Liberty High School Assistant Principal Reinstated; Sensitivity Training Ordered by School Board

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | January 10, 2019
The Liberty High School administrator accused of confronting a transgender student for using the boys bathroom will be back to work next month.
The Harrison County Board of Education moved to reinstate assistant principal Lee Livengood following an executive session during Tuesday’s meeting.
“We were presented with an investigative report by Dr. Manchin and his staff, and based on that, we took into consideration all of the information that was presented and came out with a vote to reinstate after an unpaid suspension through Feb. 1, contingent upon meeting certain stipulations that are between Dr. Manchin, the Board of Education, and Lee Livengood,” said Board President Frank Devono, Jr.
While some of the stipulations are yet to be developed with the ACLU, Devono said that Livengood will be required to go through “sensitivity training.”
“There’s a sensitivity training program that we have been instituting in the county for a number of years, so I would assume that this sensitivity training is in regard to dealing with different diverse individuals in the school system,” he said. “As you know, there are many diverse populations in the school system in the county, and being able to interact with them in the appropriate manner is expected of all of our administrators and educators.”
