Educators hope next schools chief is from W.Va.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Some educators don't have a problem with the West Virginia Board of Education conducting a national search for a new schools superintendent. They just suggest viable candidates can be found within the state's borders.

Doddridge County Schools Superintendent Rick Coffman told The Exponent Telegram ( that a wish list for any candidate must include a strong educational background, an extensive resume and a high level of integrity.

Incoming Harrison County schools chief Mark Manchin says if a search firm determines that no viable candidate is available in West Virginia, then he has no problem with a search being conducted outside the state.

But Manchin and Coffman say a West Virginian would be a logical choice to run the state's school system.

Current superintendent James Phares is retiring June 30.
