fyi, background checks are done before hiring, however, if you have something on your record and write a letter explaining your situation, apparently you can talk your way out of it, even if it is a police record. Also, I would call BOE about those drug tests on teachers, staff, and bus drivers, bc I am pretty sure that is not happening in DC.

1st this discussion began about the Predator -- He/She can't talk their way out of this charge ---

2nd -- DC does NOT have an Assistant Super ---

3rd -- Bus Drivers start the year with a drug check and then the STATE comes in and does random checks

4th --- Do you really need to ask WHY he got a pay raise --- Look at the caoching line up for the coming year!!!

Yes DC does have an assistant superintendent he is supposed to be retiring, but since our infamous "predator" has one more year on his contract, and I am about 99 percent sure he will have the new position of assistant since he is such good friends with the superintendent, I believe they are not going to post the job for a year, or have a temp. person. Check out the DCBOE site staff and here it is: YES I BELIEVE THAT SAYS ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT

SPECIAL PROGRAMS Office
Mr. Richard Oyler (Assistant Superintendent)

On the subject of pay raise, it isn't a coincidence that all the filled positions are either from superintendent's own area towards St. Marys, and or friends of his. I have never seen so many special treatment hires in my life. In fact I do believe that our incompetent Elementary School principal is the wife of his former boss and she didn't have any experience as principal, you can tell, she was a counselor. This county is just as corrupt as any other, and a lot of people have the public fooled. People need to research who we have in our school system.

What happened to the good ol' days many years ago when the meeting rooms for the PTA or Board of Ed meetings would be standing room only because parents cared enough to show up to express concerns, show support or just ask for info when issues such as this surface?

Seems we are reduced to griping on a rag like topix instead? Glad I don't have kids in the county schools, as I hear so much of these stories about shenanigans, cohorts, favoritism, etc. Those who are angry about stuff like this going on, just need to show up at these school board meetings in person and in force! Yes indeedy, the county is corrupt as you say. But it goes way beyond little ol' Doddridge County. The whole damn state is pathetic and full of criminal activity by public officials. lol

Oyler is the Special Programs Director -- He does NOT have the education to be formally appointed as Assistant Super --

So you are saying that the ALLEGED Predator is ALREADY HIRED and NOT a NEW HIRE and is expected to take Oyler's place?

As for the new hires -- all of that is controlled by law and ANYONE that feels like their rights have been violated makes the choice of taking action -----

Sounds like you are just a disgrunted person trying to get everyone stirred up with your ALEGATIONS!! PROOVE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING!

YES this school system is bad and nasty,but hey its all in the family and Friends system also knowen as Doddridge County school system !!It also seems that if anyone wants to take your child out from a class room and question them with out any parents knowledge this is also ok.
How is it that a bus driver supervisor can take a child out of a class room take them to a closed room and question them about their familys and then have the school sup protect him??
YES its that bad and then some, and for the record the family had an atty act on this to prevent this act from happening again.

Seems like we have more than one disgruntled individual. Could it be our new BOE member wants her own family in different postion? Just a hoot--some of you are....

This is the first time I have posted on here bc I noticed the topic and had concerns for it too, not stirring up trouble. Also I am not the only one who has issues with our school system, and yes have already talked to the proper people in the county, not just posting on here, and of course nothing is ever taken care of, not sure how you can say we dont have an assistant superintendent, look online DCBOE it is listed, whether he is qualified, well that never stopped this county before, and yes this man who Mon. county wouldnt hire is and has been employeed here. I dont need to prove anything, you will see time will tell, bc nothing is done in this county without the all mighty superintendents approval. If he owes a favor, has a friend, former boss's wife, etc... they are promised positions in this county. My concern is for the children of the county bc jobs are being filled in this way, and anyone that thinks that just the BOE makes those decisions, think again, or just attend a board meeting and see who really runs the meeting, bc its not the president its the superintendent.

Amen to the concerned parent. I'm very worried about the direction our school system is headed in. There's no one holding our superintendent accountable for the horrible decisions he's making regarding the children in this county. Rick Oyler needs to go, Jeff harvey too.

Things in the county have progressively gotten worse since the addition of a specific individual and things need to be changed. We now have a new BOE member and maybe someone will finally challenge those who have been in charge for long enough.
As far as doing research on those who get hired in the county, it seems like the BOE should be trusted to make the best judgement possible for the public since their position is elected by public. Every aspect should be taken into consideration when hiring someone instead of bringing in somebody who counldn't get hired in Mon county.
