Wetzel County Board of Education Approves Teacher Resignation

The Wetzel County Board of Education met in a closed-door special session Wednesday morning at its board office in New Martinsville to approve the resignation of Drew Schmalz, an English teacher with seven years’ service at Magnolia High School.

Schmalz submitted his resignation last Friday following various allegations of inappropriate conduct involving a student.

According to Wetzel County Schools Superintendent Tammy Wells, under the current circumstances, everything by the board was done according to state code.

Wells stated she was not at liberty to address any other issues involving the matter at this time and no further meeting dates have been set.
