I hear that there is a certain teacher at the B-U Middle School who is taking illegal kickbacks from a certain company for steering business their way. Has anyone else heard this?

It's true! I know that at least one person has complained to Scott Lampinen and he hasn't done anything about it!

This is great. What kind of kickbacks? If they are caught they should be fired and prosecuted! Who is the teacher?

In addition to getting free athletic shoes, clothes, gym bags & accessories, every single year she gets FREE SEASON TICKETS TO THE WVU FOOTBALL GAMES! In return, she makes everyone under her make purchases from a certain company and even tried to influence some of the teachers at BUHS. There is at least one new BUHS teacher who is following her advice.

I would not doubt that it is true. Somebody is definately getting paid. I don't understand why these coaches think parents can afford, "fashion" for athletics in Middle School! I suppose some parents can, but not this one!

The Upshur County Schools Superintendent, Scott Lampinen, was told about this last year & for some reason, has done absolutely nothing about it. I think that the students & especially taxpayers deserve better!

WOW Mistress...JEALOUS much...? Did you not get invited to the WVU game or what??? Loyalty rewards from vendors are certainly not unheard of and are not illegal or even unethical. No different than the Sheetz card or the Kroger card in your wallet... Sheetz and Kroger reward you for your spending. They are not FORCING you to shop there. What concern is it of YOURS anyway?

Evidently you don't know much about the law or else you would know that it is illegal for her to accept these gifts. It has nothing to do with me getting invited to the game & everything to do with the fact that she is abusing her position & using her influence for her own financial & personal gain. According to the law, she could accept a token of their appreciation, something worth $25 or less but that's it & since you obviously have not been attending the WVU games, let me assure that her season tickets are worth much, much more than that!

My two season tickets cost me $1500 a year. Not cheap by any means! That includes the parking pass.

THEN TAKE IT AND THE EVIDENCE TO THE BOARD. THINGS DON'T GET DONE BY HEARSAY OR BY POSTING ON HERE. Evidence is a must.

I don't understand the big deal, schools do it all the time. They use products such as pepsi and get paid to do so, well they call it a donation. So big deal if she gets tickets or cloths. So you really want to ruin a womans life to prove a point? Shame on you,

All of the information was given to the Superintendent a very long time ago. Since he isn't doing anything maybe the readers of TOPIX can motivate him!

No, I'm sure it will just look like people starting drama. Letters, petitions, or going to the STATE board are how to get things done. Just acting like a kid and talking about people on the Internet behind hidden usernames.

If in fact someone is receiving something of cash value for using a certain vendor is probably against policy and morally wrong let alone costing parents more money for supplies. Where i work it is against company policy to accept anything over 25 dollars in value and absolutlely no cash at all
