July 17, 2023 Interested citizens of Tyler County: Because of the rumors and incorrect information circulated upon social media and throughout the community, we felt the need to clarify the situation the Tyler County Board of Education currently faces. This county’s Board of Education has oversight and control over our contracted employees in all but one area: the School Resource Officers. As most of the public is aware, these positions were filled by current deputies of our county’s sheriff’s department. What they may not understand is that the sheriff’s department is unwilling to work in a coordinated effort with the Board. Our recent decision to fill the SRO positions outside of the sheriff’s department was not a ‘knee-jerk’ reaction. This decision has been one long in the making, following at least four meetings this school year with the previous sheriff, the newly-appointed sheriff (one included the full board) and county commissioners, and as the result of multiple incidents that have snowballed for years. The Tyler County Board of Education has repeatedly attempted to negotiate the SRO contract, but the County Sheriff’s Department has been unwilling to come to the table, unwilling to meet the Board halfway. The Board had several issues we wanted restructured within the SRO contract, but only one was non-negotiable. That issue is who is placed in our facilities as SROs and in which facility they would serve. That one issue was proposed several different ways. The Board requested that certain officers not return as SROs and other deputies assigned, but that request was denied. We requested the transfers of School Resource Officers to different facilities within the county and were repeatedly denied this as well. Other proposals were offered as well. All were denied. We have received reports of inappropriate behavior by certain SROs, failure to adequately follow the protocol and adhere to their duties as School Resource Officers, interference within the curriculum of specific teachers, and claims of harassment. Our attempts at rectifying the situation have been unproductive due to the refusal by the administration of the county sheriff’s department to address our concerns. SROs are a valuable asset to any school system—ours included. These officers are often our first line of defense against any act of violence in our schools. But they also provide a positive influence for children deemed “at risk” or students who may not have strong role models in the home. School Resource Officers many times build a rapport with the students in their facilities, and often accompany school personnel on home visits when it becomes necessary to have a conversation with parents. However, when the Tyler County Sheriff’s Department refuses to allow the officers to attend School Resource Officer training, when they refuse to allow the SROs to accompany students on field trips, when they refused to supervise the parking lots until a student was grazed by a vehicle, we must act. I saw many comments on social media over the weekend regarding officers and the invaluable service they provide to children who may be suffering abuse at home, and that’s true. They often are the eyes and ears of the community. However, during Covid, when schools were shut down, the sheriff’s department refused to allow the officers onboard the buses to see the students who were receiving school lunches. In 12 out of the 13 surrounding counties that use their local sheriff’s departments to provide SROs, those sheriff’s departments work cooperatively with the school boards to place officers in their facilities. We are only asking to be included in the process of determining which officer is a good fit for each of our schools. We need some say in who’s in our buildings and who would work best in each school-- just as the sheriff’s department would want some say over who is in their building at any given moment. We regret that the Board of Education and the Tyler County Sheriff’s Department cannot cooperatively address these issues and concerns. Our primary goal is educating students in a safe environment but without the assistance of the officers we depend on for security, we have looked elsewhere to provide the services we need. We absolutely must address these issues in a timely manner and we would prefer to do so working with the sheriff’s department, but they also must be willing to work with us and take our concerns seriously. Finally, as someone who has over 30 years of volunteering with the schools or working within the school system, and as the director of the Family Resource Network, I am appalled and insulted that anyone would think the members of this board do not have the best interests of our students at heart. No one takes a seat on the County Board of Education for the glitz and the glamour. We do this because we have vested interests in our community, our children, and the performance of our schools. On this board we have a former teacher and long-time board member, two parents of school-aged children who attend Tyler County schools, myself who worked diligently to bring the Child Advocacy Center to Wetzel and Tyler counties and the parent of a graduate of our school system, and a grandparent to students, father-in-law to a teacher, and is another long-time board member. We are five people with very different beliefs and backgrounds but we voted UNANIMOUSLY on this subject. That alone speaks volumes and it should be obvious that we have information on the subject that the public does not. Thank you, Shane Highley, Superintendent Linda Hoover, President Katrina Byers, Vice President Curtis Heintzman, Scott Strode, And Larry Thomas, board members of the Tyler County BOE

Parents and Guardians Tyler County Schools Board of Education voted 5-0 Tuesday July 11th 2023 to hire four school resource officers for Tyler County Schools. These individuals will be retired police officers, retired state troopers, and or active police officers. In criminal matters outside of the school, dealing with school matters, Tyler County Schools will still be working with the Tyler County Sheriffs office and West Virginia State Police. These School Resource Officers will provide security for our campuses, work with local agencies to create crisis plans, mentor children, and act as a liaison between Tyler County Schools and Law Enforcement.
