Hey folks, I was just wondering if anyone was aware of the kind of people Doddridge County has employed to work in our schools? I happen to know that the county has hired a man that Mon County refused to hire because of his improper behavior with students? What happened to doing background checks to ensure the safety of our children? I have issues with the children in the county being around such a threat and wanted to see how others felt about the situation in this county.

Was this person charged as a preditor or were there unfounded complaints --- or ---- so many complaints the school system up there either told him to move on and then didn't warn DC when they called for a reference????

Plus -- you need to remember that the police checks aren't done until after the BOe approves the hire with the stipulation they have to pas the background check -----

CALL YOUR BOE MEMBERS IF YOU KNOW THIS!!!!

As far as I know, his references were just briefly looked over and he was hired quickly. You can call BOE members if you want they know things are not as they should be with this guy.

I have a daughter who is going into her sophomore year at the high school. I'd like to know if she's going to be around a pervert and what I can do to keep her safe.
Why would someone be hired without a proper background check?

They are NOT hired until they pass their background check ---- The BOE approves them with the stipulation they ahve to pass it before they are really hired --- Can you imagine the BOe payig for every person who applied for a job?????

BUT AGAIN -- LET THE BOE MEMBERS KNOW WHAT YOU KNOW

Well how about where he will be working and at what job? How about a little more info. I understand leaving out the name, but tell the rest of it. The public needs a little more info before they start call the BOE! thanks

This person will be working in all the schools. Because no formal charges were ever made against this person, BOE members say nothing really has ever really been done wrong. Right? I can just tell you one thing, I wouldn't want him around my daughters.

SO no charges were brought???? And the Mon Co BOE is probably limited by law with what they tell in their reference --- So what is our BOE going to be able to do to take care of this situation if YOU WHO DOES KNOW, doesn't tell and just gripes on topix?

Well the BOE might not of known about this guy, but look at who they have driving our kids on the buses. They have Mart Siger who is one of the biggest drug heads, Roger Nicholson sho who was one Of the biggest pill pushers at Simonton Windows, And lets not forget Richard Kinney, has a short fuse for a tempor, is only there for the money because he can't keep any other job. Oh and has K C Lambert for a squeeze who also has a major pill.

Again I would encourage the person who has the info on the new hire to call Coffman or a BOE member ----(You know, they don't have a crystal ball or are mind readers!)

As for the drivers ---- They are drug tested on a random basis and what they were maybe is not what they ARE!!!

DID you just say call Coffman ?? now thats a joke
! Oyler and him and others in that group are nothing more then snakes in the grass.If they are Buddys with anyone you report they will "LOOK INTO IT" and most the time just allow it to blow away just like all this stuff we are talking about NOW ! good luck talking to a wall ,Your better off calling or e mail the main people in Charleston wv if you ever even want a voice? maybe even email the local news dept,but wait!!! do not some of these people in the school system have familys who work for channel 5-12 news teams ?? I dont think much will happen even if we call them... Guess what??? we are now back to ground ZERO.

Coffman is just another part of this puzzel that gets us know where,he is so into himself and thinks his word is that of a GOD !!maybe he should
keep better tabs at home and stop thinking he has the way the truth to all.
HE is trouble from day one.

Sounds like you are just trying to start trouble. If what your saying has a grain of truth than tell the school board. THere is nothing that can be done unless they know. Also if this person was never convicted or even charged, it doesnt mean they were innocent but it does mean that there was not enough evidence to proceed. Unless you have all the facts be careful with the gossip. You could harm an innocent person.

I can tell you that it doesnt matter if you go to the BOE, bc we became aware of this and went to the superintendent and he seemed to not care either, well I am guessing bc they are such buddy buddies! I believe they are saving the assistant superintendent job for him also. Only if enough people start complaining will anything be done, that is the problem, even if the charges were dropped, I was told that there should have still been a red flag when background checks were held and DC would have known. Of course this is the same BOE that just gave our superintendent a huge payraise for....??? what exactly has been improved in our county??
