Board deems principal suspension appropriate

FAIRMONT, W.Va. — A Marion County principal’s job future is questionable after a recent 4-day suspension.

Tyson Furgason, Fairmont Senior High School Principal, has not been to work since January 4.

He was suspended by the superintendent, which board members deemed appropriate at their Tuesday meeting.

Furgason was accused of not meeting his daily job demands.

According to reports, there was no mention of when Furgason may return to work.

Fairmont police confirmed to WAJR Jan. 8 no criminal charges were being filed against Furgason.

Lt. John Murphy said there was no physical evidence of a crime the day Furgason left the school.  Prosecutors were considering the matter a personnel issue.
