Now that I am a registered voter in Wetzel County I will be sure and NOT vote for any of these clowns on the board now. They continue to let our children get raped!!! When will it end. There is more going on at that school than people know about. More than one teacher that needs fired!

ImJustSayin - you are absolutely correct. This is not a new problem in our schools. I remember 20+ years ago, there were at least three employee/student "couples" that I knew of, and nothing ever happened to the employees. It was not a big secret.

Seems to me we have zero tolerance for student behavior, why is it not the same for teachers?

Well I hope the new Superintendent gets some backing soon. But as usual elected officials are just winners of popularity contest, not always the best qualified!

Since both parties are of legal age, both should have their names mentioned.
