  1. Really says:

    It sure seem to me that Lindberg thinks he is king of the hill and the School Board need to knock he down to the ground and fire him. He is bad for this District and has been destroying it since he started working here. Ever wonder why Mae Hawkins left? Wonder no more.

    Guess who from I.S.D.# 15 should attend this?

    IPAD’s next workshop discussing the Do’s and Don’ts of Government Personnel Data Workshop is on January 18, 2013 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at the MnDOT training center in Shoreview.

  6. Law Suit says:

    Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13, Independent School District 15, St.
    Francis, violated a school board member’s rights when it publically released
    certain personnel data about him, which were private, because it apparently
    considered board members to be employees at the time it released the data.
    Subsequently the board passed a resolution clearly stating that board members are
    not employees for purposes of Minnesota Statutes, section 13.43.
    Spencer Cronk

    Now I wonder what the school board will do with a major law suit and how much money the district has already spent on this farce. I guess Lindberg will be in court and there will be some more bad press for I.S.D. # 15

  8. By Reuters says:

    An Oklahoma teen has been arrested for plotting to shoot and bomb fellow students in his school’s auditorium.

    Oklahoma police arrested a high school student on charges that he was plotting to carry out a shooting and bombing massacre at his school, the Tulsa World newspaper reported on Saturday.

    Sammie Eaglebear Chavez, 18, was arrested at his home in Bartlesville, Okla., on Friday, the same day that a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

    Police alleged in an affidavit that Chavez tried to recruit other Bartlesville High School students to help him lure classmates into the school auditorium, where he planned to chain the doors shut and start shooting them, the newspaper said.

    “He also told them that if the students assisting him did not do what they were supposed to do, he would not hesitate to kill them and/or himself,” the newspaper quoted the police affidavit as saying.

    Chavez told classmates that he would put bombs by the auditorium door and detonate them when police arrived, the affidavit said, according to the newspaper.

    He was jailed on a charge of attempting or conspiring to perform an act of violence and his bond was set at $1 million.

    Police said they could not comment on Saturday. Court records indicate a hearing is scheduled for Jan. 11.

    An arrest warrant was issued on Thursday, a day after Chavez allegedly solicited classmates in the school cafeteria to help him carry out the plot. A student notified a school administrator, who called police.

    The police affidavit said Chavez had used a school computer to research guns, pipe bombs and the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in which 12 students and a teacher were killed in Littleton, Colorado. It also said he had told a teacher last week that he had bought a Colt .45 gun, though it was unclear whether he actually had one.

    Police say the school is cleared, but schools in the district remain on lockdown as a precautionary measure.

    NEWTOWN, Conn. — The gunman in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. is dead according to an official with knowledge of the situation.

    The official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is still under way says the man apparently had two guns. The school district remains on lockdown as police investigate the shootings.

    Police are reporting a number of injured parties, the nature of which are not yet clear, The Hartford Courant reported. There are unconfirmed reports of two shooters, one dead, one still at large, according to the paper.

    Some students were reportedly being treated for trauma. A dispatcher at the Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps said a teacher has been shot in the foot and taken to Danbury Hospital, but it’s unclear if that’s the only injury.

    One child was carried from the school by a police officer, according to The Newtown Bee, apparently seriously wounded.

    The school superintendent’s office says the district has locked down schools as a preventive measure to ensure the safety of students and staff. The superintendent’s secretary, Kathy June, says reports of a shooting are not confirmed.

    State police spokesman Lt. Paul Vance says they have a number of personnel on the scene to assist.

    The Courant reported that police said a shooter was in the main office of the school shortly after 9:40 a.m.

    Groups of students — some crying, some holding hands — were being escorted away from the school by their teachers, the Courant reported.

    A staging area has been set up for students and their parents near the school.

    From MSN

    According to the local ABC affiliate, June released the following statement: “Due to reports of a shooting as yet unconfirmed, the district is taking preventive measures by putting all schools in lockdown until we ensure the safety of all students and staff. All public and private schools in the town are in a lockdown situation.”

    The district is made up of four elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school.

    Newtown is in northern Fairfield County, about 45 miles southwest of Hartford and 80 miles northeast of New York City.

    From MSN

    Superior Court Judge Derek Johnson said if someone doesn’t want sexual intercourse, the body “will not permit that to happen.”

    SANTA ANA, Calif. — A Southern California judge is being publicly admonished for saying a rape victim didn’t put up a fight during her assault and that if someone doesn’t want sexual intercourse, the body “will not permit that to happen.”

    The California Commission on Judicial Performance issued a report Thursday saying Superior Court Judge Derek Johnson’s comments were inappropriate and a breach of judicial ethics.

    Johnson is a former prosecutor in the Orange County district attorney’s sex crimes unit. He issued an apology saying he was frustrated with a prosecutor during an argument in 2008 over the sentencing in the case before him compared to other more aggravated cases.

    The case involved a man who threatened to mutilate the face and genitals of his ex-girlfriend with a heated screwdriver before committing rape, forced oral copulation, and other crimes.

    I find this quite informative, yet perplexing!

  12. mike starr says:

    I had abolutely nothing to do with the removal of Mr. Rustad. And I have never given a bouquet of flowers to any former board member who was not re-elected. You must have me mixed up with someone else.

  13. WOW says:

    ADMIN…you ask for people who support the school board…and I post that I support the board’s decision…yet you do not post my post..YOU GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT AND POST THOSE WHO ANSWER YOUR CALL!!! Maybe you should run again for the open school board position….I am sure everyone will vote for you since you have ALL the answers for the school district. YOU SUCK!

    admin comment
    This is the first post I received from you, regarding this issue. I do not have all the answers, but I do my best to find the truth.

  14. Admin says:

    Before the board could discuss his removal Monday, Rustad had requested the case be removed from the agenda as he had received an administrative opinion from the Minnesota Department of Administration’s Information Policy Analysis Division (IPAD) regarding District 15 Human Resources Director David Lindberg sending an email Sept. 11 about his case to a resident of the district.

    Because the district considered its board members to be employees at the time the information was released, the IPAD opinion was that the district violated Rustad’s rights by releasing certain personnel data, which was considered private. can’t wait till Rudstad files a multi million dollar law suit against the 4 who voted him off and Lindberg for releasing private information on him. Lindberg you keep acting like a lawyer, so you should have known that releasing that information was illegal. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. The courts have stated that on numerous occasions and that includes the U.S, Supreme Court.

  15. More to come says:

    Wow, there are some facts regarding Janet Glover coming to light. Dig dig dig. She just had a hearing last October, while she is pushing for Mr. Rustadts removal.


    I insist she resign!!

    Do not let this die

  16. Behind it all says:

    I have a theory

    I believe Mr. Star is behind much of the pushing to have Matt removed. If you recall he gave a board member not re elected a lovely bouquet of flowers on her last evening. I am of the opinion that they intend to reappoint this x-board member.

    I urge the community to contact those in power and let them know your thoughts on who might be a good appointee.

    In cases like this, I am happy when I am wrong, so if this is not a possibility, please do let me know.

  17. Renner says:

    I am saddened they take the time and money to remove a 22 year old man who earned his right to be on the school board by getting elected. He was censored and admitted his mistakes, and we take the time and spend the money after this to removed him.

    I also find it interesting when looking at the public records of the other individuals on the board that we removed Mr. Rustad (who has no criminal history, not even a speeding ticket) for his “character” as Amy Kelly is quoted saying in the Star Tribune.

    “The lies continued to snowball, and then this isn’t just about plagiarism,” she said. “It’s about someone’s character, and what they did after the plagiarism plays a role here.”

    So a board member who has a public DWI on her record is attacking him for his character? This is a problem if members of the board are suppose to be role models Amy Kelly needs to go. Hew DWI was when she was 5+ years older than Mr Rustad. Shows poor character to me.

    Then if you take the time to look at Janet Glovers record its scary. This woman is a convicted thief and has also been convicted of writing bad checks. Yet we attack Mr Rustad for plagiarism due to his character? Janet Glover has so many legal judgements against her its scary. I counted 8 then I realized she has been married multiple times and found more under other names. This woman has serious legal issues. Character for our children? You decide but not the type of individuals I want my kids around.

    I think this board has just scratched the surface and it is going to get a lot worse than it already is. If I can find these legal histories about members I am scared what a professional attorney will find.

    All you have to do to find the information I spoke about above is go to the Minnesota Court Public Records (http://pa.courts.state.mn.us/default.aspx) and type in the individuals names under, Criminal history, Civil history and Judgements. Its all public information for anyone to see.

  18. To Admin says:

    I have a few points:

    First, I encourage you to read the article on Startribune.com and specifically look at the comments. You will see that several comments supporting Mr. Rustad that you posted to this blog were lifted verbatim from the comments section of the Strib. Could those same people have posted in both places? Perhaps. Is it meant to be ironic? More then likely.

    Also, you asked “Where are all those who support the board’s actions?” Apparantly they’re all on the Strib comment board. One comment supporting the board’s actions has 62 thumbs up compared with 8 thumbs down.

    Finally, in reading the response from Vernon Smith, it’s evident that you either a) weren’t completely honest with him, or b) thoroughly confused him. He makes reference to a “teachable moment” and a “special needs kid”. Does he even realize this is referencing an elected school board member and an adult? I can see why they refused to allow you to admit that as evidence.

    This is the letter the hearing Judge refused me to present or read at Rudstad hearing.

    Notice date of letter as the hearing was on the 14th.

    I have no problem with my previous work being published. I
    am flattered that this person found my work to have value for
    his community.
    I understand and appreciate that school is reacting to plagiarism. My
    personal opinion is that there needs to be correction but punishment is
    not proper. There are ways to deal with incidents of plagiarism,
    that take advantage of a “teachable moment” rather than making it a painful experience.
    Thank you.

    Where is all the support for the school boards decision to remove Rudstad ?????????????????????????????

  21. Viking Fan says:

    I wish Ponder would plagiarize the play of Tom Brady.

  22. Less money for the kids says:

    Censured a month ago, now the whole issue is re-visited and he is let go. What he did was wrong, but two wrongs don’t make a right. This sounds like the same type of logic someone who would vote for Michelle Bachmann would employ. I hope he sues the pants of ‘em and teaches them a little lesson. A hundred grand or so should send the message these folks need to hear!

  23. Blah says:

    blah blah, is this still in the news? Stop the witch hunt and get on with your lives

  24. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ says:

    This is a witch hunt at worst and an oversight at best. A lesson can be learned for all here and embarrassment and shame should have been enough, after all, its not ground breaking research or artistic creativity, its a newsletter forwarding an idea he agrees with. Yes, he should have mentioned the other writer or at least thanked him for expressing something he believes in. Anyway, anyone involved in school boards no how diverse opinions can be and how thick skinned one must be to get along. I hope St. Francis school board will remember this, “Before you embark on a journey of revenge dig two graves” sorry, don’t know who said it but it is often true. Especially in the age of litigation.

  25. Mr. & Ms Johnson says:

    It looks to me like his political enemies have found an excuse to attack him.

  26. District employee says:

    Lawyer up, lawsuit comin’ down the pike…

  27. District Resident says:

    I agree, this story has been “blown-up” in the press including the Start ribune. If you knew some of the stories of a current member of our school board member, you probably throw him of our school board. Since this story has been all over the press, Rustad really had to go. Do I feel sorry for him, no. But I really for sorry for the press for putting this out.

  28. District teacher says:

    No question plagiarism is wrong. There is no acceptable excuse for it. However, there seems to be no nexus between this plagiarism and his duties as a school board member. Raising expulsion one month after censuring Rustad makes me feel there is another agenda at work. Rustad was elected by voters and it seems better to let voters decide, based on his body of work, whether Rustad merits reelection when his term expires.
