School Board Terminates Employee

By Staff | Jun 21, 2011

At a special meeting held June 2, the Wetzel County Board of Education accepted Superintendent Bill Jones’ recommendation of a professional employee’s suspension without pay and dismissal of the same employee of the Wetzel County Board of Education following a closed employee personnel hearing.

Such actions were taken against the employee due to that employee’s denial of a First Class/Full-Time Permit for Autism by the West Virginia Department of Education, making the employee ineligible to teach for Wetzel County Schools.
