getting people to join his church.(head football coach for one). Why do this people join? Is it because Hickey showed them the light or job security? I don't know. What I do know is that religion should be kept out of the public schools. I have no problem with religion. I have my own religion and believe in God, but don't feel the need to make other people worship their way. Maybe "cult" is a wrong adjective to describe the Creekers but they remind me of Jehovah Witnesses who go door to door to recruit. Its all about money. The more members the more money they bring in. If your really good at something you don't need to go around telling everyone how good you are and try to talk people into feeling the same way you do especially in a public school setting.
This is just my opinion.

Hello again. As far as an agenda yes I have one. I few years ago I've had run ins with Hickey and his sidekick snook. I've seen the other side of these arrogant and cocky individuals. As far as Hickey goes , I take great pleasure in seeing a liar and a fraud finally busted and exposed for the person he really is especially one who hides behind a religion to hide HIS sexual perverted ways. (Can you say Reverend Pitts).
READ THE LETTER. Now let me translate it for you. Hickey, stop
threatening and intimidating woman WLS employees into having sex with you for fear of losing their jobs. Don't use your position of power to satisfy you sexual appetite.
The only reason this predator is still employed is to protect the identities of the victims and of course money. Hickey's response,
" My leadership style is familiar" Do you think?
This is the piece of shit running my school system.
Flame away. Spin it anyway you want. The truth is right there in that letter. Hopefully the blade can uncover the actual accusations
and bring it to light so all the people who are still in denial and slurping down the Hickey cool aid can be set free.

Proud Whitmer grad here as well as my wife. Lived in TPS and were going to move no matter what when our girls became of school age (mostly house size constraints). I had reffed elementary (5th and 6th grade) basketball for fun for five years and one of his sons for two of those years. With the way he treated us refs (and the "Athletic Director"), I told my wife that we would not move to WLS. I wasn't going to subject our kids to that kind of leadership. Not to mention, I have never been a fan of a couple of the board that have been there since I was in high school.

While I do not share the same kind of enthusiasm as reggie, I have heard from two different places what he has said to have truth to it - at least the affairs. The funny thing is, none of this is new. Look what happened back in the late 90s and early 2000s when Tucker got off pretty much free of charges. Then you have the issues with Shook and the two others at the same time with sleeping with students...Casey Reason (principal at the time) just vanished...

I figured, for the sake of my kids, it was time to move elsewhere and get out of there. It's sad because I really loved the WLS system when I was there.

Good morning. Avinsurer, there is no doubt that many family's such as yours has felt your pain concerning these individuals. A parent has no recourse. If you challenge them on an issue your having they go on the defensive, get arrogant and dismiss you as a troublemaker. All the administrators cover each others ass. I could easily name a dozen instances where someone should of been fired but every thing just gets swept under the rug. Snook has been sleeping with students for years as well as being seen drinking with them. Nothing is ever done. Hickey makes sure he gets school members elected to the board that will do his bidding. My kids are gone from WLS. As far as Hickey goes, any individual who uses religion to hide his true devious behavior is one vile, sick person and shouldn't be in any position of power!

When Whitmer got busted a couple years back by the OHSAA for moving in athletes to the district, Hicky said he prayed with the OHSAA official as part of their meetings. I read that back then and thought "oh what a load of shit".

Speaking of...I never figured out why Whitmer got busted for all those athletes, but never Nate and Nick Holley. It was common knowledge that they lived on Head O'Lake Road in Ottawa Lake. They could be seen coming & going daily. The Whitmer senior signs with their names on them were even displayed in the front yard.

All the scrutiny Whitmer was under for prior athlete residency issues, you'd think OHSAA would have been paying closer attention.

Maybe Toledo City Councilwoman Lindsey Webb will provide a quote.

On Sat, Sep 12, 2015, a gaggle of Hickey supporters appeared at a school board gathering. From the Sep 12 Blade story :

Scores of people turned out for a board of education work session early today to be heard on the matter, with many of them speaking in defense of Superintendent of Schools Patrick Hickey.

Also speaking today was Lindsay Webb, a Toledo city councilman who is the mother of a kindergartner in the Washington district. She said the district would decline quickly if it dismisses Mr. Hickey, because excellent leaders are hard to replace.

“I love politics. I know how to play politics,” Ms. Webb said. “Up to this point, I haven’t come close to Washington Local Schools races. That will change starting today.”

Was that some kind of a goon threat by Webb?

Why were so many Hickey fanatics angry at the school board, which appeared simply to be doing its job of investigating a serious matter?

Since Webb is a politician, it's understandable why she would be opposed to truth and transparency.

I'm guessing that the Hickey supporters will glum onto this part of Nolan's story, published in the Sep 23, 2015 issue of the Blade:

... the district or its attorneys say the investigation concluded that the staff member was not subjected to harassment ...

Now it's about the definition of harassment.

harassment: aggressive pressure or intimidation.

After reading the Sep 23 Blade story, it appears that Hickey harassed more than one person.

She claimed that the coworker had told Mr. Hickey to leave the woman alone in a conversation that “stemmed from a conversation that took place after [the coworker’s] family discovered a series of inappropriate sexual messages that he sent to her.”

The husband says that soon after his wife asked Mr. Hickey to stop contact, Mr. Hickey then “started sending explicit messages to another [redacted] colleague, how did that work out for you? Have you explained that to [redacted] yet?”

She details efforts she took to end communication [with Hickey]. She says she blocked his personal cell phone, his Twitter account, she blocked his work phone, and got a new phone number. She sent him an email telling him to only contact her for work-related reasons. She claims he tried to get her new number from a coworker, a claim Mr. Hickey denied in an email to her husband.

The husband wrote that he objected to Mr. Hickey carbon copying their emails to his wife, and said that “I am sure you would think I was trying to intimidate you if I copied your wife. Again, Please just leave my family alone and find a way to focus on your own.”

“Do not threaten my family,” the husband wrote. “I am not threatening you with any public embarrassment, I am simply trying to protect my family and my professional career. I have not looked to punish you; living with yourself is probably punishment enough.”

Again, from the reprimand directed at Hickey:

The Board has found that your behavior toward district staff members, including the extent and volume of your communications, were perceived as overly personal, as well as inappropriate and intentionally intimidating.

"Dudes, I'm golden."

More from the Sep 23 Blade story:

Mr. Hickey released a statement Tuesday after The Blade asked him to respond to the allegations. He says he will not respond to or debate any issues related to the investigation.

Hickey's statment - pdf file

Here's an excerpt from his statement:

It is my understanding that the news media has requested and received the public records regarding a “concern” raised by a staff member ...

Hickey quoted the word "concern" which I infer means that Hickey believes that the concern was not real. Nothing to see here. Even though the school board called the allegations serious.

Thankfully, he has religion to hide behind. We're all fallible. Practicing. Ask for forgiveness. Blah, blah, blah.

More from Hickey:

... and as indicated in an August 27, 2015 e-mail to the human resources director, the staff member did not wish to submit a formal complaint.

Was that because the allegations were false, or was it because a female was afraid to file a formal complaint against a popular male superior?

Another bizarre Facebook comment, posted to today's Blade story:

I think whoever the woman is, needs to get over herself. Probably shouldn't have played with fire to begin with!!!! As far as her husband....why are you still with her??? How embarrassing!

Okay. Apparently, all the blame belongs to a female teacher and not to the male superintendent.

When the superintendent of a public school system sends "inappropriate sexual messages" to a coworker, that's playing with fire, and that's beyond embarrassing.

First off, while there have been allegations, nothing has been proven in a court of law. I think that the online community and Toledo as a whole has to be very careful about making assumptions or rushing to judgement before ALL facts are known.

TROLL ALERT!

Let me be the Devil's advocate...

There was a very large group of people in the US who, during the height of the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal, stated flatly that it was "all about sex. It was between Clinton and his wife. As long as the economy is good, why should we care?"

Applying the same logic, why should anyone care about any of the allegations? WLS is well-regarded and has excellent test scores and athletics. Shouldn't that be the driving force?

As long as those two metrics are good, anything "extracurricular" (if anything did in fact happen, which at this point is only an allegation) is nothing to worry about and should simply be between the two respective parties and their spouses.

Isn't this simply a churlish reaction from the prudish right wing rearing its ugly head once again?

Something I have wondered about regarding the WLS - and there seems to be a few on this board who pay attention to these things:
Why did WLS hire a Principal and Assistant Principal for Whitmer only to accept their resignation after just one year?
I don't mean to imply anything like what is being alleged/insinuated/reported on here - but it is VERY unusual for a district to hire a Principal and for that person to leave after just one year.
Both women came from TPS (Rogers HS) and, after their one year stint at WLS, returned right back to Rogers. That is weird!
I don't know if the board or the super was not happy with their performance, or if they chose to leave on their own accord - but it is very odd and might be somehow connected to the Peyton Place that WLS seems to be.
Anyone know anything?

"... why should anyone care about any of the allegations?"

I'll take a stab at answering that question with an outrageous leap of logic.

Toledo City Councilperson Lindsey Webb supports Hickey.

Since her kids attend the Washington Local School district, then it's understandable that she would be concerned about the happenings in that district.

I live in the Toledo Public School district. Webb is a district councilperson, and I do not live in her district.

But Webb makes decisions on council that do impact the entire city. I question her judgment, regarding her apparent "blind faith" support of Hickey because maybe that kind of impaired judgment leads to bad decisions on city council.

And why the threatening tone toward the Washington Local School Board from Webb and from other Hickey supporters?

“I love politics. I know how to play politics. Up to this point, I haven’t come close to Washington Local Schools races. That will change starting today.”

In my opinion, politicians should support the concepts of investigation, truth, and transparency. On this Hickey matter, it appears that Webb disagrees with those notions.

Councilperson Webb chairs Toledo City Council's Utilities & Public Service Committee, and one function of this committee is to oversee the quality of our drinking water, which is consumed by Toledo and many surrounding communities.

This area cannot afford to have someone chairing Toledo's public utilities committee who may make decisions based upon emotions rather than data.

How about that. I tied Hickey to our drinking water. I said that it would be a leap.

Also, when a city councilperson speaks publicly to support an extremely popular male figure who may have engaged in some form of workplace harassment, then maybe that is yet another reason why victims of harassment, especially females, are afraid to make formal complaints.

Dow wasn't afraid to complain about Bell, but I don't think that she filed a formal complaint with law enforcement or whomever. She seems to be begging for media attention on Twitter. Make it official and let the investigation proceed.

A big deal was made about Webb speaking out in support of Hickey. Fine. That's okay. But this should not be one-sided. I support info from the other side. Thank you Toledo Blade, especially Nolan Rosekrans.

It's just info. Nothing changes with Hickey. He keeps his job, along with the reprimand.

But this new Blade story may tip over the potato carts of some people, and in my opinion, that's a good thing.

WoW. The truth will set you free. Great job Nolan exposing this looney bird. The emails speak for themselves. Hickey is one sick puppy. I don't care what it would cost , the board needs to fire him NOW. I would also suggest the wording in future contracts contain some type of moral clause.

In all those emails everyone is using the word "relationship and friendship " instead of the correct word, Affair.

I'm assuming those people didn't file formal complaints because
they were in fear of losing their jobs knowing what a stranglehold
and power Hickey had in the district.

Even Hickey is acting like its no big deal and the matter is closed as far as he is concerned.

I've heard comments about all the good Hickey has done for the
District. When I ask them to name one they say all the levee's he got passed. He got passed? WLS district would of passed those levee's without him. Also, how does this make WLS look now?
What an embarrassment.

I was wrong about the minister part. The stalked couple were not Creekers. They went to their minister who then went to Hicks minister who then contacted the board. Sorry if I offended any Creekers.

To all the people who were taken in by this guy don't feel too much like a sap. Hicks is a master manipulator and con man.
He'll probably squirm his way out of this.

As bulldog noted, when Whitmer got busted a couple years back by the OHSAA for moving in athletes to the district, Hickey said him and Snook did nothing wrong. REALLY (in my Jim Carrey voice). If that was true why did the district have to pay a $50000.00
fine then?

@Progress22, From my understanding those two woman came highly regarded to Whitmer. The reason they quit after only one year? You guessed it, Hickey. They were tired of being micro manged by hickey . He was being too controlling and trying to use them as puppets to do his bidding. They got out of there quick. If you went back since Hickey got into power, you could write a book on all the shady things he's done and got away with.

The Human Resource person kept the complaint, Err I mean "concern" and kept it at her house. This seems strange. Should she have gone to the board at this point? Was she sitting on it for the woman's sake or Hickey's? Some people were questioning how
someone that young with no experience became head of Human Resources. Not sure about this.

These are two woman we know about now. You don't think there are other ones who never came forward?

I'm glad that Hickey is finally being exposed for being a liar, cheat and a fraud. I do feel bad for his wife and kids to have to face this humiliation.

I am sure that a lot of people feel mislead now that the truth is starting to come out and Patrick Hickey's response to this whole thing is a bit shocking.

Current status: Patrick Hickey's leadership is mortally wounded, the board is very weak, the district is in a bad place all because of Hickey's actions. The only way the district could move forward is for Hickey to step aside and if Hickey truly loved the district he would do this knowing he put himself, the board, and the district in a very bad spot.

But if I was a betting man, I doubt he will do this because he seems very arrogant. But this makes people like myself wonder what else is there, because a situation like this means there is usually more going on and an arrogant leader thinks that he can get away with other things too.

I am guessing the school board feels like they dodged a bullet. He is clearly very popular out there and firing him would have been a huge upheaval. My question is whether the underlying relationship itself was ever investigated. Maybe they didn't because the relationship itself wasn't the issue in the "concern." Or maybe they tried to and the teacher wouldn't cooperate. Wouldn't a romantic relationship between Hickey and a teacher be grounds for dismissal?

I'm having trouble believing there is no morals clause or other way to fire Hickey if they needed to if he was having an affair with subordinate. That's just a big glaring drafting oversight if there is no morals clause. (I haven't read the contract and don't want to, just saying).

Does the Board have an obligation to dig any deeper than the "concern" of the teacher? I mean, it's easy to prove the emails were sent back and forth. And the emails (at least from Hickey) refer to a "friendship."

posted by Ace_Face on Sep 24, 2015 at 02:07:35 pm     #  

AceFace, they also refer giving each other "DNA" - I have friends, but I never give them DNA (in any way). Look at his behavior, I think that says everything - it is quite clear what is going on. She decided it was not good and he wanted to continue and spin it like it was nothing. He purposely is doing things to make things seem normal and he knows his words will be scrutinized so he is not going to say love. The problem with Hickey is how he knows he caused all of the problems and has put the district in a bad situation, but yet he wants to ride everyone's ignorance of his problems and use them to keep his job. That is not leadership and his credibility has sunk to single digits.

I am sure that a lot of people feel mislead now that the truth is starting to come out and Patrick Hickey's response to this whole thing is a bit shocking.

Current status: Patrick Hickey's leadership is mortally wounded, the board is very weak, the district is in a bad place all because of Hickey's actions. The only way the district could move forward is for Hickey to step aside and if Hickey truly loved the district he would do this knowing he put himself, the board, and the district in a very bad spot.

But if I was a betting man, I doubt he will do this because he seems very arrogant. But this makes people like myself wonder what else is there, because a situation like this means there is usually more going on and an arrogant leader thinks that he can get away with other things too.

Chris, I agree with you. The WLS board is weak and handled this whole situation poorly. Part of the problem for this was hold Hickey has had on the board for years. I believe that reprimand letter was given instead of termination out of fear because they were scared some of Hickeys lemmings would burn down their houses.

Dr Sanders was very popular at TPS, but once he left and we saw the amount of cheating going on to get his good results, people sobered up and never gave those like Steven Flagg credit for saying there is smoke here. But I learned that those who feel invincible are usually making some very big mistakes and don't care either.

In looking up Tweet histories of terms, and newly missing Twitter accounts, I was able to piece together what probably occurred. Some people think that if someone is blocked this means that is the end of it, but other Twitter accounts can look at histories and old Tweets are usually not removed from third party sites for a long time if ever. And "familiar leadership" type Tweets to missing accounts can usually lead people to figure it out. And a free tip to everyone out there, blocking someone for stating the obvious makes that person even more curious about what is up (hint to Patrick - have thick skin and you are welcome to follow me - I would never block you).

I am formulating a couple of information requests myself looking at levy campaign last year and more to test Hickey's statements about what this whole thing is "not" about. If you have suggestions on other topics to look into, please send them my way.

Good morning. The mention of Hickey having sex with that teacher and her friend is never mentioned. She/they won't say.
Say if this was actually true. Wouldn't this be even more bizarre and demonstrate what a screwball Hickey really is? He was stalking her, jogging 17 miles past her house and going to get "take out" food at a restaurant 20 miles away to see her because of friendship? Either way that guy is nuts and should be terminated.

posted by reggie on Sep 26, 2015 at 09:30:22 am     #  

He didn't jog 17 miles past her house. He went on a 17 mile round trip jog that went past her house. There was a confrontation with the husband. Hickey emailed the husband after that. Even tweeted about his jog. From my understanding, Hickey really had to go out of his way to make her house part of his 17 mile jog.

Thanks for the update, Chris.

The lawyer humorously writes in the cease and desist letter :

Your defamatory statements have already damaged Mr. Hickey’s good name and reputation ...

I think that Hickey damaged his own alleged good name and reputation.

Hickey's reprimand did not come from a blog post. It came from the school board.

The Board has found that your behavior toward district staff members, including the extent and volume of your communications, were perceived as overly personal, as well as inappropriate and intentionally intimidating. Your repeated display of lack of judgment and inappropriate interpersonal interactions over a significant period of time has jeopardized your leadership of the District, and for which you are hereby reprimanded.

You must use better judgment in your interactions with, and comments to, staff members. You must avoid any communication or action which might be perceived, in any way, as too personal, inappropriate, forward, or flirtatious; you must exercise even more caution if you must communicate with a staff member in a private setting or manner.

You must never make comments or take actions which might be perceived as intimidating or threatening.

Are you referring to this part of the reprimand?

You must never make comments or take actions which might be perceived as intimidating or threatening.

Even though the above sentence was its own paragraph, that directive may only apply to Hickey's interactions with school employees. It may not apply to Hickey's interactions with anyone else.

The WLS Board would need to explain their intent with that paragraph. The paragraphs before and after used the phrase "staff members."

I suppose that it's possible that other parts of the reprimand could be interpreted in multiple ways.

Always conduct yourself in a manner which is consistent with conduct expected of a superintendent of the Washington Local Schools. Stay well within the parameters of the Licensure Code of Professional Conduct for Ohio Educators, Board policies, administrative guidelines, and the directives of this letter.

There is to be no retaliation against any persons who raised concerns, any staff members, or this Board or any of its members, for this letter of reprimand. Your conduct following receipt of this letter, including any social media posts -- professional or personal -- or discussions with community members or others, must demonstrate your highest character.

Implied, inferred. Sounds like work for lawyers.

Wow, Hickey don't even know when to shutup and let things die down and go away. People have short memories. If he would of done his usual spiel about " its all about the kids" and " I love all the kids", things would of blown over like it never happened. Hell when he gets his people reelected to the school board they will probably give him another raise (supposedly he is the highest paid superintendent in the state of Ohio now). Threatening to sue people who talk about what HE did. What an arrogant asshole.
Heard that some staff members were talking about that he had to leave Addison high School in Michigan when he was there in 1990
for some reason. Would love to know the story on that.

I doubt that he's the highest paid superintendent in Ohio. This 2014 article about superintendent pay in metro Cleveland has several who make more than him.

No idea what, if anything, happened in Addison.

However, I will say this...others are saying that the fact that he got a recommendation letter from Addison is proof that nothing happened. That doesn't really prove anything.

Back then, it was common to rugsweep student/teacher relationships. I grew up in Michigan not far from Addison and could tell you 2 different teachers that were forced out of my school for relationships with students. They are still teaching today in the other districts they got recommendations for to go away quietly.

Getting caught in a student teacher relationship back didn't necessarily have the repercussions it would today.

Is it common for public school districts to have television commercials for general marketing purposes? (Not talking about special event or levy ads.)

I get private schools marketing, because they have to attract tuition paying students to stay open.

What exactly is the point of a public school district paying for TV advertisements and doing marketing? Just curious.

(Asking generally...I know Washington Local probably isn't the only school doing it. I just don't fully get why.)

posted by mom2 on Oct 14, 2015 at 10:26:17 am     #  

It's not necessarily unusual. Districts might buy advertising to fight student "flight" to those private or charter schools. TPS has done the same thing with its "TPS Proud" campaign. If students stay in the district's schools, the district gets to keep the tax dollars, rather than losing those dollars to the charter schools.

"Other than the dark recesses of the internet, no one seems to care."

That applies to every topic.

"If I don't care, then it's irrelevant." -- quote by a caring person

It's still an issue up north and even outside Toledo because of the school board election next month. People who cannot vote in the election are involved in some form.

I've always been amazed by the fierce loyalty Toledoans have shown toward their high schools even when the people graduated 20-plus years ago.

Oct 13, 2015 - Toledo Blade - Washington Local has 3 seats on education board to fill - "Voters hear candidates’ platforms"

About 200 people attended a forum Monday evening at Whitmer High School for seven candidates running for seats on the Washington Local Board of Education.

Nearly 200 people? That seems like a lot. Is that typical for any school district?

I believe that the goal for one side is to stack the school board with Hickey Yes-people. That's a smart move for alleged shady people like bad-guy pro wrestlers.

"Win if you can, lose if you must, but always cheat." - Gorgeous George


Off-topic: In my opinion, no part of the surface web can ever be known as the "dark recesses of the internet." Not even Facebook, which is child's play.

The "dark recesses" description belongs to the Dark Web or Deep Web, running over the Dark Net. It doesn't matter what you call it. The websites URLs will look something like this: http://74ypjqjwf6oejmax.onion

My helpful tips for dropping below from August 2014, which means the info is probably outdated.

*** I agree. I think that a lot of it has to do with the fact that so many people who live here are from here and are not transplants.

It is customary to ask someone in Toledo, "What high school did you go to?"

When I lived in Tampa (with a huge transplant population), people would customarily ask me, "Where are you from?" as natives of the Tampa area were few and far between.

Is it odd that Carmean followed Hickey to Wildwood Athletic Club, a gym that she doesn't belong to, and hung out in the parking lot?
Then she filed a TPD police report against him when he texted her about it because he saw her.

How do these people have so much time on their hands? Isn't this the same behavior you would expect out of 16 year olds?

To the casual observer, it seems like she might have baited him into reacting to the stalking.

From the article: Mr. Hickey said staffers had complained to him that Ms. Carmean was investigating him and that her questions made them uncomfortable.

Since when can't a board member talk to staff? And if the board member suspects any sort of wrongdoing, shouldn't she be talking to staff?

It's 2015. The web is not a fad. It has existed for 25 years.

The World Wide Web (www) is an open source information space where documents and other web resources are identified by URLs, interlinked by hypertext links, and can be accessed via the Internet.

But the concept of "linking" or hypertext existed even earlier with standalone apps or other internet-enabled programs.

When you reference outside info or make claims, then you must provide the links to that info. It's not anyone else's job to find and post those links.

Surprised nothing more has come up; got a text news alert from WTOL last night - two actually. First one said Hickey was filing an ethics complain against Carmean and Langenderfer and then the second said a WLS parent will also file an ethics complaint against Langenderger. The news article linked to the parent complaint said it is because Langenderfer revealed confidential information from the boards' executive sessions.

It is my understanding, having participated in executive session, that the members involved can talked about whatever is said but it allows them to keep things quiet. Only if they are dealing with confidential information related to employment - such as medical records - would there actually be an obligation to keep the information confidential.

I will be interested to see exactly what they think is an ethics violation.

From Hickey's FB page:

"An open letter to Terri Kern,

Terri,

I resigned to heal the district, nothing more, nothing less. A defamation suit will require you to prove that I am a pedophile (someone who has sex with someone under the age of 11), a sociopath, and a narcissist (all being professional diagnoses). You will need to produce the three WLS women who were going to file suit and the 200 blind copied emails. You will need to have proof (dna?) that I had sex outside of my marriage. You will need first hand accounts and not heresay or witnesses who claim they saw sex. I have now been damaged. I had 10 to 20 more years to work. The math is in the millions. I hope to meet you some day. I wish you the best."

Looks like Hickey may have resigned, but hasn't moved on, lol. I don't know where he got his information, but to prove defamation of a public official, it has to be shown that the defendant acted with "actual malice" which means the defendant 1) knew the statement was false and b) acted with a reckless disregard for the statement's truth or falsity. Defamation suits by public officials are almost never won because the standard of proof is so high.

The WLS school board is NOT considering firing Hickey because of the Brondes fiasco. That was just the icing on the cake. I said he reminds me of Mike Huckabee. Come to find out he is more like Jimmy "I have sinned" Swaggart. Stay tuned.

Hickey was escorted out of the game tonight at Perrysburg by Wood County Sheriffs.

Apparently he re-entered the stadium after being asked to leave the area behind the end zone.

He is a complete idiot. If he isn't being tossed out of sporting events he's making up facebook and twitter accounts to be disruptive to the district's business.

Many think Hickey is behind the WLS Watch Dog facebook and twitter accounts.
