Columbia County Teacher Suspended for Inappropriate Behavior
A Columbia County high school teacher has been suspended following a written complaint from a parent.
TV20 has learned that 64-year-old Oscar Wendell Feagle served a three-day suspension without pay at the end of May.
On April 22, the Columbia County School District received a complaint from a parent of a girl who was in Feagle's homeroom. The parent said that Feagle gave her daughter an application for a lifeguard position at Paradise Village mobile home park.
The parent said the application had many personal questions, and the district found Feagle violated policy and work rules.
Feagle violated several board policies as well as the Code of Ethics, according to a letter from the Office of the Superintendent addressed to Feagle.
Michael Millikin, superintendent of schools, wrote that Feagle used his position for personal gain, acted in an insubordinate manner and conducted personal business on school time.
He also wrote that Feagle potentially exposed students to unnecessary embarrassment or disparagement.
Feagle would not comment. A second student complained, but her parent asked the superintendent to not take action against Feagle for fear or retaliation.
