Miss the Sept. 24 Stow-Munroe Falls Board of Education meeting? Watch what happened in this YouTube video added by a Stow resident.

The board approved a number of district-wide personnel changes, including awarding more than 30 supplemental contracts.

Superintendent Russ Jones recognized the retirement of "two educators who’ve spent a great deal of time with our children," referring to Steven Kalb and Deb Miles.

Kalb is retiring Oct. 26 as a physical education teacher at Lakeview Intermediate School after 35 years of service. Miles, a teacher at Echo Hills Elementary School, is retiring effective Oct. 31 after 25 years of service.

The board also approved a permanent appropriation resolution for fiscal year 2013.

Coach Kalb was one of the best!!! Thanks for all the hard work and dedication, everyone who went to Woodland Elementary appreciates what you did for the kids. Thanks!

Deb Miles is going to be missed greatly. She helped my child grow educationally and in so many other ways. Thank you Deb!

As I watch this meeting, my thoughts are... who the heck is running the BOARD !! Nobody has a clue as to what is going on. Mrs. Bulgren seems to be running the show. The president is in charge right ? The fellow who spoke at the mic was treated very rude, Is it true he wanted to make a contribution to the school with several other businessmen from Stow and Mr. Jones turned him down because they told him not to use it for IB but Jones wanted to ? I think Mr. Chesney has some clout in this town and for treatment he received just goes to show the true colors of disrespectful, lack of knowledge,and how unprofessional these people can be. And what is up with that Hillbilly storage shed ? Are you serious ? Is that part of the shoestring budget that has a budget of how much? $70 million ? You have the money to throw up a decent poll building to keep buses in. And while your at it put in a chassis bath for the underside for winter to help with the rust. I hear a ounce of prevention goes a long way. Why do we need solar panels ? I mean there is so many other things you use the money for..... maybe update the schools, fix problems with age and weather and get rid of the dead weight.

I agree chris, Are they going to have a executive session for the rude behavior of the board president towards the the man asking questions ? So Funny how all the board members ganged up on the man giving the speech on solar, why didn't they do that with the other company.I know why, its free !!!!!! really !! theirs nothing in this world for free theirs always a catch.Chris , doesn't the ib have its own funding?

Chris I disagree. I thought he was pompous and overbearing. I would like to know if he actually pays property tax or is getting an abatement.
